    "Outstanding plot with a brilliant audio delivery!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Mind Scrambler to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the print version


    What other book might you compare Mind Scrambler to and why?

    Dr. Siri series (Laos) in that both series have a humor element to them, which at times can be dark.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Woodman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. ROLLING THUNDER. Both were superb narratives.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. The plot and story involve adult themes that have a dark twist at the end--but somehow the story did not leave me depressed. Partly, because the forces of Good won over and vanquished the forces of Evil. Yes, this book does address good and evil.


    Any additional comments?

    A better, more nuanced story than ROLLING THUNDER, which was actually written later. I liked the comedic flavor of THUNDER, but thought the story line to be a bit shallow. Not so with MIND SCRAMBLER. If you are new to his series, start with SCRAMBLER. It will hook you into listening to more of his stories.

    I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.

    "Not my favorite - but still good!"

    I think I didn't like this Ceepak Mystery as much because it wasn't set in SeaHaven. Because it was set in Atlantic City, there were not as many of the usual characters in it. I missed them. Don't get me wrong - it was still very good and, of course, I wasn't even close to figuring out who dunnit - he always comes up with endings I never see coming!

    "Too many characters for audio"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No - unless they bought the paper version. Too many characters for me when in audio form, especially as I usually listen when I'm doing something else at the same time eg gym, mowing the lawn). Also, it was about a quarter of the way in before the crime actually occurred - there is too much dialogue that doesn't really contribute to the story - just padding really.


    What about Jeff Woodman’s performance did you like?

    The narrator made an excellent job of creating different voices. There were a lot of characters, and he had a different voice for all of them. Faultless narration.


    Did Mind Scrambler inspire you to do anything?

    Inspired me not to get another audio book by this author. Too long and not fast moving enough, although it picked up a bit towards the end.


    Any additional comments?

    A bit too much swearing and a lot of it really didn't need to be included, although I know it's part of the characters persona.

    "My least favorite of the series"

    I've enjoyed Mr. Grabenstein's books however he needs to lose the political jabs and stick to writing amusing mysteries.

    "Excellent as Always"

    I love the Ceepak and Boyle books and Jeff Woodman does a terrific job on the narration. Thank goodness Chris Grabenstein will get to continue the series so Audible make sure you continue with the audiobooks!

    "Buy the whole Ceepak series."

    A nice light listen. Stories were not predictable, and quite humorous at times, My husband and I both enjoyed them all. (A highly unusual occurrence)
