Title: The Grave Digger
Author: Rebecca Bischoff
In 1875 Ohio, twelve-year-old Cap Cooper is an aspiring inventor—and a reluctant graverobber—enlisted by his father to help pay for his mother’s medical expenses. When one of the dead returns to life at his touch, Cap unearths a world of dark secrets that someone at the local medical school wants to keep buried. On the brink of discovery, he’ll have to use every ounce of cunning he has to protect those he loves most and save his own skin. The Grave Digger is an eerie mystery set in the aftermath of the Civil War, filled with action, friendship, and a hint of the paranormal, perfect for those who enjoy reading late into the night and long after the lights go out.
My rating: 🌟🌟🌟.5
This is my first try of listening to an audiobook from NetGalley. I honestly thought I won’t be able to listen to this because the app wasn’t working when I first tried. After about 2 updates, finally I was able to listen to this.
This is a middle grade story with a hint of mystery and thriller on it. We have Cap Cooper who was coerced by his father to do grave digging to earn money for his mother’s medical expenses.
The narration was okay and it kept me interested on the story. I think if I have ‘read’ this like my usual way (via ebook), it might have been a boring read for me.
The plot was simple and I kinda guessed who the villains are halfway through. It was an okay story but not that remarkable.
