This is not my usual genre, but I enjoyed the story mainly because of the narrator
who did such an outstanding job on several of Carl Hiassen's books. There is way too much information for me on all things supernatural and cremation, but the narration moves along at a rapid pace which kept my interest. I did try reading this on kindle and couldn't finish the sample, but the narrator really hooked me on finding out where this was going.
The action is told through multiple characters -- some more believable than others, but all totally interesting. Who can resist kids, dogs and hot romance? The plot seems somewhat contrived and, although often gruesome, still entertaining, and a good listen.
Would you try another book from Stephen Dobyns and/or George Newbern?
Has The Burn Palace turned you off from other books in this genre?
I don't think so.
What three words best describe George Newbern’s voice?
No issues with the narrator's voice.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
It was a good idea for a story and well written, just hard to follow.
Any additional comments?
I was looking forward to this book and was pretty disappointed. I just found it very hard to follow in the audio format. The story is told through dozens of characters in this town which is a cool idea. In the audio format though, I had a lot of trouble keeping up with the story, recalling who each character was, etc; I think this is a book I may have enjoyed more reading the hard copy where you could flip back if needed.
