Not since Peter Clines at his best have I been so enthralled by a set of books. At the end of this book I just want to start the first and go for the ride with the Bobs once again.

Peter shows his range in this captivating novel

One of the things I love about PC's work is how attached you become to his central characters. There was a moment in this novel when I experienced an internal cringe "oh no, Peter, this isn't the central idea is it" - I won't give anything way - but within a few minutes, perhaps more, relaxed and realised all would be well.

Like other reviewers, I can't await for another instalment...

I felt that Lee enjoyed writing these stories

This set of short stories was a lot of fun to listen to. I can't put my finger on it but I felt that the author was talking to me far more directly in some of these stories than the long form he normally produces.

LC is one author I go back to from time to time when I'm on a long drive or working outside -there are a number of his novels that I can reliably go back to and listen to again - sort of like a favourite old movie. This set of short stories will be added to that list.

thanks Lee - I know you hang on my every word.... :)

An epic story that seems bloated at times

The writing style can feel bloated at times going into detail to seemingly increase the length of the story. Once you get used to the fairly slow pace of the novel it becomes quiet enjoyable. The story itself is entertaining and thoughtful - good for those that like a story that takes its time to unfold.
