#Audiobook Review: The Squirrel on the Train by Kevin Hearne

Oberon's Meaty Mysteries: The Squirrel on the Train - Kevin Hearne, Kevin Hearne, Luke Daniels

Kevin Hearne is a mad genius for coming up with such hilarious and creative adventures for Oberon and his buddies. Having the mystery shared via his POV is masterful and so much fun. Even if don’t read the Iron Druid Chronicles, I think you would find Oberon enduring. But for those familiar with this extra special wolf hound, the story is amazing. 


The overall mystery is interesting and ties in some surprising aspects from Atticus’s past. I love how the hounds bring their own brand of sleuthing to the case, which truly wouldn’t have been solved without them. The humor is off the charts funny. But it’s Luke Daniel’s performance that makes this clever story an absolute joy! He has such unique voices for each character, developed and honed over the course of at least a dozen stories. I love that his character voices remain distinct and intact over the course of years. 


I found the audiobook of The Squirrel on the Train to be a breath of fresh air and the perfect answer to this cold and snowy day.
