Narration was very well done. The book became too horror filled for me to listen to and drive.
If you like horror this might be for you. Creeepy!
This is one of the scariest books I have listened to in a long while! Living in the country and working the late shift, I was running to my house when I got home from work! I've always loved reading horror and am no stranger to the thing under the stairs and this book was great fun!
I'm only about 2 hours into this story but I have had to stop listening. Although the story is creepy and scary (that's a good thing!) it provides some very graphic and disturbing scenes. I will delete this from my library and hope that the nasty images can be deleted from my memory.
I suppose I didn't realize this was a Horror book. For me, more of a story and less horror, would have improved this book. I couldn't even complete it. The horror wasn't suspenseful or well written at all. It was immature and gratuitous and seemed more in line with what a 15 year old boy would write.
Horrific, requires endurance, non-stop listening!
The voices of Christopher Lane. The insanely morbid imagination of Jack Kilborn.
All of Christopher Lane's performances are incredible! I look for his name first and then to see if I want to listen to the book. A book can be ruined if you don't like the performance of the narrator.
I'm not sure i Would Listen to it again because i don't typically do the read/listen thing twice.
He brings the west Virginia country sound to it and i would have a hard time building the characters voices, and there are many! It took me some time to get used to the country sounding voices but he did a great job holding characters to their unique voices.
Good Listen and story. If your not used to the country twang it takes a bit to get used to but the twang helps place you in the West Virginia mountains. Creepy place! :)
Again King provides us with a group of boys that break your heart, I didn't want the story to end and silly as is sounds, I missed these guys when the story was over. This is one of his better non-horror stories with a plot that turned my stomach into knots each time the characters crossed another hurtle.
I have to say that this was the most gross, gory, disgustingly sick book I've ever read or heard. Yes.... I listened to the whole thing - to see where the author would go next. When I read the review, it sounded like an interesting storyline and the first chapter or two drew me in - people missing in the woods and a scary motel. But the sick, bloody ideas that this author created makes me actually wonder about him - how can an author even come up with this? Without telling too much about the actual story - it's totally far-fetched & unbelievable. The author relies on gore to create a 'story'. The narrator turned out to be just the right person to read this type of book - his voice is creepy and sounds like a back-hills sociopath. If you like blood & guts, are on the border of being a serial killer yourself and like to look at bloody accident scenes, then this book is for you.
This story was one of the friehtening but, possible stories about the backwoods I've heard in a long time.
Yes! I would deffinately recommend this book to my friends that are into terror/horror.
You know those stupid movies that you watch, scratch your head & say "well there's 2 hrs of my life wasted"? That's how I felt and I only listened to 30 mins. of this ridiculous book. It is SOOO predictable and one big backwoods cliche! Don't waste your money like I did - next..........
