I liked that it obviously knew its source material-- horror movies-- and referenced them accordingly. The entity was creepy and creative. Unfortunately the end was predictable, and the narrator was so off base that she presented as incompetent. Her vocal characterizations did frequenty call to mind muppets.
The entity was interesting, and the main character would have been likeable if the narrator hadn't given her a bad Marilyn Monroe impression in the place of a voice.
Her first mistake was speaking. Her attempts at accents were distracting, her attempts at giving someone an ethnic presence was confusing, and her attempts at sexy were irritating.
With a competent narrator, possibly. But really, if you've ever seen a by the numbers slasher movie you've essentially read this. I would be curious to read it in print form, however.
Miss it in audible format. The narration is so bad it's impossible to enjoy the story.
People who enjoy an ending with no emotional resolution.
Nope. He punched me in the gut at the last minute. I have no desire to repeat that experience.
They both bring excellent characterization in their reading. Each do a wonderful job with accents and give a different tone for each character they are vocalizing.
Anger and disappointment. No real resolution, no punishment for several truly, profoundly vile characters. The heroes of the story instead drink the kool aid and join the parasites. That's not deep writing, that's simply infuriating. There is no catharsis.
This would have been an excellent book if Anise had exploded in slow motion with graphic description. Ditto for John.
