I would absolutely recommend this book to any of my friends who love suspense.
The fact that it spanned so much of the main character's life. You really got invested in her story and I was actually sad to be finished with it. I wanted more.
Her voice inflection, tone, EVERYTHING.
Probably Victoria, just to probe her mind and find out everything she's seen and experienced.
The dilemma of a review is in judging the quality of a book that isn't of a genre that appeals to you. this may be the novel of the century. I'm going to return it.
Kate delivered a clear, well-modulated reading.
When the book started, I thought I had gotten a hold of a collection of oddly related short stories. I'm not a big fan of short stories or essays. Just about the time I about to give up on it, it became a thriller! I have always been a fan of Nosferatu (if you've never seen or heard of Nosferatu, check it out) and was immediately drawn to the title. I knew or at least hoped I was in for some Stephen Kingesque, gut level apprehension - dare I say fear?
The book is excellent, fast paced for nearly 20 hours, well written, with characters that you (mostly) want to know personally. I am a tiny bit sorry that I neglected a few things (and people) due to my deep engrossment in NOS4AT2.
Read & enjoy!

I think this book was psychic heavy and little disturbing - have I know the genre of this book I would not have read it. But once I started reading I could not stop it kept me on my toes...
If you like horror movies and spooky stories I'd recommend this book.
It isn't often I come across a book I don't like, but this is definitely one of them. I got about three hours into it before giving up entirely. The characters either bored me or were utterly unlikable, the plot moved so slowly that I gave serious thought to simply skipping ahead just to reach some kind of development, and by the time I gave up listening the narrator's voice was grating on my nerves. Normally the sort of book that's right up my alley, I was sorely disappointed.
Ms. Mulgrew's performance!

I have not. I should fix this!
Wayne, because of his strong resolve
Very enjoyable listen. Joe Hill rambled a lot in the second half, unfortunately, which took away from the creepy spookiness for a lot of it, but the end gets good
a better reader. She had two voices both sounded like Jerry Lewis on a bad day
With heavy editing this could have been an okay story. But it was totally ruined by the performance. The voice was at best annoying.
the voice and she gives to the different people in this book is amazing. You wonder if the other actually had these kind of voices in mind when he was writing these characters and writing their dialogue.
This Book is pretty amazing though. It does to Christmas what Jaws did to the water.
