    "I wish for more"

    If you had 4 wishes for anything you wanted, what would you choose?
    Would you be willing to do anything to get those wishes?
    Locke uses his now familiar technique of writing half of a Donovan creed novel as a completely new character. But this time the new guy’s a real turd and because of this Locke is able to take his unique blend of humour and disgust to new levels. I hate to say it though: It became a bit predictable in the second half as soon as Creed got involved.

    The premise is silly, the plot light. But this is true Locke, heating it up just a little more. He addresses subjects that likely have been done before, but not with his flair for the ability to bring out the worst in people. You can’t read this one if you haven’t read at least Lethal Experiment; the second half will be too unbelievable otherwise. It’s a fast read and a refreshing return to normal—Locke’s version—after Now and Then.

    "Kept me listening every chance I got."
    What made the experience of listening to Wish List the most enjoyable?

    Being constantly suprised


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alway Donavan Creed


    Have you listened to any of L.J. Ganser and Rich Orlow ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Both narrators were just right for the characters. They kept me engaged.

    "Great fiction for grown-ups (not prudes)"

    I'm fairly new to John Locke's books, but having read BOX on my Kindle Fire, and wanting to try out Audible, I decided to give this one a shot. And what can I say, I was blown away! Great story, and very nicely narrated by L.J. Ganser and Rich Orlow.

    And, yes, it has lots of sexual references and words that adults use, but if you know anything about John Locke's body of works, you'll know what to expect.

    So, if you're a grown-up, that enjoys non-mainstream fiction for grown-ups, and have a decent sense of humor, then this book is for you. Please don't pay any attention the poor reviews by some prudes - this is a great story.

    "Revolting sexual violence"
    What would have made Wish List better?

    If I'd never bought it.


    Any additional comments?

    Since Audible's reviews don't seem to warn about extreme violence, I hope this helps other readers to decide on this book.
