What made the experience of listening to Reviver the most enjoyable?
The subject matter was very intriguing - reaching out to those beyond the grave and actually making contact.
What did you like best about this story?
This was a very original approach to a story that concerns itself with communicating with the dead and solving mysteries. There are to some extent stories within stories.
Which character – as performed by Ari Fliakos – was your favorite?
I liked the main character, Jonah. He was the main reviver in the novel. Revivers, of course, temporarily revive the dead to either give family members a chance to say good-bye or for police to learn who killed them.
If you could take any character from Reviver out to dinner, who would it be and why?
I want to query Jonah. What does it feel like to be a reviver? Can you teach me to do it? ETC. . .
Any additional comments?
I enjoyed the book, but I think I would have liked it more if they had kept more to the theme of crime solving and families. The whole storyline of torturing the dead went a bit far afield for me. That should have been book number 2 and more developed. Otherwise, I liked it and would read more on this theme.

I enjoyed this story. An original idea. Very interesting. I will certainly be on the lookout for the other books in the series.
The narration was generally good and the characters well read. But, the appalling, terrible attempt at a Northern Irish accent just kept pulling me out. What was that? More like Scottish, West Country, with a bit of god know what else thrown in. If narrators can't do accents properly, then don't narrate a story! Get someone else to do it. Given that the character Never played an important part in the book, this was a constant distraction. I nearly gave up because of this.
However, I'm glad I didn't after all, because the ending certainly leaves you wanting more.
