There are lots of things to like about this book, the premise of bringing people back so they can tell you who murdered them or just so you can say goodbye to the love ones you lose is maybe not a new idea, as anyone who has ever seen the first episode of torchwood will tell you. That said I have read that Seth has stated he came up with the idea first, I say, I really don't care who thought of it first I'm just glad he wrote this take on the idea.
There are a few holes in the plot but its rare nowadays to find a plot without any.
So all in all I'd defanatly say give it a try.
Seth has taken me back to when I loved watching the twilight zone, and made me hungry for some more strange tales.
Now for the bad bit
If you have never heard a Irishman before then you may be able to forgive.
But ari fliakos does to the Irish what dick van dyke did to the cockney accent.
For the most part I thought he was doing a Scottish person pretending to be Irish ( just picture Sean Connery in untouchables)
I was hoping he would be a minor character, but no such luck.
For those of you that read as much you listen to audio books, then maybe this is one to read.
I did get past it by just pretending he lied about where he was from, ( unlike Roy detrice doing daenerys in the a dance with dragons.... Don't get me started on that)
Sorry I digress,
If your looking for something a bit different and are fine with Americans who can't do accents well then download it now
You won't be disappointed.
This is a good solid urban fantasy
The only things I'd say are
1.. the reader of this book talks at a good pace
So you may see it's only 10hrs but it was a slow plodding reader it would be around 15hrs I'd say
I like the readers pace, as I often speed up my readers if they are too slow.
And 2.. When the reader is on a exciting bit he speeds up and you can hear him breath in all the time.
I found this a tad distracting at times and lost the thread of what was being said.
A generous four stars from me
