    In the wee hours of the morning on November 13, 1974, shots rang out in the upscale home at 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, New York, a village within the town of Babylon. The house belonged to forty-three year old Ronald DeFeo, Sr. and his forty-two year old wife, Louise, who lived there with their five children, ranging in age for nine to twenty-three. The DeFeos and four of their children were shot to death, execution style, while in bed.

    Would you try another book from R. Barri Flowers and/or Scott Clem?

    Absolutely not. There was so little information about the subject in the title and what little there was can be learned by a quick read thru any of a hundred places on the internet. Despite the fact that it contained so little information I was still able to catch a few mistakes in facts.
    But the worst part about this book is roughly half of it's running time is given over to excerpts from other similar books the author wants you to buy. That's half of the running time amounting to essentially a series of commercial ads.
    Not cool and I feel cheated. It's a good thing the book was so cheap.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Another in my chosen series of fiction novels - the Star Wars book series. They rarely disappoint.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Scott Clem?

    No one in particular. The narration was perfectly serviceable and the subject matter requires no particular voice acting skills.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Amityville Massacre?

    There's almost nothing to cut. I understand it was meant to be short but I feel this book could have benefited greatly from double the current runtime and information.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your time. There are many many more books on this subject that are available from Audible. Try one of those. I believe I may have read every book on the subject available with the exception of one very hard to find book. They range in quality but this is by far the only real stinker in the bunch.
