I love my audiobooks! Great for traveling.
I guess it would be a Stephen because of the sci-fi element.
Each character narrated, you can feel the emotion.
I did not laugh or cry. It did make me think about the future of man; what does evolution have in store for us.
I usually listen to my audio books while I take my commute. There are very few that I actually listen to outside of my commute, i.e. at home relaxing. But this novel I found myself listening to before going to bed at night. I rated it 4/5 because there was one question that was unanswered or perhaps I missed. How everyone that came to Wayward was hit by a truck.
I got this book on the Deal of the Day and wasn't sure what to expect. The story is good and it definitely takes a plot twist you won't expect with a really great tie to civilization as a whole. Worth the read!!
This was a really good listen. It was well crafted and kept me guessing throughout. It had horror story overtones and would have made a great Twilight Zone movie. In fact, if this isn't put out as a movie, I will be surprised. Read it before Hollywood ruins it.
There are a few small faults, of course, and one is the thin explanation of the science and theories behind how Whispering Pines came to be. If you can get over that and accept it for the background it's meant to be, then you will enjoy this book.
Tell us about yourself! I am a retired senior who enjoys reading, literally and audibly. I play games on the computer (BFG) and Playstation
This is another bargain I tried, this is how I try other authors. This is a sitting on the edge of your seat read (audible). I found myself about half the way thru trying to figure out how it would end. There is so much action that it wore me out. I wondered is there no end to what the main character goes thru? I find that as of late I have been picking up many of this type of book, action, action and more action and not always getting anywhere.
I did enjoy the book and the performance. I was going to go on to the next book but found out there was going to be a series and opted for that instead. Don't get me wrong and gave it high marks, but I am 75 and need to balance some of my reading, listening.
Ask me no questions I will tell you no lies❤️
Yes, while I rated this book just okay I did listen to the whole thing, it was not to bad.
I have never listed to any of his books but since I found this book decent I would listen to another one in the future.
The narrator did not aggrevate me which is huge these days, so I enjoyed his reading style.
If you like books that have somewhat of the mystery factor and you can stand some small torture scenes you would like this book. The writer is not as intense as say Stephen King or Peter Straub so I liked that about this book. If you liked the book Shutter Island than this book while not as good is similiar.
In this book, hero wakes up in unknown place and tries to get back home. He is chased by all sorts of bad guys. Then he finds out "the truth". Just wasn't for me. I thought it might be like Shutter Island, which I enjoyed.
If you like obsessively descriptive authors then you would love this book. I hate it when writers are trying to add words for the sake of filling the book. It takes at least 4 hours for the book to take off. Now if it were a 25 hour book I would be ok with that, but it is an 8 and half hour book. The book is extremely dark and disparaging. I hated it! The only good thing about the listen was the narrator he did a great job!
Kneel Before Zod!!
I would recommend this to anyone looking foe something original with a twist, especially if they're fans of the twilight zone.
Really can't think of any book that compares at the moment.
When the man character is told the truth about the town he lives in.
yes,listened to it in 2 days.
I do not know?
It was just a series of strange occurrences that did not suck me into the story. The character did not behave in a fashion that would be expected given his circumstances. The end was a total blind side that came from nowhere.
Performance was acceptable
It started out strong and then quickly became like a broken record. Repeated "wierdness" with no advancement in plot or character development.
This book was not for me, although from the other reviews it seems that many people enjoyed it.
Writing reviews is work. Therefore, I need to be really happy or really unhappy with a book to write one.
Ok, it was only $4.95, but the few good parts are highly derivative; the bad parts (for example all the parts where the main character is confused; having flashbacks; or getting punched out or otherwise physically assaulted) are too long, repetitive, and just basically not very interesting. Kind of like in one of those movies that never really make it to a theater. I really tried, but after three hours I don't care about the cardboard main character or what may or may not be going on. So I'm returning it, but writing this review first because the last time I returned a book before writing a review I wasn't able to write the review because the book was no longer in my library.
