martin can really spin a yarn, and donachie's performance is spot on! the characters are flawed and beautifully realized, most of them walking right off the page. i will certainly listen to this audiobook again some day.
get it. read it. good good good. being a jaded horror reader, i didn't think i would like Crickley Hall. I was wrong. I deeply enjoyed it. was it terribly scary? no, but i did get the creeps from time to time. and it was a very interesting read. the characters were good. their relationships were believable. there was plenty to keep me coming back when the chills were only so-so. the reader is extraordinary. his nuanced reading adds to the material. it lends the lines an extra push of reality, of "this is actually happening."
certainly. the narrator is perfect for the material.
everything matters. don't want to give anything away.
don't even breath...
an honestly good horror story. done with integrity. at turns creepy, at others spit-gulping gross. the characters are interesting and fresh and never boring or stale or wooden. file under literary horror.
liked Snow Day quite a bit. "read" it in two sittings and will "read" it again. not only did it make this 40-year-old a little paranoid of his neighbors, but it made him wonder about his childhood and what might have been lurking there. as for the narrator's performance, at first i found it a little over-the- top but it quickly grew on me and i very much enjoyed it overall.
hard to praise this book enough. Haunting, enthralling, richly detailed, complex. am sure i'll read it again and again, and i can't wait for Penny's next.
awesome. excellent writing and characters. don't let the cheesy title fool you. this ride is worth twice the price of admission.
Reapers is well written and unique, thrilling and provocative. the characters are engaging and absolutely human. proof there is still some bite left in zombie fiction.
excellent story. truly haunting. I don't want to say too much because i don't want to give it away.
really wanted to like this story, but it simply didn't work for me. i love a well-written tale of despair and this certainly fits the description, but i found myself waiting for it to end. if you like your fiction dark (I do) and value writing over story (I don't), this might work out better for you.
...is worth a listen if you don't mind a little corn with your fiction. i minded, but lansdale's writing and a superb narrator kept my attention until the very end. will keep an eye out for lansdale's next.
