I don’t know how to describe this book. It was fantastic. I think the best way to appreciate this book is listening to the audio version. I usually am not great with audio versions because I have a set way I want to hear the characters but this was fantastic. It was so enjoyable. I look forward to hearing the podcasts soon about Night Vale. This is such a strange town. I would not want to live in this town but it is great to hear about. I especially could not live in a town where I could not go to the library. I hope there will be more Night Vale stories. I got the audio version from my local library after my son told me I should read it.
Welcome to Night Vale . . . a friendly desert community where mysterious lights pass overhead. In this ordinary little town where ghosts, angels, aliens, and government conspiracies are commonplace parts of everyday life, the lives of two women, with two mysteries, are about to converge.Like all of Night Vale, pawn shop proprietor Jackie Fierro abides by routine. But a crack appears when a mysterious man gives her a slip of paper marked by two words: KING CITY. Everything about the man unsettles her, especially the paper that she cannot remove from her hand. Yet when Jackie searches for the man, no one who meets him can seem to remember anything about him.Diane Crayton s fifteen-year-old son, Josh, is moody and a shape shifter. Lately, Diane has started to see the boy s father everywhere she goes, looking the same as he did the day the day he left. Josh is growing ever more curious about his estranged father leading to a disaster Diane can see coming, but is helpless to prevent.Propelled by two words KING CITY Diane s search to reconnect with her son and Jackie s search to reclaim her routine life draw them increasingly closer to one another, and to this place that may hold the key to their mysteries and their futures . . . if they can ever find it.Performed by Cecil Baldwin & Music by DisparitionGuest Starring Dylan Marron, Retta, Therese Plummer, and Dan Bittner”
