Elisabeth Rodgers has a very nice voice as long as she is doing female parts or narration in her natural voice. Impersonating children, old ladies, and men, however, she's not so good. Her impersonations are so comically bad I feel like I'm listening to a Tina Fey skit. It totally took me out of the story.
As for the story, this is a perfect example of how much expectations can shape your enjoyment of a book. I bought this on a lark as Audible recommended a few offering that were supposed to be scary for the month of October. I was expecting it would be scary like a Stephen King novel, rather than banal and uneventful for 27 of the 30 chapters. Nothing scary happens until the very end, its just about a woman who is quite unscarrily losing her mind, and then in the end its revealed that some if it is more real than we had been led to believe for 27 chapters. ( I don't want to spoil it)
I would classify this a just a plain old novel that has a thriller ending, but certainly not "horror" or "scary," in the least. I might have given it another star or two if my expectations hasn't been so disappointingly incorrect.
