Nothing like the first one. A solid disappointment

Within the first 10 minutes of the first episode, you are inundated with noises and sound effects that are overwhelming. It makes it difficult to follow along. I also needed to keep fiddling with the volume because some of the sound effects are so harsh on the ears but the voices are quiet.

The introduction of an entire cast is disappointing. I had high hopes a cast would make the story more dynamic, but the voice acting is just not as good as Joshua Jackson's narration of the first book. It really takes away from the suspense we felt in the first book.

The story line of Oracle 2 is for lack of a better term, a hot mess.
Without giving too much away, more supernatural entities are introduced in this story. It all feels very jammed together, as if the author tried to throw too many ideas together. The dynamic between our main characters is disappointing. With the ending of the first book, one could expect that there would be more character development within our main trio, and there is some, but it feels forced.

The bone man who has haunted Nate Russo, and is the reason for his abilities, really feels like an afterthought in the story. As if the author forgot about him and went back in afterwards and sprinkled a few mentions.

Overall, the second installation of The Oracle feels as if the writer, high off the success of the first installment went all in, rushing creation of a fluid and creative story. Combining this with the overproduction of the audio book and completely changing the listeners experience from the first book- The Oracle 2, like Icarus, flew too close to the sun and crashed and burned.

If you were a fan of the first Oracle installment, you may want to skip out in The Oracle 2 as you might find the differences to be quite unpleasant.

Epic again

It’s like an audio play. Epic performance.

My only complaint is that you can’t download it. So we had to use our cellular data to listen on our road trip and it would stop when we had no signal.

The podcast format is not listenable

I started it and liked it but there is no way to listen to it except on your phone and you need to download one chapter at a time. I wish they would release the entire series edited together as an audiobook.

The first time I tried to listen in the shower on my Echo Dot or in the living room on my Echo Show and it wouldn't play, I switched to an audiobook. I tried to listen in my car and it reached but end of the chapter, I was forced to wait until the end of my trip to download the next chapter. I switched back to my audiobook.

The story was fine but the podcast format and limitations are untenable. Binned it.

Loved it

I liked the first Oracle but LOVE the second. The story was interesting and a great follow up to the second. The narrators did a great job and I enjoyed the sound effects. I really hope there's an Oracle 3 in the future!
