A reading funk plagued me the whole month of September. When my reading mojo finally returned in October I was able to finish a pile of books but enthusiasm for blogging didn't return at the same time. Of the sixteen books I read only four reviews found their way into print here. Sigh.
In an attempt to remedy this situation I've decided to write several short reviews of those past books and to stay current on my reviews for this month. Don't look for anything fancy but I'll do my best to give you my honest and candid impressions in a briefer than normal format.
This is the first audiobook I listened to on my iPod Touch. It was expertly performed by January LaVoy. She handled the cast of characters with ease and brought the Jazz-age lingo to life. Because I don't usually read the thriller/horror genre, I found myself on the edge of seat quite often. I even had to turn off the iPod a few times to allow my heart to settle down. My only criticism, which won't be a bad thing for most people, is the book is very obviously the first book in a series. The last chapter sets us up for more spine-tingling situations in book two and beyond.
Do I recommend The Diviners? Ab-so-toot-ly!
