    The bed and breakfast was hidden in the hills of West Virginia. Wary guests wondered how it could stay in business at such a creepy, remote location, especially with its bizarre, presidential decor and eccentric proprietor. With the event hotel for the national Iron Woman triathlon accidentally overbooked, competitor Maria was forced to stay at the Rushmore. But after checking into her room, she quickly realized she wasn't alone....

    This fast-paced thriller is deliciously gory! Narrator Christoper Lee is amazing and gives an all-out performance. There are a wide variety of characters, from the Katherine Hepburn-esque grandmother to cleft-palate mutants and he makes them all come alive.

    What disappointed you about The Presence?

    I managed to listen to the whole thing, but I found myself wishing it would be over about halfway through.


    What was most disappointing about John Saul’s story?

    This was not, as implied, a supernatural story and I still have no idea what the titular "presence" was supposed to have been. Rather it was an awful attempt at a medical thriller a la Michael Crichton. Characters weren't developed at all and I found myself just not caring what happened. I have read and listened to a number of John Saul novels and generally like his work. Do yourself a favor and skip this one!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The male narrator did not do a good job with the female protagonist's dialog: he made her sound whiny and annoying. Likewise with the Hawaiian and Japanese accents.
