It Devours!: A Welcome to Night Vale Novel
It Devours!: A Welcome to Night Vale Novel | Joseph Fink, Jeffrey Cranor
From the authors of the New York Times bestselling novel Welcome to Night Vale and the creators of the #1 international podcast of the same name, comes a mystery exploring the intersections of faith and science, the growing relationship between two young people who want desperately to trust each other, and the terrifying, toothy power of the Smiling God.Nilanjana Sikdar is an outsider to the town of Night Vale. Working for Carlos, the town's top scientist, she relies on fact and logic as her guiding principles. But all of that is put into question when Carlos gives her a special assignment investigating a mysterious rumbling in the desert wasteland outside of town. This investigation leads her to the Joyous Congregation of the Smiling God, and to Darryl, one of its most committed members. Caught between her beliefs in the ultimate power of science and her growing attraction to Darryl, she begins to suspect the Congregation is planning a ritual that could threaten the lives of everyone in town. Nilanjana and Darryl must search for common ground between their very different world views as they are faced with the Congregation's darkest and most terrible secret.

The second Night Vale book was as fun as the first. If you enjoy quirky horror comedy, this is a good pick even if you haven't heard the #podcast (it is much more fun if you have, though). #science #religion #parallelworld #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtcharacter

I loved this audiobook read by none other than Cecil Baldwin and to be honest, I was better for it. Since I read the predecessor myself I knew that the voice is what really makes the book and Cecil reading this sold me on it in a way that the book might have wavered. A solid 4 ⭐

I was hoping to be able to finish my ebook (tagged), but he tuckered himself out playing that cat fishing game for cats. I don't want to risk waking the beast.

Whenever I'm on my tablet he paws at it wanting to play with it. I've created a monster.

Book 41 of the year, finished May 25, audio

I enjoyed this one a lot more than the first in the series.

It describes the relationship between a devout religious man and a scientist woman and how they together defeat The Smiling God. Or do they?

This hovered between a pick and so-so, but I ended up giving a pick because of Night Vale's overall entertaining weirdness. I think this would have worked better for me as an audiobook, read like the podcasts I've enjoyed before. 3 💥💥💥 out of 5

Man alive I love the WTNV folk. I enjoyed the first novel a little better, perhaps, but this one was delightful.
If you‘re unfamiliar, the pod cast is a fun, sweet, creepy fictional community radio program from a desert town that is never boring.
The drawing out of the ending is totally within the way the Night Vale world works but I feel they‘ve done it more elegantly in live shows and on the pod cast.

jmofo I forgot! I had this as a part of my #SFFTBR challenge as a “my choice”!! 12mo
jmofo @Cinfhen I, as you can tell, have a lot of love for Night Vale. I haven‘t listened in a bit, though. I‘ve gone to two live shows and I really adored the first book. Cecil is amazing in his range, so I recommend listening over reading. 💜 12mo

Third book down for #24B4Monday! I am extremely unlikely to make it anywhere near 24 hours, but at least this is motivating me to get some books finished.

I liked parts of this book: the Carlos parts. Especially the Cecil and Carlos parts. The rest… 🤷🏻‍♀️ Not really interesting or satisfying. I‘ll probably give the next Night Vale book, if there is one, a miss.

monalyisha Bummer! I enjoyed (listening to) the first one (on audio)! 1y
Clare-Dragonfly @monalyisha I switched to audio partway through. Even Cecil‘s dulcet tones couldn‘t save it for me 😅 But if you liked the first one, maybe you‘ll like this one, too! I thought the first was just okay. 1y
TieDyeDude Good to know. I've given up on the podcast, glad I didn't spend time on this book. 1y
Clare-Dragonfly @TieDyeDude Yeah, if you don‘t like the podcast, probably don‘t bother with the books. 1y
TieDyeDude @Clare-Dragonfly I liked it until recently. I began losing interest after episode 100 or so, stopped listening a couple months ago. The first book was very forgettable IMO. 1y

We don‘t have many plans this weekend, and I realized I‘ve only finished one book this month, so I think I will join in one of these readathons for the first time! I doubt I will manage #24B4Monday, but I can try. At least it may motivate me to listen to more of my audiobook.

TheReadingMermaid Motivation is key. That's why I do these readathons the last weekend of every month. That way we can finish up our monthly TBR stack 😉 1y

I think maybe I should switch to the audiobook for this. My library has it through Overdrive but I‘ve never listened to an electronic audiobook before. What‘s the best way to go about it? And has anyone else listened to the audio? I think it will work much better with Cecil narrating.

Crewgurl You can listen to it right in the overdrive app 😊 1y

I wish non-cluster-B people would just TRY to write fiction about cults without deciding that any malevolent, large-scale manipulator must be a "ps*chopath" or "s*ciopath," i.e. someone like me. It gets old, them trying to pawn their own capacity for evil off on us.

Nilanjana is a scientist who works in Carlos's lab. She winds up investigating a weird series of events around town where places and people appear to be swallowed by huge pits. It leads to the Church of the Smiling God where she begins a relationship with Daryll Ramirez. Soon she has to decide if he is on her side or up to something sinister. She also has to decide to save the town. Fun tale of the weird with some laugh out loud moments. #MountTBR

Featuring angels who aren‘t angels, disappearing pizza places, and the Joyous Congregation of the Smiling God, this book is a wild ride. Equally zany and heartfelt, this book is perfect for people looking to read something different. Also, some dude on Goodreads was whining that this book was anti-male and heterophobic and now I just want all of y‘all to read this book and love this book just to spite him 😝

Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor are great narrators and this novel is a fun trip into the world of Night Vale. I love the little jokes that show that the world of Night Vale is not our own. But in the end, while the world is so unlike our own, the people in it are all too human. And that‘s a very interesting take on this world.
