Dead Eye: Pennies for the Ferryman | [Jim Bernheimer]

Dead Eye: Pennies for the Ferryman

"My name is Mike Ross. I'm a Ferryman. I help people with ghost problems, or ghosts with people problems. Funny thing, no one ever helps me with my problems. Civil War ghosts bent on killing me, Skinwalkers who just want my body, and a vindictive spirit linked both to my bloodline and my destiny... It turns out the dead still hold a good deal of influence over the world, and they don't want to give it up. I'm in way over my head. Fortunately, I'm too stubborn to quit."

    "Keep your iron tools handy."

    A funny story about a guy who becomes a ferry man and helps souls cross over. Unfortunately he has to make a living somehow and ghost don't make a lot of money. In the meantime he is having problems with girls, ghost, skin walkers, soldiers and even mobsters. He never seems to get a break. It is not a book for deep thinking and some of the points of views are stereo typical but I enjoyed the story and will be getting the next one. The narrator was good, but dry and I can't help but think it would have been funnier if it had a different narrator. The story picks up the second half of the book. I happened to pick this up because a guy who likes Monster Hunter International recommended this book and was glad I read the reviewers other books.

    "Add the others Audible!"

    This was good I had this in my wish list for a while, hmmming and hawing... Glad I finally took the plunge. I had listened to Confessions of a D list Super Villan, and really enjoyed that, but this seemed so different I wasn't sure.
    Bernheimer's style of writing is no nonsense. He doesn't waste time explaining scenes and feelings and thoughts that have no bearing on the story, it's straight to the point, which is a nice change of pace. Mike Ross is a war vet that has a cornea transplant and can suddenly see ghosts. It's so much more complex and fun than that of course, but you should listen to it.
    Apparently it's a series and there's more books. So come on Audible! I hate when you just add one book from a series. Keep them coming.

    "Like Harry Dresden? You will love Michael Ross!"

    I loved the book. It was quick, witty, and has that dash of snark sarcasm I look for in the protagonist. Great Contemporary Fantasy!

    "Wow not my genre of books but I really liked it!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    ok, if you have read Confessions of a D-List Super hero then the main characters are the same but in different Genre's. Which is actually awesome in my opinion. The reason why you like D-List superhero is the main character is a Sarcastic Hero that doesn't want to be the hero. Same here!!!
    The main character in Dead Eye, Mike Ross, is very down to earth and unlike the whiner super hero's you read about in comics that are "cursed with power". Mike is more annoyed and confused with his "gift". He is the reluctant hero type and his sarcasm is much more humorous than whinning hero's in other books. I had a chance to speak with the author and he did say if you like D-list superhero you will like this book. He was right. A definate must read!!!!

    "Good idea...good entertainment."

    I liked the story. The premise was interesting, and the hero was likeable. I would have enjoyed it more if the author had fleshed out the characters more, but all in all worth a listen.

    "Best Ghost story i've listened too!"
    Where does Dead Eye: Pennies for the Ferryman rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Man, this was a really great book, I enjoyed the narration a lot! There were a few slow parts, but the ending was really good. And Mike was a ton of fun. He definitely had a couple of lucky breaks, and there were parts where I literally groaned at some of his poor decisions. But that just makes him human.

    "Being a ferryman is dangerous work..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Eye: Pennies for the Ferryman to be better than the print version?

    To me audio version is better than print because I get more of the feel of the book, but not all people are the same as me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Eye: Pennies for the Ferryman?

    When he spoke to the first dead person which was he's grandfather, to me that would have been a great moment to have spoken to a loved one that had passed on.


    Which character – as performed by Jeffrey Kafer – was your favorite?

    I would have to say Mike Ross, because one he's the main character and he's just a likeable person in one way or another.


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

    He see's and fight dead people.


    Any additional comments?

    To me this book reminds me of the movie "the eye", but sooooo much better. It's got action, suspense, some comedy and a blind priest that sees dead people too. What more can you ask for?

    "Life as a Ferryman"

    I found Dead Eye to be interesting and enjoyable. It reminds me of The Dresden Files
    series by Jim Butcher mixed with a little of the Sandman Slim series by Richard Kadrey.
    The main character is a man named Mike Ross who returns from the Iraq War to find that he has the ability to see and interact with ghosts, and skin walkers.Mike is what they call a Ferryman and he has the ability to send spirits on. This is the first book in this series and I will defiantly be checking out the next book.
