I listened to Libertines first. The are not technically (as far as I could tell) a part of a series but could be. You do not have to read either to understand the short story of the other but the entire horns idea makes a statement in both. David Winograd comes back for this one and I just love (again) his take on this story. The inflections are so perfect! When a person should absolutely not be all excited and happy, they are. That’s the first sign to maybe something is not right. But it really is so much more than that. The inflections match the story and Charlie’s persona. I mean, who fantasizes about strangling their boss? Well… probably quite a few people! Which again is why this is so scary. It hits the truth behind humanity’s facades. What would you really wish for? I think this once again goes into that entire “be careful what you wish for” thing. And even in such a short story, some serious themes come out. Mainly the fact that again, humanity just is not nice. I actually really like Charlie. He’s a bit strange of course. And a bit of a hermit. I think that allows these thoughts to go even further and for him to progress into this archangel’s ideas. Really fun read! Again, dark but I’m learning that Grant Palmquist is great at the darker stories. Audio was so good that I cannot wait to listen to, or read, more of Grant’s stuff. I did enjoy the plot more of Libertines but it seems a bit more progressed. Audiobook provided for review by the narrator.
