Where does Horrorscopes: The Nephews rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I should've waited to announce my faves! I started putting them in order in other Horrorscopes reviews I've done, but this one - the 4th or 5th in the series that I listened to - is right up in the top three.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Loved them all. A bunch of old time fisherman from Maine with their accents? C'mon Ya gotta love 'em!
Which scene was your favorite?
No scene in particular. What I enjoyed most was the pitter-pat banter between the fellas. What a great job the cast did of solidifying a clearly long-time friendship of these guys. Busting chops (flank steak!!), calling each other out on misinformation, inside jokes, daring each other. So well done.
If you could rename Horrorscopes: The Nephews, what would you call it?
I really like the name as it is - it's misleading in a good way. But if I had to, I'd call it The Lighthouse. Kind of obvious but....
Any additional comments?
Another Horrorscopes performance masterpiece that made me think I was a patron at the end of a bar eavesdropping. The fluidity of the cast makes the conversation seem completely authentic - even though, as the listener who purchased the audiobook, you know they're working from a book/script. Very impressive to know that.
Also - great story. Rick Hautala created some wonderfully fleshed-out characters, put them in the middle of a mariners legend and said, "There you go, guys. Sink or swim? Your choice." Beautifully done.
