Would you consider the audio edition of The Gargoyle Hunters to be better than the print version?
The audible edition of Mr. Gill's adventuresome tale frees you to multi-task and go about your day while keeping pace with his energetic thirteen year old hero. The author's passion for architecture and its elements comes through in his voice and expression as a boy encountering them for the first time. The boy's father salvages architectural elements and it is this dodgy activity that bonds them, but is in no way their salvation.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Gargoyle Hunters?
There are a number of Harold Lloyd moments. One when our hero, Griffin, in the middle of the night, at great height, is clinging to a spire in an attempt to harvest a gargoyle.
Have you listened to any of John Freeman Gill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This was the first performance of his that I've listened to. I can only compare it to other authors. He manages to convey the energy and enthusiasm of his thirteen year old hero consistently, start to finish. His delivery and annunciation are so professional that it's surprising that up until now he worked exclusively in print.
Who was the most memorable character of The Gargoyle Hunters and why?
Griffin is the most memorable and his sister Quigley is also memorable. These adolescents whose needs are barely met by their self-absorbed parents, manage to find their niches and mentors to hone their talents. Their survival is in their own hands.

A terrific read for anyone who loves New York and understands the beauty of preservation; filed with vivid descriptions and meaningful prose. A great coming-of-age story narrated by the author himself.
