The Invisible Ones | [Stef Penney]

The Invisible Ones

Small-time private investigator Ray Lovell veers between paralysis and delirium in a hospital bed. But before the accident that landed him there, he'd been hired to find Rose Janko, the wife of a charismatic son of a traveling Gypsy family, who went missing seven years earlier. Half Romany himself, Ray is well aware that he's been chosen more for his blood than his investigative skills.

Publisher's Summary

Small-time private investigator Ray Lovell veers between paralysis and delirium in a hospital bed. But before the accident that landed him there, he'd been hired to find Rose Janko, the wife of a charismatic son of a traveling Gypsy family, who went missing seven years earlier. Half Romany himself, Ray is well aware that he's been chosen more for his blood than his investigative skills. Still, he's surprised by the intense hostility he encounters from the Jankos, who haven't had an easy past. Touched by tragedy, they're either cursed or hiding a terrible secret-whose discovery Ray can't help suspecting is connected to Rose's disappearance.

    Story
    "Great narration! Slow story that plods along."

    I purchased this audio book based on two things . . . First, Dan Stevens was the narrator and, in my opinion and without a doubt, Dan Stevens is one of the best narrators I've ever listened to. He truly enriches any book he reads. Second, after reading the reviews, it sounded like a worthwhile read.

    The story was interesting, but it seemed to plod along. It took so long to get through the plot and then it suddenly ended. I liked the two main characters Ray Lovell and JJ and how they shared the story. I felt sympathetic toward both of them . . . especially JJ.

    You may be right; I may be crazy. But I just may be the lunatic you're looking for!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! Even people who aren't


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes! A plot within a plot within a plot within a . . .


    What about Dan Stevens’s performance did you like?

    He is perfect for the book. My book club friends who read the book saw it in a whole new way when I played them exerts of Steven's voices


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If only it were possible - yes


    Any additional comments?

    "One of the Best Listens Ever"
    If you could sum up The Invisible Ones in three words, what would they be?

    Engrossing, Informative, and Touching.


    Which character – as performed by Dan Stevens – was your favorite?

    JJ Without a doubt was my favorite. His vocalization of the character added so much life to the story and to the Janko family. It made me feel as if JJ was real and was telling his story.


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

    Yes. I admit I am a fan of Dan Stevens' work but I was so moved by his interpretation of this book that the buildup to the 'big reveal' was perfectly executed.

    "Great plot and narration keep you reading!"

    Well constructed and excellently narrated. I did figure out the "mystery" well ahead of the end, but that did not detract from my enjoyment of this book. I will be looking for more works by both of these artists.

    the characters were wonderfully drawn and the writing was fantastic. Put it all together with one of the best narrators, and it's a hit!
