This was a great listen. It really made me feel for the young characters. My only problem was that it built up the whole story and then sort of came to a quick end. Like this author.
What a trip! I don't want to look at any kind of worm for quite some time.
The story was ok but it wasn't the best written. The performance was good. To me it felt like the story became tedious in certain spots.
Really well done. Fun and wild. I felt tense while listening and thats a good thing.
For the third time I tried listening to this book and I just couldn't make it. This book is so slow it's brutal. This third time I really tried to let it play out but I just couldn't make it. Basically its a story about a woman and her struggles to make it work after her husband is killed.Then she meets a guy through and elderly woman. They get married. blah blah blah.
For the people who thought this was just a slapstick comedy book probably didn't get past the first chapter or two. At first I was kind of turned off from the comedy because it seemed a little much but as the story quickly develops it turns from humor to intense with a good natured laugh or thought here and there.
The story was read by Sean Runnette and his voice turned me off for a while until he grew on me. His voice reminds me of the actor Richard Kind a little bit and that threw me for a loop. It grew on me and I didn't even pay attention the story was so good.
About a third of the way into the second book and can't stop listening.
This book was really good. The only problem I had is it left some of the mysteries unsolved. Such as what was the deal with the children and what happened to them? Its not a big part of the story so no spoilers but I just wanted that wrapped up. Very good story and didn't take long for things to start going bad for our heroes.
Its up there. The story was creepy and twisted all the way through. Just how I like them.
Picturing "Bub" speaking for the first time would give me the chills.
Did a really good job with different characters. I was never confused about who was speaking.
Hang on to your shorts... and bring an extra pair!
This story was fast paced and kept me listening all throughout. Looking into the different characters' past was quick and insightful without taking you away from the story. Author and narrator had me freaked on what was coming next. Putting myself in the same situation as the main character I could see the same reactions. I would highly recommend. I didn't know what to expect and was delivered a gem.
This story was good but to me the parts that really had me interested were rushed through. I thought the crew was really going to get into some long term good action and investigation when they entered the cavern but to me it fell flat. It seemed like an Indiana Jones book with about half the action. In my opinion the story fell kind of flat about 3/4 of the way though. I would recommend a listen just don't have expectations so high as I did to not disapoint. One question I never did get the answer to is: What did the markings on the back of the cross mean? Anyone?
Wonderful book. It was a little slow getting into some things but for the most part I couldn't stop listening. Some moments had me so tense I couldn't stand it. Great new story and I can't wait for the next book. The ending had me scrambling to see if the next book was available.Great job Ilsa!
