Audiobook Complete: The Not Quite Reverend Cletus J. Diggs…

The title is quite a mouthful, but the book was entertaining.  Its classified as horror, which isn’t a genre I read much.  And it is current work, unlike much of the out-of-copyright material that I listen to.  It was (temporarily) available free at SimplyAudioBooks, and I’ll try just about anything for free.

I’m glad I downloaded it.  This story was full of entertaining characters and interesting plot, taking place in backwoods North Carolina.  The reader does very well with a variety of characters, voices and accents, and keeps it all moving along nicely.  There’s a surprise at the end, which reminded me a bit of some of Sharyn McCrumb’s “ballad” novels – and that’s almost enough of a hint to count as a spoiler, for those familiar with her work.

I’m likely to pull this one out again for a car trip.
