Very different from what I have read before, so a nice change from the usual formula.
Fresh and clever PI who never gives up even with his draw backs which are many.
Good reading ability
"A decent read"
This book was enjoyable to listen to, the narrator did a good job. The story isn't bad, but plays out a lot like the typical who-done-it mystery. What I enjoyed most about this listen was the imagination that was put into the various creatures that inhabit this alter world. There are a couple of well scripted moments that gave me some great visuals in my head and made me feel like I was there, witnessing something otherworldly.
But overall, this doesn't rate more than 3 stars in my book. It just doesn't stand out in the way that some of the other series I listen to do.
I've read this before but forget how it ended. Spot on narration and the pacing of the book kept me listening. Now I can listen to book two in the series. Did I mention the funny parts, because there is levity in the dire parts. Overall good read.
"Dead on arrival"
The one thing I detest in audio books is when the narrator mispronounces words...COMMON words...
