This book was entertaining enough. I like the concept and sorta cared what happend to the main character. I could relate to his bad days and frustrations. It even made me want to get away from the main characters kids, they were pretty annoying. It's not scarey but it takes a lot to scare me. Narrator was ok, someone else could have done worse, someone else could have done better. All in all, not bad but I probably won't remember it in a week or two.
It was just really, truly boring.
It needed more than just a woman complaining that she's single. I get it, it sucks. Move on!
I think she did a fair job. I've heard better and worse.
I was disappointed in this book. I was expecting something more. Ah well, you win some you lose some.
Anyone who thinks Paranormal Activity 1-962 were scary films would enjoy this book. Anyone else will find it boring.
This book hasn't turned me off the genre, it's just yet another in a long line of so called scary books that falls extremely short of being scary.
I would. She has a beautiful and relaxing voice.
Ummm.. no. None at all.
Don't believe the hype. This book is not scary or even quasi entertaining.
The stories are interesting enough. The narration is pretty good.
The thing that bugs me the most is the Endless comments that basically is the author saying, "Look how important I am! Seriously. I'm that important. Everyone knows who I am, even people not interested in UFOs. I really am kind of a big deal!" I was kind of able to ignore the constant patting self on the back to get through the first half. The second half and this issue gets worse. This probably would have been a great book on "What ifs" and "Maybe" but for the endless ego stroking.
No, just the author.
I have not, but he does a very good job reading Keen's ego stroking. I would love to hear him read a better book.
Yes, never read or bother listening to anything from Keen again.
You wrote a book, Mr. Keen and that's great. Not many folks have written and had published any sort of book. With that said, get over yourself.
Yes, I might.
I'm not sure there's one that compares exactly. It has a "falling down the rabbit hole" surreal feel to it.
The story about the woman on the cliff.
No, probably not.
It's not scary (I feel like I write that a lot about "horror" books lately *sigh), but it is interesting.
I'm not really sure. It's kind of an "evil gnomes vs humans & owls" kind of story.
When someone starts to change.
Ya, out of curiosity.
This book was fairly good. It's not scary, but interesting. It lost something with the introduction of immortal owls. It's not a horrible book, it's pretty creative. Some books I've listened to and forgot the entire book the next day because they were so boring. This is not one of them.
The entire thing.
Maybe to throw on a camp fire to tell an interesting story.
The plot was just one dimensional. The other books had depth and good plots. This one seemed like he wanted to finish the story so he dragged out an ending he could have just tagged onto the last book in one chapter.
Yes, I would.
He was alright. I've heard better, I've heard worse.
Umm... no. None I hate to say.
If it was free.
The narrator was fine.
The stories are your run of the mill "trying to be scary and shocking but failing horribly" kind of stories. Granted, I don't get scared easily, but I expected more from Barker.
I love the build up to the ending, I also love the ending as well as book 2.
That it puts a mothers loyalty to whatever she gives birth to into question.
No, not really.
While I've never found this story to be scary, it is interesting. However, I'd heard from people that the book was different from the movie (and the sad remake), it really isn't any different. I was hoping that like the book "The Exorcist" it would shine a little more light on the story, it doesn't. So if you enjoyed the film, you'll like the book.
Mia Farrow is an amazing narrator.
None of them were scary.
It was like having Carl Sagen, whom I loved but spoke very, very slowly and nasally, on horse tranquilizers reading you the dictionary.
I'm beginning to think the folks who hire these narrators don't bother to listen to them before they record them.
