Would you listen to Mist in the Mirror again? Why?

No red herrings, thoroughly spooky. I liked the archaic language and the fact that nothing gave a clue to the ending.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Mist in the Mirror?

When he is locked in the tomb. I was terrified.

What about Matt Addis’s performance did you like?

Good voice, nice diction, excellent characterizations. He handles for formal language style with ease and lures you in.

Any additional comments?

Although I started reading Susan Hill for the Serrailler series (which is fabulous and one of my favourites) her other stories are equally addictive (except for Gullywith).

What did you love best about Blasphemy?

I am a total fan of Douglas Preston and Preston & Lincoln Child, and read everything they write. This book, however, was definitely one of Preston's best. It catches you right from the beginning -- you are totally hooked. The setting is believable, and dialogue real. The ending was superlative.The whole premise is so real I am surprised that no one ever picked up on it before.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blasphemy?

Can't tell you without giving away some of the plot -- you need to be totally unprepared.

Have you listened to any of Scott Sowers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Great voice and characterizations without any annoying quirks.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES

Any additional comments?

I bought this in audio after I had read the book, just to be able to concentrate totally on the plot.
