Heather Graham has been on my list to read for some time now, ever since I started my A-Z Mystery Challenge. Though I like the paranormal aspect in movies and am admittedly, a huge fan of the TV show Ghost Hunters, I have yet to really find reading a book or paranormal series as exciting.
The Unholy was my first pick from Brilliance Audio to review and unfortunately, not the best first pick. But it was me entirely. I just don't think reading or listening to paranormal is my thing. So much of the scare of the unknown is visual for me. I am a horror movie junkie. Listening to the ghost of Humphrey Bogart (like in The Unholy) is not spooky. It's kind of cheesy. Sorry!
So, I did not enjoy listening to this and honestly, I don't think the reading of it would be better. The narrator was quite good for what he was working with, very noir feel, very theatrical. I just didn't get into the story.
I did not finish this one so I can not give it a full review. I am eager to review more Brilliance Audio titles and am a bit bummed out my first wasn't stellar. I think I need to stick to literary fiction or memoirs for listening or atleast stay away from campy thrillers.
Rating: Like I said, I did not finish and only listened to two discs so I can't give it a full "not recommended". The narrator was impressive as far as emotion and changing up the different characters but I just got a bit bored with the story.
Happy listening and as always, thanks for stopping by!
