My first impression of Joshua Jackson as the narrator was "Geez, this guy doesn't give a crap about reading this book, " and I almost turned it off. But folks, he's an actor*, a very good one, and he's ACTING. The main character is hurting, jaded, hating himself and the world more than a little.
* The actor Joshua Jackson is known for Fringe, The Affair, Little Fires Everywhere, Cruel Intentions, The Skulls, Dawson's Creek -- just a few highlights.
He's working with the FBI as a "psychic" so his every day work involves pretty much everyone making fun of him, trivializing his work, disparaging the Bureau for working with him. He's miserable. But he has a supernatural talent of being able to see the last few minutes of a person's life, and that leads to tracking down a diabolical killer... and when your work is trying to save lives, you drag yourself through the muck to get it done.
He hates his "powers" ... Every single case involves working closely with grieving family, and that's awkward, painful, soul-killing. His FBI partner ("his babysitter") is pretty sure she was assigned to him because she's a woman who speaks her mind, and is being shunted off to the side.
All in all it's a terrific crime thriller, not for the faint of heart, but an exciting binge. Thanks Audible!
I will be honest and admit that what originally caught my eye was the fact that Joshua Jackson was the narrator. Like most women my age, I spent time watching Dawson's Creek and was a huge Pacey fan. All that being said, Josh did a great job narrating the story and making you feel that Nate's gift wasn't all it was cracked up to be. I would gladly listen to other books narrated by Josh.
Oracle was a well-told story that always kept me guessing. There were many times where Nate believed he knew who the killer was only to discover that The Boneman had made it look that way. I was not expecting the ending and really enjoyed the twist. I would gladly read another Andrew Pyper thriller.
