Compelling, scary, spooky
"The Haunting" which was made into a movie. Because it had a similar theme.
Scared to Death
An avid reader who cherishes my time with a good book!
This was my first book by Bentley so I wasn't sure what to expect. It was engaging, lots of neat and very creepy original elements but overall I thought the ending was a bit of a letdown. It is a little bit graphic in parts but it fit the overall tone of the book. It does seem a bit far reaching, even for a novel about the supernatural and I found there were a few plot lines that didn't exactly come together for me. I felt like I was looking for some closure at the end that I never really got. However if you are looking for a spooky tale, this should do it for you. Not your typical ghost story.
Happiness is a good book!
This book was very good. I do think it would have been just as good if not better if the sexual scenes weren't the most detailed things through out the whole book. Despite that, it was a great haunted house story. As for the narrator, decent for what he had to read. If language & sexual content is very rated R so listening out loud is a bad idea. Otherwise great!

The Haunting of Hell House. Same kind of story line, this one has a modern day twist.
He needs to work on his female voices.
See my three words above.
Normally, I have had trouble getting through Bentley Little's books. This one started slow, but built up speed and kept it there. I enjoyed this and made my husband check the bathroom for about a week. The narrator is not the worst I have heard, but not everyone can be Scott Brick. Any way, I did like this book. Once it got going, it kept you there till the end
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
Better books available.
It was fine.
Yes,because they would have to give it an explaining ending.
This book had great potential. It was like the author got tired of writing it and was lost for an ending. It needed a conclusion of the build up of facts. Could have been great because the story was intrigueing.
Anyone who would enjoy finding a hyperbolic political diatribe in the middle of what is presumably a ghost story. If I wanted the author's political opinions, I would hope to read them in an editorial - not a work of fiction.
No - I didn't bother finishing this one.
The narrator seemed fine.
I am a daily commuter, 1 hour each way. Audible rides shotgun with me every day. The time flies by when I am listening to a good book.
The first half was pretty good and set the atmosphere for a good scare. The part about James and the dirt was claustrophobic to say the least and very creepy. But then the story seemed to take a 180 degree turn and I found myself checking frequently to see how much time was left until the end. I felt like the author was beating me over the head with a political agenda and that added nothing to the story. Maybe the author was paid by the word or chapter. I hate to leave anything unfinished so I stuck it out but it was painful to complete. There were just too many sentences, paragraphs and chapters that seemed nothing but filler and wasted space. How do you spell relief? t-h-e-e-n-d!!!

The story was unbelievable. We are asked to believe a family with two teenages experience horrifying events almost immediately after purchasing a house do not share these experiences with each other; instead they decide to keep it to themselves. After many terrifying experiences, it isn't until Chapter 25 before one of the parents utters those magic words "we have to move!" Unlikely as it may seem, the teens are texting but the two parents (one a website developer the other an attorney) do not text; rather they use their cell phones to call each other. The ending was ridiculous and completely disappointing. I got the feeling the author got tired of writing the story and came up with a preposterous ending just to be done with it.
Annoying, monotone voice. Couldn't tell who was speaking because the character voices were nearly the same.
A few scary moments but truthfully too few to save the book
What a creepy story.Dan Butler had a shaky start with the narration but quickly got into it & was awesome.He was very suspenceful.The story was filled with things that gives you goose flesh,make you want to check under your OWN bed.I was enthralled through out & entertained.Bentley Little brought together today's realities with the unbelievabilty of the paranormal.Demons,ghosts,creepy sounds,horrific nightmares.Things moving & people missing.Bones found & faces seen on a misty mirror.A family torn apart,a whole neighborhood disrupted.I loved this book.For those who love the paranormal & the MOST creepy,this is an awesome story.Highly recommend:)
