Good story but not terribly original, but fun nonetheless.
Read by Boyd Gaines
Approximately 3 hours
I heard Vespers as an abridged audiobook and I will talk about that aspect at the end.
If you saw any of Hollywood's animal disaster B movies (Giant ants, snakes, bugs, etc. that attack humanity) than you get the idea behind this book. Normally placid bats are attacking people and gathering in a murderous swarm above New York City. Meanwhile, something else - something very large - is killing people in the subway tunnels. Will the animal expert and the rough cop be able to save the day?
Even though the plot is formulaic, I still found myself wanting to know what happened next. I couldn't wait to pop the tape in the player as soon as I got in the car!
I rate this audiobook 4 stars out of 5.
