Ghosts of Decembers Past and Present
Good story but disappointing adaptation
Not the audiobook. Narration is hamfisted and the music to add drama is embarrassing.
Have read others but not listened
It's heavy handed. Groans and screams etc are over acted.
Possibly if directed by right person
The first 50 minutes of the audiobook is almost unlistenable. It is a chaotic mix of visions and terrible Celtic music interruptions and I nearly gave up on it as I tried to remember why I had liked the book so much when I read it over 10 years ago. It eventually settles into a more traditional narrative but the occasional further bursts of bad Celtic music that are there to "add to the mood" are amateur and annoying.
The Deus ex machina ending to the story is disappointing and does not close all the loose ends that the plot and the final scenes build up to.
