    Story
    "Fast paced."

    This book moves along at a cracking pace. Never a dull moment, grips you every chapter.

    Phil Gigante has done an excellent narration combined with sounds and voices.

    If you loved the Jack Daniel's book as I did you will really enjoy this.

    "AWESOME!"
    If you could sum up Afraid in three words, what would they be?

    This was a great book - that kept you listening - and the narrator, Phil Gigante - is so far the BEST - that I have listened to - it made me actually picture the characters by the voices the did for them - KUDOS!!!!!!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Plot and Narrator!


    Have you listened to any of Phil Gigante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Never- but for sure will NOW - this is how I am going to search for books - by the narrator!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Action, Horror, Mystery - you get it ALL - and romance - through all the tragedy - and family coming together - it had EVERYTHING!

    OMGosh - I was thinking last night -when the book was over - OH - I wish this was a movie!

    "Much too gory!!!!!!"
    Would you try another book from Jack Kilborn and/or Phil Gigante?

    No


    What could Jack Kilborn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Reduce the gore


    Have you listened to any of Phil Gigante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but he does very well with the voices and building the terror.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Shock, revulsion, and disappointment that I had wasted one of my two free Audible.com downloads.


    Any additional comments?

    SPOILER ALERT:

    Imagine the mental picture the listener forms as early in the book a woman is butchered
    ALIVE!, and then not killed until her husband is helpless on the bed beside her!

    Help Me! I can't stop reading this crap! Some of it is so hokey but i still can't stop. I can't lie to you but some of it is brilliant too. The way he carries some of his creepy characters over from book to book. I haven't been this excited about the horror genre in a long time! Terrific author! A warning though very gory!

    "Not Afraid, maybe grossed out but good"

    Well I admit that I was influened by the other rave reviews about this. Certainly the description doesn't tell you enough to know what it's about or the title. But Afraid isn't appropriate title. It's not a scary story. It's a violent, odd story about a red ops commando group that gets dropped in a small town and kill most everyone in it and along the way it's so violent, weird, gory sometimes that I did not enjoy it in the end. I did finish it. I guess if you like that sort of thing then you'd like it, but it was too much from start to finish on things like one of the guys likes to eat peoples fingers and toes so he does to several people and one is a mass murder who slays about 100 town people in a gym and that whole scene is just disgusting so... what can I say - TOO violent - someone has a very weird imagination too. I will give credit to the narrator - he's excellent.

    "Absolutely Dreadful!"

    Perhaps one of the worse audiobooks I've ever purchased. The characters had absolutely NO development, the violence went beyond it's usefulness in an effort to save an absurdly stupid plot.

    Usual garbage about the bad U.S. Military creating almost super human fighters who attack a town. The entire plot was centered around sadistic serial killers made into solders.

    The writer is an exploiter. Using violence to make a buck!

    Save your money or credit.
