Poe | [J. Lincoln Fenn]

Poe

It's Halloween, and life is grim for twenty-three-year-old Dimitri Petrov. It's the one-year anniversary of his parents' deaths, he's stuck on page one thousand of his Rasputin zombie novel, and he makes his living writing obituaries. But things turn from bleak to terrifying when Dimitri is assigned to cover a séance at the reputedly haunted Aspinwall Mansion. There, Dimitri meets Lisa, a punk-rock drummer he falls hard for. But just as he's about to ask her out, he unwittingly unleashes malevolent forces, throwing him into a deadly mystery.

Publisher's Summary

It's Halloween, and life is grim for twenty-three-year-old Dimitri Petrov. It's the one-year anniversary of his parents' deaths, he's stuck on page one thousand of his Rasputin zombie novel, and he makes his living writing obituaries. But things turn from bleak to terrifying when Dimitri is assigned to cover a séance at the reputedly haunted Aspinwall Mansion. There, Dimitri meets Lisa, a punk-rock drummer he falls hard for. But just as he's about to ask her out, he unwittingly unleashes malevolent forces, throwing him into a deadly mystery. He wakes up in the morgue - icy cold and haunted by a cryptic warning given by a tantalizing female spirit. As town residents begin to turn up gruesomely murdered, Dimitri must unravel the connections among his family, the Aspinwall Mansion, and the secrets held in a pair of crumbling antiquarian books. If he doesn't, it's quite possible Lisa will be the next victim.

    "Not finished - but need to write this!"

    I'm not even finished with this story, but need to write a review because it's so freaking awesome! The story is an edge-of-your-seat kind of thing. I love the twists and turns. However, the Luke Daniels is rockin' his role as reader! Not every book works to have a voice-driven and enthusiastic reader, but Poe is a perfect fit. At one moment, you are laughing, the next, consumed in an intimate moment - all enhanced by a perfect fit reader. What a rush!

    I've always loved books. Even before I could read I've loved them. Fact or Fiction, I love books. I'd sooner read a book than see a movie.

    Story
    "Humor, Horror and Suspence"
    What made the experience of listening to Poe the most enjoyable?

    The combination of Humor and Horror. It was like Stephen King and Robert Crias had a love child. Elvis Cole visits Derry Maine. I just loved it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Poe?

    The séance at the haunted Aspinwall Mansion and the scene with Lisa playing the drums for Demitri.


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    I liked his Russian accent, so I'd have to say Poe or Rasputin.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Nothing is every normal

    Story
    "Dissappointing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The entire book just "misses". The first 75% of the book is building up to something that never really materializes. The backstory is never really fleshed out, leaving the main characters without depth or dimension.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. Lincoln Fenn again?

    No, I don't think so.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Luke Daniels is an excellent narrator but he was far to mature for the characters in this book..


    Any additional comments?

    This book is missing on several fronts. The book is slow and meandering and leaves several areas glaringly understated. At about the 75% mark, the book rushes to a conclusion that never materializes. The villain who has been unrelenting to that point, suddenly decides to run and hide. It just makes no real sense.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book wasn't for me at all, but children should like to tell this story around campfires in their backyards during the daytime while singing Barney songs.


    What could J. Lincoln Fenn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    A more thought out storyline would be nice...


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Luke Daniels?

    Mr. Daniels was very good with what him had to work with.


    What character would you cut from Poe?

    The wanna be Stephen King undertone.


    Any additional comments?

    CUTE BUT NO CIGAR ... NOT EVEN CLOSE, but please try again.
