Reminds Me Of Old-Time Radio Show
Who was your favorite character and why?
I couldn't say that I favored one character over another. They were all important to how this story flowed.
Have you listened to any of Penny Scott-Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have not listened to Ms. Scott-Andrews but after having her read to me here that will change. She added to my enjoyment of this book and I can't wait to listen to it again.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I would love to be able to listen to the book in one sitting but at least this time around it just wasn't possible. As I was getting toward the end, it had me think about what people used to do before television was around. As a family they would sit around the radio to listen to their favorite programs. Now we have Alexa. I can picture myself asking "Alexa" to play "Undead Quiet" and not moving until the program was over.
Any additional comments?
This is a story that has you thinking about how it would fit into the past. It has me thinking of the GSN program "Steampunk'd" - sadly it only lasted one season. I could picture the contestants designing all the sets and costumes in order to bring Ms. Pavesic's work to life. It's a story that has fantasy, mystery and possibly our future - it shows that nothing is off limits. I thought this author to be very creative especially when you think of how much had to be put into creating the world she's giving us a glimpse into.
My disappointment came at the end which left me saying "no, No, NO!" I'm hoping that there will be a follow up to this story so I know what's going to happen - you can't just leave me hanging. Also have to hope that the book is followed up with the audio version and that Ms. Scott-Andrews will continue as the narrator.
I voluntarily reviewed an Audiobook copy of this book.
