A little fast on reading,but keeps your attention on point. Reminds me a lot of the old time radio shows
Love those am so happy to see that it has returned. As they go on male and remake readers for the parts. Highly recommend these books
In the very beginning I had trouble listening to this. Maybe for the first half or three-quarters of an hour. But the story really hits it's stride then and from that point on unwashed hooked. There isn't any of the usual trope of no one believing in magic even though it's in front of their face. Who I suspected to be the killer was constantly changing as the book went on and more evidence was found
Probably not. I didn't find the story tremendously engaging and I had trouble relating to many of the characters. It didn't suck me in and I had to start and stop quite a bit just to get through it.
The gaggle of misguided psychics were all very two dimensional and even the descriptions of the murders were sort of bland. I wanted the story to be deeper and to evoke a clearer tale for my imagination.
All of it. He is a very gifted narrator and saved this book, in my opinion. He has the gumshoe voice of Marcella so well developed. He would be an incredible reader for most books. His female voices sounded believable. Honestly, the narration was the best part of the book.
Well, it inspired me to look up Eric Shelman and I found out he also wrote some books. If he writes half as well as he narrates it will be entertaining to check out some of his work.
The book is not terrible, it just isn't as richly detailed as I typically like my story. This would be a fun car listen.
Thank God for books of all kinds and ears to hear
I listened to this book with great attention in the beginning. I found the definitions for all the different types of psychic powers to be fascinating. I was familiar with almost all of them, but never presented like this. Then my attention started to wander. I really hate losing track of what's going on and having to rewind and so on so I steeled myself to listen to the rest of the book and not get too disappointed the best was over. However, it suddenly picked back up and got really interesting again and I never got lost again. It was a thrilling ride although a bit gory and a few times I had to groan "Oh, come on!" I really liked the detectives and am glad this is Book 1. Look forward to the next one - wonder where it will lead?
The narrator was perfect for the role of the detectives and did a great job will all the voices.
I was gifted this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
I am just girl who loves my husband, dogs, shopping online and books!
The Witches Ladder. I really liked the magic and witchcraft being thrown in to present day mystery, but it is totally different then most mysteries out there. it was not a bad story, but it just wasn't my cup of tea.

I am addicted to books. Nothing makes me happier than crawling inside a good book.
Weird, unnatural, and disbelieving
The detective, the story focuses around him and his changing beliefs.
This book was ok, it was a little hard to believe that it could be possible with the witches ladder. It seems to be more like a cult book where each start killing off member of the cult.

Among all the audiobooks I listened to of this genre, The Witch's Ladder would place in the top 20.
My favorite character is Lillith because of her non apologetic attitude. She doesn't care what you think or what comes out of her mouth. I found her character the most interesting.
Eric Shelman brings the book to life. He has great pace, inflection is a very enthusiastic narrator. He does not bore you and manages to assist you in envisioning the scenes as they happen.

I had no idea what to expect, but this certainly wasn't your run of the mill cozy detective mystery. Detective Tony Marcella told the tale of a bizarre series of murders occurring at an institute for paranormal studies in his town. The deaths came fast and frequently and always with more description than I would expect... which sometimes made me wish less time had been spent on the gruesome descriptions. One in particular that stands out - I won't spoil by telling you who is the victim - was the description of stringy hamburger being blown out of someone's nose while their head was getting bashed in.Suffice it to say - I think this story has a very masculine bent to it... meaning, if you like gore and violence more than introspection and description, then you will probably really enjoy this book. I'm not so fond of that stuff, myself - but I ABSOLUTELY LOVED the exploration of paranormal experiences, from bilocation to various kinds of divination to temporal hypnosis and the witch's ladder, etc....I will check out the next book in the series, and mute the sound when he gets to the gory stuff... I want to hear the rest of what's happening, and I'm looking forward to more character development of the main character as the series continues.

The story was a little uneven but enjoyable. Eric did a nice job with the pacing of the story. I like the banter between the partners. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.
The narrator was expressive and the voices were easily distinguishable. The accent of the Latin Detective was very realistic and not caricature at all.
It could have been more descriptive. I had a hard time picturing the characters and their surroundings.
I have not listened to any that I am aware of.
I enjoyed the lightheartedness late in the story.
Overall, it was an enjoyable story and was told very well.
