Amazing storyteller, crisp defined characters, and awesome pacing. Narration sounded a little to cheerful for the subject matter, yet didn't detract from the haunting and original story. Worth a credit.

I've always found the first half of this novel to be terrifying, while the second half drags. Still a great read, but Grover Gardner isn't the best narrator for it. Too bad it wasn't Frank Muller.

I love how this novel simultaneously honors and destroys every sci-fi trope in existence. I've loved listening to Crowshaw ever since he started reviewing video games and his witty brand of satire translate well into novel form. Yahtzee's drunk voice makes the book worth a credit all by itself in my opinion.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yeah, I'm really kinda getting sick of the zombie trope though.

Would you recommend The Shadow Man of Ichabod Lane to your friends? Why or why not?

For a credit yeah. Narration was good, story was funny.

What about Allen R. Brady’s performance did you like?

It was above average, but i found the slurching sound effects grating (as a rule I'm really not keen on sound effects in audiobooks at all)

Did The Shadow Man of Ichabod Lane inspire you to do anything?

Never go near ducks.

Any additional comments?

Fun little romp. Worth a credit.

If you could sum up Thinner in three words, what would they be?

Awesome creepy characters

What other book might you compare Thinner to and why?

Non really. King weaves a very original tale in thinner

What does Joe Mantegna bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He's the classic gangsta voice. If you have seen the movie he plays Ginnelle. His voice his almost hypnotic at time, also he sounds a little like Fat Tony from the simpsons.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending punched me in the gut.

Any additional comments?

Listen with the lights on.
