A different take on the traditional vampire story. Definitely written by men who like guns. The male narrator made the women sound weak and the story was a little drawn out. I liked the ending, though.
Not made females sound like helpless victims.
That would be interesting.
It's a decent story but the narrator grates on my nerves. She sounds like Thurston Howell III when she attempts to narrate a males voice. There isn't much to add to the summary provided by Audible. Not great but not bad either, just mediocre.
Mr. Mercedes isn't the old scary monster style that made Stephen King famous. This story is scary because of the depravity of the human mind - it could happen.
A retired cop gets taunted by a man who killed several people waiting in line for a job fair. Through a series of exchanges, the hunt for the killer is resurrected.
I've never been satisfied with most endings in SK's books and this isn't one of my favorite endings, either, but overall, it was a good read, especially after the Sleep Doctor garbage that he put out last year.
I din't realize this was a YA novel when I purchased it but I decided to give it a chance anyway. This story is about a group of young people, each with a supernatural ability, brought together for some type of experiment.
The ghost story wasn't bad but the teenaged hormones were just plain bad. "He's so sexy" was bad enough the first time it was used so by the time we got around to the fifth time or so, I was ready to throw my iPhone across the room.
There was also a very poorly written sex scene that really had no place in the book, not to mention the fact that my daughter is almost that age and that's not how I want to picture a young woman my daughter's age.
This book was very juvenile. It could have been a decent short story if Ms. Muto had a better editor.
I would have made the main characters name feminine. I kept thinking Reggie was a boy. The main character wasn't very likable, either, making her reminiscent of a Gillian Flynn character.
I liked other books by the author more than this one. This one was ok but I found the others more interesting.
None of them.
I can't see it as a movie, so I have no answer.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a slow, suspenseful tale. The author would tell you just enough, then leave you hanging until the background story is picked up again, which kept my interest.
It was a haunting story without gore or sex.
I thoroughly enjoyed the narrators work. She had believable voices for each character and would enjoy listening to her narrations again.
The ending felt rushed and was rather silly. SPOILER ALERT: The ending of the main part of the story sounded like an episode of The Haunting on The Discovery Channel. It was pretty awful, especially after reading what I considered to be a very good ghost story.
I didn't read the book, I only listened to the audiobook.
I thought the first half was the best. I got a little boring during the beginning of the second half of the audiobook.
I wasn't fond of the ending and didn't think it was as well developed as it could have been. It was rushed but I also just thought it was a poor ending.
This is one of the best stories I've read lately. So often, the background story is given in the beginning and doesn't capture the readers interest but this author captured my interest from the very beginning.
Not on the edge of my seat but I looked forward to quiet time so I could listen to the story. I even shooed my husband out of the room once so I could have quiet to listen.
I hate to sound insulting but I do not like Cassandra Campbell's voice. She sounds so incredibly whiny that I want to reach through the book and slap her. This is the third book I've read that she's narrated and once she goes into her version of helplessness, it is mind-numbing.
Nothing extreme, just an enjoyable read.
I listened to and from my drive to work but it wasn't interesting enough for me to listen to at home. There were a lot of characters and it was hard keeping track of who was who in the beginning. That may also have been because I didn't give it my full attention because it didn't grab me.
When the monster ate the annoying people.
I actually rented the movie for comparison. That was a dud.
Yes, I would listen to this again. The story kept my interest and was enjoyable.
I enjoy the fantasy and magical aspect of it. Yes, some of it is corny but it's a nice, light read. I like the characters and hope to see them all happy in the end. The real world is filled with enough sorrow, so it's nice to have stories with happy endings.
It's not a story with any kind of deep meaning and it doesn't solve any questions. It's a fun book, well written. I actually want to visit Ireland even more after reading this book, so it will probably be the vacation we choose to celebrate my husbands retirement.
I like stories with magic in them, so this fits.
The love scenes when the characters finally give in to one another.
Looking forward to October 28th when the final book is released. I already marked my calendar with a reminder.
