What the Critics Say

"I really did love this tale. It reminded me of Lemoney Snicket and The Spiderwick Chronicles with the detail of a Neil Gaimen novel. It has all the aspects to become the next great classic."((Greta) Paranormal Wastelands Book Reviews)
"This novel has a little something for everyone, and I feel like this adventure story and the writing style are similar to that of Tolkien and Lemony Snicket." (A Book Vacation Book Reviews)

This is one of the most unique stories

This is one of the most unique stories I have listened to for a while, and it get marks for that. Imagine a parallel dimension where all of the typical horror story "badguys" are the regular folk, and that you might have a double there too.

The only way to get to this other world is through magical doorways that no one ever know where there will appear in either world. Allowing for travel back and forth. Hence where the real world vampires, werewolves and the like came from.

This was a story of Jack Black a young man who walks through a doorway and goes to the other world. Meeting up with friendly vampires and werewolves. That finds himself on a mission to save the double of someone he loves. All the while fighting off the evil zombies and other creatures of the night.

For me there were too many characters to keep track of. Making it difficult for me to keep attention. While it was full of adventure, it wasn't quite for me.

There is adventure, blood and gore, fantastical characters, that will bring you back to your younger years. When you had unimaginable friendships with non-human beings. So, if you are looking for something new and different in the fantasy world, Doorways: A Book of Vampires, Werewolves, & Black Magic is sure to be right up your alley.

Fred Wolinsky did what he could with this one. He really tried to create unique sounding characters, I do appreciate that, but there were just too many.

He was able to inject real emotion into his performance, truly making the sinister characters sound as evil as he could. There were some points were I had to rewind because I couldn't catch what he was saying. While simultaneously keeping Jack Black sounding young and innocent.

Based on the performance I will be looking for more from Wolinsky. I think he might do better with fewer characters. And a more straight forward storyline.

Pure magic!

What made the experience of listening to Doorways the most enjoyable?

The author, Tim O’Rourke, has an amazing imagination, the story is magical and contains every creature imaginable, from vampires, witches, sorcerers, werewolves and some unimaginable ones too.


Have you listened to any of Fred Wolinsky’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the best narration I have heard so far by the talented Fred Wolinsky who brings all of Tim’s characters wonderfully to life- no mean feat!


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Simply magical!


Any additional comments?

This is a great adventure for young adults, or even adults, who are young at heart. For me it is comparable to The Lord of The Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia. If you love fantasy, adventure and pure escapism, combined with a good story, then this is the book for you. I can’t wait to listen to the continuation of their adventures in book 2.
