Earphones Award Winner

Fiction • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Protecting the souls of the dead from the forces of darkness is a nasty job, but someone has to do it. Fisher Stevens’s narration of Moore’s novel about a reluctant Grim Reaper will have listeners rolling with laughter. As the book opens, the neurotic Charlie Asher—thrift-shop owner and self-proclaimed “beta male”—is visiting his wife at the hospital, where she’s just given birth to their daughter. But his world goes topsy-turvy when he finds his wife dead, with a mysterious old black man in a mint green suit standing over her. Stevens, the cynical, wisecracking Chuck Fishman in the CBS series “Early Edition,” is an ideal choice as narrator. He imbues the story (without embalming it) with a whiny wit that fits Charlie’s character, and he gives distinct personalities to a wide range of characters, human and otherwise. S.E.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
