Listen and be transported to mysterious Vienna!

Would you consider the audio edition of City of Ghosts to be better than the print version?

I think the audio and print versions of this book are equally excellent!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot kept me engaged and I didn't want to pause at the end of each chapter! The mystery kept me guessing and I felt submerged in beautiful, historic Vienna.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene is when Jake first meets Anna. The author painted a beautiful scene in a Viennese cafe and set the tone for an intriguing plot. It made me want to learn more about the characters and their potential journey ahead.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book made me laugh at times. The author's sense of humor comes through, but the overall storyline is more serious and gripping. Why did the main character make the decisions he did? It's like a movie you watch and yell at the TV screen for the main character not to make a bad decision, but they do anyways and you're excited to see what lies ahead.

Any additional comments?

This is a fun audiobook - a great story and a great narrator. I really enjoyed it!

A thriller in Vienna... Yes please!

This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast. This was a good book to listen to. I wasn't engaged the entire time, the narrator put me off a bit, and the story wasn't as exciting as the summary had described. Worth a listen tho! The book filled out the vastness of Vienna, and described the character nicely! Can't wait to listen to more by this author!
