Listener Opinions

    " i tried to read twice. no luck, just didn't like it. too bad, as the reviews are great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carla | 2/11/2014

    " If Douglas Adams wrote Lovecraft, it might turn out something like this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 2/6/2014

    " This plot is quite unique. If you like Dr Who, you will like this book. Imagine the world being taken over by an alien record archive firm and the world is saved by a file clerk turned secret agent and the Prince of Wales. I was impressed by the depth and breadth of the author's vocabulary which caused me to break out my dictionary a number of times. I would recommend this to anyone with strong imagination and love for fantasy and humor. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Catherine Siemann | 2/3/2014

    " It may have suffered from being read so close on the heels of its superior predecessor, The Somnambulist, but this book has a bit of a "what shall I do for my second act?" feel to it. It's a supernatural thriller that's loosely a sequel to The Somnambulist, but without the Victorian trappings, the patent absurdity comes to the surface more quickly, and thus it's hard to get too caught up in it. A fun read, but not up to the mark. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paula Hebert | 1/29/2014

    " this story has a lot of twists and turns, with a bizarre premise, that you don't understand until the middle of the book, and even then you're not sure where you're going. if you're a fan of "the Twilight Zone" or "Outer Limits", you'll enjoy this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Melara | 1/14/2014

    " Great book, well written with funny and well written characters and great surprises and plot twists. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eric | 1/13/2014

    " Fine, for having been picked up in the Harare airport. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 1/9/2014

    " Much Better than the previous book ( the Somnubulist. NOT THAT IT WASNT GOOD ). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 1/5/2014

    " I am having trouble deciding whether I really enjoyed this book or not. It is a very strange kind of science fiction. I wonder if the author's use of Leviathan as the evil in the book is an alegorical or metaphorical device? Stephen might find this book interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Keith | 10/9/2013

    " This could have been such a good book. It started out with all kind of weirdness and exciting characters. But nothing good was done with them. Other things were introduced seemingly for no reason at all. Disappointing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Liz | 8/18/2013

    " I am currently reading this. it's a little sci-fi, but I think there is a mystery in here somewhere. O.K. I have finished the book. Not a big fan, but then I don't read much fantasy. I did laugh because it was so absurd. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lesley | 3/23/2013

    " I really enjoyed the scene, the characters and the mystery behind the premise in this book... but I hated the ending! It was a patched up stupid idea. The beginning had such promise and intrigue to it, and then end was such a total disappointment that I'm embarrassed by my initial interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ali | 8/3/2012

    " Left me a little off-balance. I'm fairly certain it clamped onto my hand once I opened it and didn't let go... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ace | 1/10/2012

    " A better read that one might expect, and while its sometime unclear if its a peon or a paradody of the genre, its well written in either form. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison Buck | 1/10/2012

    " Lurid, dark, and beautifully-crafted. Bits of Lovecraft-via-Neil Gaiman - and an odd trace of Douglas Adams. I'm looking forward to reading the Somnambulist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kevin Farrell | 10/22/2011

    " It was OK and there were parts that I really loved. Eh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paris Krueger | 6/8/2011

    " A little too many brits, and a little too few dinosaurs. However the book itself is pretty well written, (For a brit). "

    " Lurid, dark, and beautifully-crafted. Bits of Lovecraft-via-Neil Gaiman - and an odd trace of Douglas Adams. I'm looking forward to reading the Somnambulist. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris | 4/2/2011

    " Fine, but nothing particularly enchanted or annoyed me either way. For this kind of throwaway stuff, Charles Stross' "Laundry" books are more fun, although this has some fancier verbiage. "

    " Good book, just left a lot unexplained and had a rather disappointing ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 12/9/2010

    " Really enjoyed this book. Not what I expected. Liked the blend of fantasy onto history and real locations. Will read more of Barnes' writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joshcane | 6/5/2010

    " The terrifying Hawker and Boon return. Forces within the House of Windsor clash with the Directorate over the fate of London and the pair, along with file clerk Henry Lamb may save the day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ali | 5/4/2010

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcia | 5/3/2010

    " I think I'd really give this a 3.5. It did actually have kind of an interesting twist at the end. I like this author and found the book genuinely entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 2/27/2010

    " Honestly I was expecting more. I think I was in the mood to be freaked out. Instead I was bored through most of it. I thought it was written well, but it just didn’t capture me. For me, none of the characters were likeable. I felt drained in the end. "
