I'm a little thick so it took me a few chapters to realize the first person narrative switches between three people - but once that was established I was able to enjoy how well-written, insightful, and witty this book was. Billy Boyd was a lovely narrator although once in a blue moon his Scottish accent slipped through when voicing an American character - this honestly made it sound more charming. If you're looking to buy an easy book which doesn't involve thinking, maybe go in a different direction - there are a lot of political undertones which drive you to do some critical thinking. Overall excellent!
Billy really can't do a Lancs accent, but it doesn't spoil the enjoyment. In fact it just adds to the humour. if you like Parlabane and his antics, you'll enjoy the listen. The side characters blossoming romance is really endearing and as an added bonus Michael's a Firefly fan.
I love Christopher Brookmyre and this book didn't alter that!
Listening to his stories added an extra entertainment factor!
The book is based around an investigation into the paranormal, and unexplained murders around the central characters. The story had me both laughing outloud and tense listening out for the conclusion to situations.
A book dictated from beyond the grave....gave me shivers and laughs.
