Not only was this an absolute amazing story, it was also a brilliant audiobook. I loved listening to Jesse Eisenberg tell this tale. I've never really had any feelings either way for Jesse as an actor, but Jesse as a reader... I highly enjoyed it.
This book has a lot going for it. One, the unique world of curse work. While you have read plenty of other books with mob characters or con artists, I have yet to come across another with anything close to a curse worker. And it's all the better for it. I loved getting to know the different possibilities of talents that curse workers can hold and seeing how the 'blow back' can effect them. I'm not going to lie, the blow back was probably one of my favorite parts about this book because while these guys have some amazing talents, they don't come free (like they might in another book).
What an incredible mystery! The audiobook kept me glued to my laptop/mp3 player until I had listened to the whole thing. It was suspenseful and completely captivating. I loved the characters and I loved how the author led false clues around (at least, I'm assuming she did) about the who or what because I thought I had it all figured out a time or two only to be proven wrong.
White Cat was just brilliant. I highly recommend this book, but more so the audiobook. I don't know what took me so long to finally read this book... but I am so glad that I finally got around to getting into this series.
