He is currently a Professor of Communication at Plattsburgh State University.

The narrator made it sound like a cartoon

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. I did get through it but it wasn't easy. The narrator ruined it. It sounded like a Saturday cartoon. He didn't differentiate voices very well and did not do women well. I was hoping for a Dresden type book.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I am thinking of steering away from paranormal towards basic mystery.

How could the performance have been better?

He just was not suited for the story.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No.

Any additional comments?

Honestly there might have been potential in the story, it couldn't hold my attention so I don't know.

Oh, Dear - what on earth??

Again, an entertaining book, enjoyable plot, interesting premise. But, really, why on earth would an FBI agent sound like Natasha from The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show? If you can get past the, shall we say 'unique,' narration, this would be worth listening to, but I'm not wasting any more credits.

comedy characters

What made the experience of listening to Evil Dark the most enjoyable?

The Story mixes may 2 favorite genre so we are on to a winner.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Main character Stan has grown considerably from the first book.

Have you listened to any of Peter Brooke’s other performances? How does this one compare?

The narrators additional character voices are very odd at times like something from a bad cartoon, there appear to be repeating segments that are not repeats as the inflection is different I assume someone screwed up with the editing of this together.
