"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."

I loved the book. It was quick, witty, and has that dash of snark sarcasm I look for in the protagonist. Great Contemporary Fantasy!
I heart scifi, and have become addicted to listening instead of reading, or even watching tv.
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.
1*=I didn't like it..... 2*=It was OK...... 3*=It was good but I will never read it again.......... 4*=Maybe I will read it again in the future.............. 5*=I will definitely read it again(maybe more than once)
This book was awesome!!!!
I decided to listen to a small 30 minute piece and I couldn't stop!!!!
I already bought the second book and I'm just waiting for the weekend.
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.
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.
My favorite thing about this book was the attitude, irreverence, of the main character.
One of the most memerable momments was the release of the lost childrens' souls in the
His ability with is voice and the ability to play both men and women
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!!!!
Say something about yourself!
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.
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.
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.
He see's and fight dead people.
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?
Supernatural DryHumor Modern
It has the dry humor and less nonsense of Dresden, or Briggs.
The book is broken into episodes - rather than chapters - so waiting and listening to the next part seems to make it a bit better. The important bits are highlighted again in the next episode, so it is closer to an anthology of novellas.
I like action, gore, zombies, and non-fiction.
The story is a very interesting one, and there were a lot of directions the author could have gone. But the book never really got there. I stopped listening about 3/4 of the way through, bored. That's not a good sign for a book about ghosts.
