I loved all the twists and turns, especially the ending. It caught me totally by surprise. The suspense was quite palpable at times. The narrator did a great job with most of the characters. All in all, I strongly recommend this book.
I wanted to stop listening after one chapter but all the reviews were so glowing I thought it would improve. It didn't. The plot was ludicrous and only barely disguised with all the jumping back and forth in time. Uninspired characters, predictable plot twists and just plain drab dialogue, this book has it all. Even Grover's stentorian delivery can't lend any weight to this paper bag of a book.
This book was great. I was very surprised at the end, and it affected me more than books usually do, which is a good thing. Although sometimes I felt the conversations would drag out, the writing and performance were great. And the horrific shocking end made it completely worth the listen.
I loved this book. It was something I couldn't put down. I used audible to assist me during the times I couldn't read. I listened on the way to work and in the morning while getting ready. The narrator is one of the best so far and I will literally purchase books based on whether he is the narrator. As you know the narration can make or break the ability to hang in there listening. I can't say enough good things about this book including the audible version.
A truly frightening book. Unfortunately, I can see this story as a true story.
The narration was great. They story line was well written and I can "see" in my mind the events of the book. It's made me more observant of those kids my children associate with.
