Story was pretty thrilling but a little far fetched. Characters a little to macho and hard to believe. Action and fighting was like a Bruce Willis "Die Hard" movie. Was definitely gruesome in parts.
I just finished listening, and WOW! this book is great! It is a little on the gory side, but that just adds to the intensity of the story. AFRAID is a truly scary book, that tells an amazing story and just keeps getting better and better!! It will keep you hooked from the beginning to the very end, Very Highly Recommended!!!
needed a book to get me through the night and for the price and length this one did the trick- the narration was over the top which worked well for this book because the whole premise was over the top including the gore- if it was a movie it would be a solid b horror/action type film- it was by no means a classic, more like fun literary junk food- but the story line was cohesive,and even though you could pretty much guess the ending- it was suspense full enough to keep me going and the violence was new and creative as far as that stuff goes-
I'm a big fan of horror, sci-fi, dystopian, and post apocalyptic novels.
This story is chock full of gore. The story itself is kind of ridiculous, but if you like over-the-top violence, you'll like this book. Also, how can you not love a book that features both a human-like monkey and a loyal dog?
I will definitely read it again since this book is filled with so much information I'm sure I will enjoy it it different ways.
The suspense never let up, it constantly kept moving along with new surprises.
He was able to do at least 8 male and female voices very well.
Yes, many but I don't want to ruin the surprises!
People who do not like intense violence should not read this book!
Scary, Gory, Interesting
Probably. Book was much gorier than the previous book I had read. However, the story line was very interesting. Kept waiting for good to win out.
