Fab Cautionary Tale

Where does Famous: A Novel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I read a lot of Blake Crouch, this is a great listen

Any additional comments?

This is a shorter audio book. I only purchased it because I trust Blake Crouch for consistent thrills when I'm in the mood for this kind of genre. I went into the story straight away. I will just say that I am not into 'celebrity' or that kind of thing and it really didn't matter, this story was so interesting I just kept listening. I love his play on the behavior of real celebrities behind the facade and that is how our main character slips into his new identity - brilliant. I also love the ending. I got sucked in straight away, its like one of those trashy movies you can't stop watching.

BC is my favourite literary junk food and I am not ashamed, not one bit!

A different kind of creepy fun

I didn't know what to expect. The basic premise seems obvious from the beginning and yet still feels creepy as it plays out. The story is well worth a read/listen.

Awesome

What made the experience of listening to Famous: A Novel the most enjoyable?

The story is very interesting, it hooks from the beginning straight through to the end...A twisted tale of 'be careful what you wish for...you just might get it.'

Lancelot

The narrator has a nice voice, easy to listen to

Stay calm! It's all part of the act! [He vomits!]

Fun light reading - for a thriller. Not too heavy and it works great for this story and the characters. I enjoyed it completely. ~JTC~

Not one of his best

Not bad, but pretty predictable and mot like his other, absolutely, fast paced books. Lazy Sunday read.
