    Charlie Walker doesn't believe in God or the supernatural. But Charlie's views change when he takes the biggest risk of his life---he quits his job to write the novel he's always wanted to write. The problem is that Charlie is a method writer. Since he's writing horror, he needs to experience horror. Charlie begins to dabble with the supernatural and experiences the paranormal around his house. Messages appear on mirrors, furniture moves, and his kids start seeing things.

    Would you try another book from Rob Stennett and/or Adam Black?

    I might try another book from this author, but I'd probably choose something else first.


    If you???ve listened to books by Rob Stennett before, how does this one compare?

    This is the first book I have listened to by this author.


    Which character ??? as performed by Adam Black ??? was your favorite?

    Mr. black is a good narrator. He did his job well, which means all of my focus was on the book and its characters rather than on his style.


    Do you think Homemade Haunting needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, I don't think this book makes a good seed for a series.


    Any additional comments?

    There were things I liked about the story. The author illustrated common understanding among many Christians about how the spirit world works, while also poking a little fun at some of the more radical approaches to dealing with it. Overall though, I found the story line a bit simplistic, It's themes and imagery might have come an illustrative book on how to write a cheap horror novel. If I were to recommend it, it would be to Christian parents who want to warn their sufficiently mature children of the dangers of dabbling in the occult in a non-threatening way.
