Audio Review: Ghost Road Blues by Jonathan Maberry
|2 of 5 stars|
Part of the problem was the narrator. His voice was gravelly and deep and it suited some of the characters but it grated on me. Sorry but it’s true. It’s a personal thing and I know this. You may love his manly voice but it didn’t do it for me. His female voices were nothing short of atrocious and unnatural and I am not apologizing for that.
But the other part of my problem was the story itself. I can usually get past a not-so-fantastic narrator if the story grabs me but, try as I might, I could not stay focused on this story of violence (mainly) perpetrated by awful men. Spending time in the heads of these despicable fellows was not a fun time and I guess I just wasn’t in the mood for it because I found it slow and uninteresting and I didn’t find it even a wee bit scary. I enjoyed the small town setting but the awful things going on and around there just left me kind of numb and very bored. I didn’t care for any of the characters and that is always a big problem for me so I more than likely won’t be continuing on with the series.
