Three bank robbers are on the run following a rather unusual heist. They decide to seek shelter for the night in a tiny, seemingly harmless town. However, the following morning they awaken to discover that the town they chose is actually some form of disturbingly cheery utopia complete with sickly sweet citizens who have the rather odd habit of breaking into perfectly choreographed song and dance numbers.
When they try to leave, they discover that getting out of this bizarre little village may not be as easy as they thought. As night begins to fall and the far more sinister side of the town begins to emerge from the shadows, they begin to realize they may not be able to escape with their lives at all.
So, sing and dance along with our heroes! Impress your friends! Creep out your co-workers! Terrify strangers on the bus! As they try to fight their way past satanic show tune singers, shotgun-happy sheriffs, monsters, and more in Musicarolina, a tale of monsters, demons, criminals, and fabulous musical numbers!
I found myself easily wrapped up in this book. I couldn't stop listening to Mr. Gunning's elaborately told adventure. From the scenes set in the present, the scenes set in flashbacks, and dare I say it, even the songs left me wanting to continue the tale.
The characters, the references, and my inability to compare this to any other book makes me want to share it with as many people as possible. If you're looking for a story that is an unexpected surprise, then this is the book you need.
Theo Holland did an excellent job reading Daniel's words.

Theo Holland brings each character to life with a different voice and/or accent.

The story was good and entertaining but the voice actor didn't sing any of the musical parts. He just talked thru all the musical parts with a weird robot voice mix. It really ruined a lot of the story. Wait untill they get a new voice actor/cast that can actually sing the parts.
