Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Soulless (Parasol Protectorate #1 - Audio Edition)

Soulless - Gail Carriger,  Emily Gray

I started out listening to this book at the recommendation of a fellow GR member in one of my groups.

 

I can't recommend this book in audio version highly enough. Emily Gray is outstanding. She brings every one of these characters alive and manages even to make the men sound like men without sounding the least bit silly or diminishing their characters even a little bit. She made this book come alive for me to such an extent I'm actually hesitant to *read* the second one in paperback. I'd much rather listen to the audio, and I have never said *that* before.

 

As for the story, well, I just truly enjoyed it - the dry wit throughout the book had me chuckling constantly (I'm sure I was the only one smiling and laughing during rush hour traffic!) while the plot itself was delightfully creepy, with an ending that had me cringing and laughing at the same time. An excellent start and whether I read or listen, I can't wait to dive into the next book.
