The Dan Diaries is the fourth book in The Beyond Series by D.D. Marx. Dan Sullivan had a great life with a good job and Olivia as his best friend whom he knew he could count on. But just like all good things, his life came to a sudden end. In his eternal life, he is a guardian angel and his best friend is his first ward. He needs to help Olivia fulfill her destiny and make sure she is happy. However, it is not easy, especially considering Olivia keeps on going off track and is not on the path she needs to be. Dan is doing his best to give her little nudges in the right direction, but it is not enough. Can Dan find a way to make Olivia believe he hasn’t left her alone and will help her find the happiness she deserves?
Daniel James Lewis’s narration in this audiobook was incredibly well-paced and soothing. He allowed me to have reactions, to be invested and be interested in Dan’s life (or afterlife). His tone and cadence were actually very refreshing; he used his voice beautifully and lured me in. I knew when some action was coming because Daniel’s voice told me so. He painted pictures in my mind and made it easier for me to understand what was going on and how it was all unfolding.
I am not even surprised by this series anymore. D. D. Marx is a magician with words; she knows how to bring the story to life, how to make the reader crave more and how to make sure you are right there with her characters. Dan is a beloved character from the Beyond Series. I loved how he was almost an entity in the previous novels and now we have him smack in the middle of all the action. Dan’s perspective is very interesting; he is charming, hilarious and very observant. I love D. D. Marx’s narrative style; she breathes life in her stories and makes you fall in love with them. Needless to say, I enjoyed this story and I loved Dan’s reactions. It was hilarious, emotional and endearing at the same time.
