Beschreibung

In a room above a bizarre German museum, and far from the prying eyes of strangers, lives the Old Man. Caretaker of the museum by day, by night he enjoys the sound of silence, broken by the occasional crunch of a spider between his blackened teeth. Little Hands Clapping brings together the Old Man with the respectable Doctor Ernst Frohlicher, his greedy dog Hans, and a cast of grotesque and hilarious townsfolk, all of whose lives are thrown together as the town uncovers a crime so outrageous that it will shock the world.
From its sinister opening to its explosive denouement, Little Hands Clapping blends lavishly entertaining storytelling with Rhodes's macabre imagination, entrancing originality, and magical touch.

Kritikerstimmen

"Oh, how we love Dan Rhodes. Reliably odd but fabulous." (Guardian)
"Dan Rhodes is totally sick and brilliant in all the right ways. He sucks you into his world and before you know it, you're willingly trapped. So very smart. I loved it." (Douglas Coupland)
"Dan Rhodes has deservedly made a name for himself as an assured comic stylist. Little Hands Clapping is an amusing fable about thwarted altruism and good intentions gone askew. It should please cynical idealists and idealistic cynics alike." (Financial Times)
"Suicide museum horror meets Gabriel Garcia Marquez romance, welcome to the weird and wonderful world of Dan Rhodes." (John O'Connell, Waterstone's Books Quarterly)

This is not the best of the audiobooks I have written. Very boring and bad narration. My two cents. Don't go for it. Peace out
