The story is really intriguing if you like paranormal romance with a twist. Both main characters are likeable and even endearing...In a very particular way. As for the narration, It perfectly fits my idea of Keith's inner speach, and I found the rhythm engaging. My only complaint is that It was too short. I wish there was more!
If you're looking for an urban fantasy with a dry humor and new take on old cliches, Cherries Worth Getting might be just for you.
It makes think of Long Dark Teatime of the Soul.
I very much enjoyed the dry, unflappable delivery of Keith Curry, as he encounters a goblin ex-lover, cannibals,chefs, and an extremely memorable vampire recluse.
I laughed out loud.
I very much enjoyed the dry, noir delivery of the voice actor as he navigated this strange, dark and hilarious story. It conjured images of Philip Marlowe taking on all the weirdness of urban fantasy.
