Based on the book description alone, yes, but after reading the book. No. It listed a mystery thriller, but this book is really neither. It just follows a little girl who lost a sibling.
Small SPOILER: Without ever reavealing what truly happened to her brother leaves this book just hanging. Listening to the life of this little girl growing up was interesting with her family an all, but seemed to me nothing was tied up.
No. I am sure the narrator does a fine job, but this book he literally drove me nuts!
The narrator fluctuated his voice to the point that the was speaking so low you had to turn up the volume only to blown out of your chair with blood running out of your ears! Not really that extreme but you get the idea. The story behind this book is good, but the narration pulls away from it.
No, after having to have my heart defliberated a couple of times due to really really really low narration AND THEN THE EXTREMELY LOUD NARRATION IN THE SAME BREATH...sheesh
No, other than the narration really made this book a hard one for me to finish. I think if the fluctuating had not been there, I would have really liked this book. As a side note, on the parts he was not either talking really low or SCREAMING, he did a fabulous job. I did not mind him at all.
The narrator, he actually came across how I would see the main character coming across in real life.
I liked this story because it told it from the point of view of the loner. If such a thing were to ever happen there will more loners out there than "groups" . The book seemed very realistic to me if such a zombie apocolypse would happen. This is exactly what we would have to go through.
I would! It is a easy listen, and this one is good for a start to finish if you have a couple of hours to devote to it. I left the book I was listening to and listened to this one while I cleaned the house. It started, told a story, and ended. When it was over, house work was done!
The swingset on they playground.
This book gets into it quickly and keeps with it to it's satisfying end. I would not use a credit on this one, not for a 2 hour book, these little short ones, I just usually just buy these, they dont' cost alot. Save your credit for the more expensive books.
This might not be a fair review cause I just cannot get through this book! I finally quit 1/3 of the way in. The narration is horrible, maybe if Scott Brick read this book it might be different.
Not read it.
Maybe at a later time I will force myself to listen to it again, but save your credit and just read this one.
It was a good listen. The narrator did a good enough job with everyones voice. I can't say it was my favorite but it was not the worst I've listened to either.
The ending! I mean Really????
Grandpa. For the age of the man, he has a lot of stamina, and I love how he worked through getting to have a relationship with his grandson.
Not going to give out and spoilers but the there is a alot of promise with a story such as this, but I feel it fell a little short. Parts of the book seem to flow, while other parts felt like they were just stuck in there as a little extra.
I would. Now that I know the ending, I would pay more attention to some of the little details.
The realization for Cap at the end. I just wanted to cry for the man.
I enjoyed this book. It is suspenseful, scarey at times, and it did keep me wanting to listen to it. There are a few places where it lulled but overall a good listen.
Overall narration was good, but his handling of the female characters is a little off. He portrayed David's daughter with a english accent, but did not with any of the other characters. How does a little girl who lives in CO get a english accent when no one else in the family does?
I really enjoyed the overall premise of the book, without giving out any spoilers, the leading up the ending felt a little rushed, and the actual ending left it like there should be a book 2. The book kept me interested, even though the little girl has a english accent, and the wife at times really irritated me with how she was handling the haunting. She just keeps saying do this and it will go away.
I would not without having said friend read/listen to Rushed (book 1). Having said that, I would highly recommend these books! They are not heavy on the horror aspect but they are a really fun listen.
Eric, just the way he handles all the obsticles he is faced with through out the book.
No, but the whole story line just kept my attention, and I can't say that about all the books I listen to.
In my own personal opinion, these books do not disappoint.
Creepy, Provoking, Enlightening
The way he vocalized the thoughts of the Warren's, the way he told the story. I liked it.
I read this book many many many years ago, when I saw it here I had to have it and listen to it. Was not disappointed. I started reading the Warrens' work when I was a teenager back in the early 80's and have been fascinated with ever since. It was very sad when Ed passed away back in 2006 but we each must move on. This is a couple I could have sat down and talked with for hours. Not everyone believes in the paranormal, and for those that don't well they don't, I am not one to push what I believe onto anyone else. I have always believed in it and will continue to listen to stories and read books on the subject.
If your are ghost paranoid then this book is not for you if you wish to sleep peacefully again, but if you can listen to it with a detached sense of mind then it is a great listen, if you don't believe in the paranormal at all I would keep on moving to the next book cause the whole book will be an eye roll for you.
The idea was very interesting. I can absolutely see big industry testing like this and the average person would have no idea it is happening.
How she was able to portray the male characters voices.
No, it was strange enough with adding a follow up to it
It is your typical John Saul book, centers around teenagers and kids. It is an alright listen, there were parts where my mind started to wonder and I would have to rewind. Typical single mom, single dad, meet and combine families in the beginning. Lots of teenage angst.
