I downloaded this just before trip to see family in New Zealand. The holiday been amazing and this book has just added value to a lazy 2 days. It strikes me as a cross between Stephen King's The Shining and John Carpenter's The Thing. Very clever, suspenseful and with not a little philosophy about a meaningful life. The characters came across well especially towards the climax and the setting well researched and believable. The narrator is also extremely good. Managed to get the tension across with the right pace and emphasis. All in all one of the best listens I have had.

This is an untidy story more in the paranormal fantasy realm than adventure. I think I was expecting more of the latter than the former. There is suspense and some action but there’s also a lot of repetition that should have been edited out that made the story longer than necessary. The plot is unique and held my interest though the telling wasn't as crisp as it could have been. The narration was fine.

This is so well written, it's refreshing. Don't know anything about the author, but he's good. The narration is wonderful. Touching in parts, very scary in others. Human nature at its best and worst. Left me with some plot questions but that didn't seem to matter in the end. Wonderful look at the many facets of each life and the mystery of our existence. Going to go see if MacLeod has anything else out there.
