    When Valerie learns that her sister has been killed by a werewolf, she finds herself at the center of a dark mystery, one that has plagued her village for generations. It is revealed that the werewolf lives among them, and everyone in the village immediately becomes a suspect. Could her secret love, Peter, be behind the attacks on her town? Is it her betrothed, Henry? Or someone even closer to her?

    Overall

    At first I was a bit unsure about this novel, being based of a screenplay. But it very much surprised me. It was a delightfully full novel with incredibly real characters. It was dark and serious at times and at others soft and sweet. Erin Moon is brilliant in her narration and no two characters sound alike. However, I must warn any new buyer that it isn't finished. You wont get the full ending until after March 14 after the movie has aired. Then, as the audio tells you, go to the website so you can get the bonus chapter for the complete ending. But anyway, it is a wonderful novel that is so dark and rich I would buy it again. This is one fairy tale that has come into a whole new light.

    In one way or another, everybody abused Carrie. Her fanatical mother forbade this 16-year-old misfit everything that was young and fun. She was teased and taunted by her classmates, misunderstood by her teachers, and given up as hopeless by almost everyone.

    What made the experience of listening to Carrie the most enjoyable?

    Sissy Specek was a wonderful narrator. As the actress who played Carrie, she had a personal connection with the text that you could hear. She really gave voice to Carrie and all the other characters as well.


    What other book might you compare Carrie to and why?

    I'd say there is no book like Carrie.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Definitely the prom scene and the aftermath. The prom scene was described in horrific detail. And, even though it was awful, Carrie's vengeance on the down was sickeningly satisfying.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The moment when Tommy picked Carrie up for the prom was so moving. At that moment, you realize that Tommy has a good heart and that he does actually care for Carrie in his own way.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book. It's final message is quite clear--bullying cannot be ignored. Tragedy will come if this problem that is plaguing our country continues to be ignored.

    Eel Marsh house stands alone, surveying the windswept salt marshes beyond Nine Lives Causeway. Once, Mrs Alice Drablow lived here as a recluse. Now, Arthur Kipps, a junior solicitor with a London firm, is summoned to attend her funeral, unaware of the tragic and terrible secrets which lie behind the house's shuttered windows.

    One of the most terrifying novels I have ever listened to. Susan Hill is a master story teller and has proven that blood and gore is not needed for a terrifying story. The ghost story is a lost art, and Hill has used the timeless ghost story elements that can make grown men quiver. Moreover, this story was scary because of its atmosphere of menace. Paul Ansdell is an excellent narrator as well. He really brings Arthur Kipps to life in his narration and his inflection at the scary points made me feel as though Arthur was really in danger. Unlike a gore story, this story will haunt its listeners for many moons. I wouldn't recommend this children under 13, unless the child has a strong nerve. I thought I was far to old for ghost stories. But this story scared me so badly that I found my eyes darting around my bedroom for many nights after I had finished it, looking for the woman in black.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Gaiman’s not just an award-winning author, but a narrator who earns rave reviews – and fields requests from other authors to perform their books, too! Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead....

    "WONDERFUL"
    Overall

    This book was amazing! Neil Gaiman is an excellent writer and narrator. He can make each voice original to each character, and the story itself is completely mesmerizing! One you start listening you'll be hook. But it can be a bit strange and somewhat dark in places. Best keep it for kids no younger than five. But otherwise it is a must read!! If you loved Coraline then you'll love this too!!!
