This is in my top three. A little different from my usual thriller or horror choices but worth it. I really enjoyed listening to the narrator - she had good flow and pleasant tone. The whole story was very well written and the author made sure not to give too many clues as to what was going to happen next or what happened in the past.
I loved how the story developed through the main characters telling of events and how the characters evolved. In the beginning there are a few characters you are meant to hate but as the story evolves your view of them will change. This is definitely a book I would listen to again - very enjoyable.
My favorite is near the end when Judith finds the strength within her she had all along.
The main character, Judith, was the most memorable not just because she is the one telling the story but because she is the one who changes the most.
My only complaint is that it was too short. I was sad that it was over so soon. I'm looking forward to listening to other books by Julie Berry.
This was a great story and the narrator was excellent - he really brought the story alive for me. Just a word of warning though the subject matter was a bit dark and could be disturbing because it did relate to children. But it was extremely well written and the writer did give the ending away. Worth the listen for anyone who loves this genre.
Probably not - I listened to The Good House by Tananarive Due and loved it so I thought these 3 short stories would be similar. They were not. I think they would have been better as full stories/books.
For a first in a series this was a very good book. The narration is good and John Sanford keeps the story moving along. I have listened to later books in this series and they were even better. Classic cop/crime solver book.
The story, characters and narration. I didn't know it was part of series until after I listened to it - very well written.
Yes - there was never a dull moment. As the story developed I was more and more hooked. And as I neared the end I still didn't know "who did it". Its always a good book for me if the author can keep me guessing.
No but I can't wait to start the series from the beginning - the narration went along with the story very well.
Yes - the narration helped the suspensful scenes come alive. When I was finished I added more books narrated by Robin Miles to my wish list.
Great plot - I love a great scary story and this one had all the right elements - a scary house, voodoo, and characters you love and hate.
If you love a good thriller and mystery this is a must listen. Definitely a perfect fit for an audio book.
The story was a little slow and since it takes place in Belfast I had a hard time keeping up the accents. It did pick up more at the end - I enjoyed the second half of the book a little better.
Live by Night is the top of the list. I have read a few Dennis Lehane books before and loved them and Live by Night did not disappoint.
I love the prohibition era and bad guy that you can't help but love.
I don't usually listen to books more than once but I will be listening to this one again. It was excellent. I couldn't stop listening. The characters were very well developed and Lehane really knows how to bring the characters to life. The narration was great too - the story flowed very well.
Great listen - I couldn't turn it off.
The performance was great and it was a nice change of pace to have several narators. The story of course is a classic. Worth the listen.
