A Goofy Pooch

This is the first time I have read a story by Kevin Hearne. This novella is number two in the Oberon’s Meaty Mysteries. It apparently is a spin-off of the Iron Druid Chronicles. The book works well as a stand-alone story.

Oberon is an Irish Wolfhound and is the doggie protagonist. His human companion is a druid called Atticus O’Sullivan. Oberon’s canine companion is an Irish Wolfhound bitch called Orla and Starbuck a Boston Terrier. Apparently, Oberon thinks all squirrel are evil and must be chased.

In this story Oberon and companies are taking a train trip to Portland, Oregon. A man looking like Atticus is murdered. Atticus decides to investigate.

The book is well written. Hearne does a good job putting the reader inside his canine characters’ minds. I just love the doggy quips. They made me laugh out loud. My great grandmother raised Boston Terriers and Starbuck reminded me of her dog, Lady. The story is told by Oberon and is completely from his canine viewpoint. This novella is a lighthearted diversion and I found it great to wind up the year with.

It is three hours long. Luke Daniels does a great job narrating the story. Daniels is an actor and has won thirteen Earphone Awards and three Audies for his narration of audiobooks.

Everything that happened was the squirells fault

Just good honest fun. Lost count of the times I LOL'd, the plot is almost incidental to just hanging out with some old friends and meeting some new ones. Luck Daniels does his usual amazing work with the narration.

Credits voiced by Oberon!!!

I love this entire series and the ones from Oberon’s perspective are especially funny. I laughed out loud in the grocery store while listening. The cherry on top is that the opening and closing credits are in the Oberon voice.

I would recommend listening to the main series before this and also the previous Oberon one.

Luke Daniels rocks, as always.

Oberon's Meaty mysteries deliver the goods!

Great story! I would have loved more of this book but it is a great short story. Oberon has become my favorite character from the Iron Druid chronicles and I can't wait until the next one comes out. The story is full of intrigue, mystery, adventure and of course, dreaded SQUIRRELS! Lots of fun and another great performance by Luke Daniels!

this is the BEST short story I have listened to or read in a long long time. The voice of Oberon was perfection.
