    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book has taken its place in the pantheon of my favorite books, alongside Jane Eyre (Charlotte Bronte), The Pickwick Papers (Charles Dickens), Outlander (Diana Gabaldon), and The Quincunx (Charles Palliser). The story is complex and compelling, the characters are unique and complicated, and Edoardo Ballerini has turned in one of the most accomplished performances I have ever heard. Serious readers owe it to themselves to listen.

    Horror novelist Michael Anthony decides to move his family from New York City to the small Missouri town where he was raised by his eccentric grandmother. Moving into the old house left to him in her will, the Anthonys find something already residing in the walls, under the floors, and in the darkest corners.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I must vociferously disagree with the previous reviewers, which is unfortunate because I really wanted to like this book. The story is thin, the characters are caricatures, and the writing is hackneyed. To add insult to injury, the reader speaks in a monotone, pauses in odd places, and puts on a fake New York accent when he remembers that the characters are from the city. Perhaps this is juvenile literature and I missed the notice?
