Would you try another book written by Poppy Z. Brite or narrated by Chris Patton?
The narrator gave an excellent performance, and I think Brite has a very descriptive and evocative writing style. I'd be tempted to try another story, but I didn't enjoy the narrative here quite as much as I thought I would.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Predictable, and unfortunately rather dull.
Do you think Lost Souls needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
No -- the ending seemed to comfortably (though very conveniently) round things up.
Any additional comments?
I may have come to this book too late. It was full of graphic and gratuitous sex scenes, to the point that they became annoying and largely irrelevant.

This was my first exposure to Poppy Z Brite, actually. I'd previously avoided her out of a desire to avoid the cliches. But sometimes, cliches exist for a reason. Poppy Z Brite is like chocolate and absinthe for breakfast. Her work is dark and decadent and delicious. Chris Patton's reading was entirely competent and his voice is well suited for the teenagers in this story. I've already listened to this twice and I expect to listen to it again in the future. I only hope Audible acquires more work by Poppy Z Brite.

So glad there is finally some Poppy Z. Brite on audible. Entertaining, edgy and visceral. Great read.
