Be careful what you wish for.
What would you do if you stumbled across a magic eight ball with all the answers? Would you ask it for the lottery numbers? Would you ask about the love of your life? That’s what Will Pearce did.
But as Will starts relying more on the eight ball to provide him with the answers that he seeks, he soon realizes that his magical gift comes with a heavy price.
Will is a supernatural thriller that leaves you wondering and asking yourself – what would I have done?
So wow! I have so many good things to say about this book.
It’s not very often that I find a book that I think about for hours after I finish reading it, but Will was definitely one of those.
Will is a boring run of the mill guy. He works the same job, living in his boring house, with his boring morning routine. He’s not a wild card. Never has been. So when he finds a magic eight ball in an odd shop one day, he doesn’t know what possesses him to buy it. At first, it’s a nostalgic piece of his childhood, but when it gives him the lottery numbers, he realizes that what he’s discovered isn’t an ordinary magic eight ball. It’s magic. Literally. As the requests begin to grow darker and darker, Will finds himself trapped in a situation that makes him realize there are worse things in life than being boring.
Every character in this book was super well flushed out, and I can’t get over how real Will felt as I was reading. His thoughts, actions, and dialogue was intriguing. There were a few times I found myself relating to him and laughing out loud. It’s not long that I connect to an MC like this, but with the writer’s smooth style it was easy. Oh, and not to mention that twist at the ending. I loved it!
Narration was absolutely wonderful. Every character had a different voice, and even the emotions of the MC were done in a professional manner.
This is probably the best audiobook I’ve listened to in a while, and that’s saying a lot since I listen to so many a year.
