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.
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 kept me entertained, although I must admit it strongly reminded me of an old episode of the X-Flies where Mulder and Scully investigate an incident in the deep south with an older lady and her inbred children. If you enjoy a fair amount of gore and some cheap thrills this book might be down your alley.
One of the stand out aspects of Endurance was the absolutely great narration by Christopher Lane. I wouldn't hesitate to listen to another story narrated by him.
I thought at first the narrator's voice was a little hard to get used to, given the country accent .. But as I kept listening I quickly came to Love it!! The narrator's voice gives such character to the characters & the different voices he does for each feels like your standing in a room full of people. It's amazing. I've already almost fully read this book on my Kindle years ago but had to get the audio book to listen to. Started from the beginning & I'm enjoying it so much. I have many of Kilborns Kindle books and he is in my top 5 authors!! Terrifying story to listen to in the dark, the voices get right to you.. Sometimes comical, but I think it gives such a great touch to this story! So glad I bought it!!
WARNING! If you are faint of heart or can't sit through any of the Wrong Turn movies then this book IS NOT for you. Seriously, this book is one of the creepiest books I have ever read/listened to. I finished this book within a 48 hour period. I would stop the recording, try to leave it alone, and end up picking it right back up again and pushing play. Just Amazing.
Everything about this audio book was fantabulous. :-D
As usual Jack Kilborn does not disappoint with his story or characters. All the appropriate giggles were included as well.
The narrator was fantabulous as well. Christopher Lane kept the narrators voice different than the others so you could always tell the difference. At first I didn't think I'd like his voice them as the story moved on I really came to luv it. He did a great job and I can only hope I can find another great book he narrates.
