Follow the singer/songwriter of The Mountain Goats into a dark literary labyrinth, circling around trauma, social isolation, analog nerdery, dystopian survival, and family dynamics. He reads the audiobook himself, giving each phrase the cadence and breathing room it deserves.

Durham-ite John Darnielle's writing for his musical project, The Mountain Goats, has always been unique and riveting; his prose is no different. Storytelling comes second-nature to him, as many of his songs follow narratives, a skill that he has strengthened over time as evidenced by this outstanding piece of fiction. The audiobook is a MUST-listen, as his engaging voice not only immerses you into the troubled protagonist's unsteady state-of-mind, but also
lulls you into the dreamlike setting of the interjections highlighting the role-playing game scenarios. Key points and transitions are backed by unobtrusive, original musical compositions that enhance the narrative and reaffirm the haunted tone. And what about the story? I don't want to say much about the story, but this dark piece of realistic fiction involves a protagonist whose mail-away role playing game delivers some unimaginable unintended consequences.
