Coming off of an audio that dealt with the Holocaust, I needed my next read to be something light. Matt Godfrey performing this old favorite of mine was the perfect solution!
Written back in the late 80’s, The Drive-In is just plain horror fun. Sure, there’s a bit of commentary in there, if you want to give the story some depth, but there’s plenty of horrific gore, insane circumstances and a big bunch of Lansdale’s brand of humor to round it all out.
What happens to people in dire circumstances is brought out into the light and examined from all different angles. Imagine if you will, a huge drive-in with 6 different screens and nearly 4,000 cars. Then imagine that everything goes black, (except for the movies), and no one can leave. For months. How long will the food last? What will people do when no more popcorn is left? You’ll have to read this to find out!
Joe R. Lansdale is a go-to author for me, and I’m thankful that I have a lot more of his work to catch up with. Matt Godfrey is one of the very first narrators I got to know when I started on my audio adventures and he remains one of my favorites. Together, these two make an unbeatable team! If you’re looking for something to fill out your October reading, I highly recommend the audio of The Drive-In!
