Narrator was just okay. I HATED the main character- this author had a GREAT idea for a story, but every single one of her characters is unlikeable. The young mother is a self involved, selfish and unbelievable character. Seriously, what money scrimping mother leaves her child to a relatively full time nanny when she's not working AT ALL and goes off to do all sorts of silly self involved things while her one dimensional husband ostensibly hates her, and then is all of a sudden very supportive and understanding when it seems that she is mentally unstable? The little girl as opined by the narrator is whiny and obtrusive as well as one dimensional as well, and the little old lady landlord and super are in turns sinister and silly. Redeems itself somewhat at the end, but in a fairly predictable manner. Not a bad story- in fact, a good story, but perhaps a green (great idea, though!) writer who's editor should have stepped in a bit.
This is a truly creepy book. A good story and a surprise ending. You'll be checking your sheets every night for a while after reading this one.
I'm pretty much awesome!
It was a pretty enjoyable book to listen to. The performance was great. The story kind of lost me towards to the end. The bedbugs were real then or was she just imagining them? The ending was a little weird but overall the book was pretty good. As if bedbugs weren't creepy enough....
If you truly can stand creepy crawly references.
It was part woman losing her mind, part Murder Mystery and mostly gross bugs..
This is a strong book, you are either going to hate it or love it.
The reading by Elisabeth Rodgers was spot on.
The female perspective is strong in this book, she pulled it off perfectly
To many to mention, a good cast that all relied on each other
Bugs...everywhere ! In your throat, your ears.. Aiiieeeee
The narration was well done. You could just picture everything.
Starter House. It was so intense trying to figure out if the main characters are crazy and its all in their heads or if something is really happening to them.
When the exterminator came back and they realize too late that it's the old woman from downstairs.
The exterminator. She was such a zany, intense character. Can anyone really be that serious about eradicating bugs?
This was a fun read. I bought it on sale because it sounded kind of interesting. I didn't expect to like it as much as I did. There were parts when I didn't want to leave my car!
Creepy and itchy story that I could not stop listening . I enjoyed the book and the narration.
People who love horror stories.
Voice is OK. Her character voices were not great.
As someone who once stayed at a residence infested with bedbugs, I can say that bedbugs themselves are horrible enough. The supernatural theme was a bit much.
It was suspenseful from the beginning. I kept trying to figure out what was going to happen next.
Andrea - the landlady
This is the first book that I have read by E. Rogers. I was drawn to the title.
No. Just good listen
I have a fear of bed bugs and this book helped me take a step back and be entertained and not irrationally afraid, at least for a little while.
The description of the bugs themselves….
The bugs… they took on a personality of their own...
It was a good book in the vein of Rosemary's Baby.
