AMAZING

The narrator is fantastic, the story is incredible. It's a fascinating idea that is written so well and thought out very carefully. Genuinely didn't expect a lot of the twists! 10/10

Great read

This is a quirky story with a twist in its tail.
Absorbing from beginning to end.
The only slightly irritating thing is the southern US drawl of the narrator (‘ah’ instead of ‘ee’). You forget it after a while as the story unfolds ...

Could have been amazing

The narrator was excellent, the story was meh. Such a clever concept and it really should have been in-put-downable but I had to rewind and go back a number of times. Sorry but it’s a NO from me and I’m (sadly) unlikely to read this author again

Too gruesome for me!

While I found the storyline good and intriguing and it kept me going for 2/3rds of the book, the main character's gruesome behaviour became too much for me. I've decided to return it unfinished.

Not a fan

The narration was great, the plot not so much. The ending really made no sense and left me regretting listening to the whole thing.

Interesting and different

The main character and his activities were difficult to listen to and unlike any character I have ever read but, in saying that, I found I had to keep listening to find out what happens.
The story had quite a few twists and turns and I found the narrator brilliant, very clever especially around character vocals.

Not at all what I was expecting.

I thought the Southern twang would drive me crazy but now I couldn't think of Blake speaking any other way! So good!

Excellent story, terribly narrator!

The story gets interesting in the second half of the book. I really enjoyed it.

The problem is the narrator! He is just ridiculously fast. I slowed down to 0.75X to listen to it comfortably. Narrator has to slow down!!!

Gladly Recommended 😊

I enjoyed the story and narration very much. Loved the unexpected twist quite a surprise! The Texas drawl is a little hard on the ear to start with, but after a while it just becomes a natural part of the characters. Definitely worth a listen.
