I love to read books and write them! :)
Going into "Ghost Girl: The Wild Hunt" I knew some about it, but didn't know enough, so everything was a nice surprise. Honestly, I have to say I liked it a lot. The way the story played out make me think of the old Pulp Stories from the 20s to the many Gothic paperbacks that I've read. Two things that I even write myself and enjoy to read. I think that's why I liked this book so much.
It's hard not too especially, when you have the Holzer family involved. It's a mix of terror, excitement, and if anyone finds this boring, then they weren't listening to the same program. I know my genres like this and this "Ghost Gal" series is something I want to see more of. After listening to it, I'm going to have to pick up a hard copy! The story flows nicely, it involves a wicked ghost named "The Slaugh," and it's a good read that is fast paced. I think that's what made it's good, it gets to the point, but also doesn't feel too rushed either. It's about a family of ghost hunters,that are might fight a powerful Scottish legend.
So in other words, honestly surprised and happy to have gotten the chance to listen to the book. It might helped that I was listening to the story on a foggy Monday afternoon. Though the book gives you enough details that you could listen to it on a sunny day.
It's hard to pick one favorite character. I didn't know that Hans Holzer was going to get to play a part in the book, that was a surprise (A good one). The Slaugh was kind of terrifying , but written with great detail that he was a good character. Of course Alexandra Holzer was another favorite character, she is after all our Ghost Gal.
Gene Blake's performance was pretty good. He was good at switching back and forth to accents (especially the Slaugh) and his voice had enough emotion when needed. This was my first time listening to anything read by Blake and I would do it again.
The words that would describe my reactions to the book:
Terrified (The beginning got me)
Of course wanting more.
I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a creepy, yet exciting tale that has an excellent reader. I would also say that buy this version too and buy yourself one you can read too.
The narrator did a great job of distinguishing between the characters, not just by gender but also by personality. I could really visualize the backdrops of the story.
Supernatural detective stories.
His narration brought a fun dynamic to the story.
I listened to this story over the holidays while traveling. The story and the narration really helped to make the trip go by faster. Looking forward to more audio stories from this author and narrator.
The story has deftly crafted characters and situations that once again shows why Bobby Nash is one of the most dependable names in New Pulp. This is a different pool for Bobby to be swimming in as I don’t recall him ever having done anything in the paranormal/supernatural investigator realm before but no matter. Talent is talent and when you have it you can write anything and make it entertaining.
There's not a single memorable moment that I would single out as there are several of those in the book. Bobby Nash doesn't just lead you up to one memorable moment and then that's it. he strings them all throughout the story, making you want to continue to see what other surprises he's got waiting for you.
Well, it kept me entertained. Does that count?
Exciting story with very effective narration. maintained the suspense of the story all the way.
