They call her Blister. She's a hideously disfigured 23-year-old woman, living in a shed next to her father's house, hidden away from the world.
Jason Tray is a successful cartoonist, banished to his agent's lakeside cabin for a few days of mandatory rest and relaxation. One night, while hanging out with a couple of the locals at a dive bar, he takes them up on their offer to go "see Blister," having no idea what they're talking about.
He peeks through the window at the most nightmarish thing he's ever seen.
In the morning, he wakes up, hung over and regretful. He's better than this. Does he need to apologize?

I am brutally honest. Popular, love everything they read, reviewers are scared to go neg. and risk their ranking. It's your money!!!
This is the best book I have listened to all year, maybe all of last year too. This has been slotted into the horror section, as that is what Strand normally writes. It is more literature, more romance and a lot more humorous, than horror. I applaud all books that include romances with women, who are not beautiful. Strand does this with class. This is not LOL funny as his book Wolf Hunt, the humor is more chuckles, although I found the part where some guys threaten to harm his dog, ended up being, fall on the ground funny. The book is in its fourth hour before anything truly scary happens. If you liked Rachael Vincent's Menagerie or Emma Donoghue's Room, you should enjoy this.
I felt so sorry for Blister and the way she was treated when she was a victim. But everyone hated her afraid their crimes and secrets would come out so they wanted her locked away in the shed never coming out. Until her hero comes along and opens the world back open for her. Great book. will have to read more Jeff Strand. Narrator was very good.
Interesting, Amusing, Heartfelt
The main protagonist, Jason. He is funny and likable while maintaining a sense of relatability.
I did not like the narrator's voice for Blister. He sounded unnecessarily breathy and almost attempting to be sultry.
Why isnt this a movie yet???Very well done,with just a stellar crew of characters-i was going in believing this was going to be a dark suspense but instead,i was quickly laughing through some awkward moments!The narration is top notch,true to each character and each personality-Daniel Drose turned this great story in a greater storytelling session.I enjoyed the pace of its progression,and the buildup of the events..very engrossing.I have already recommended this to several friends and family.
Overall only OK at best. The narrator seemed a little lethargic in his oration. Also seemed to be an older voice than the characters age, not an age-appropriate choice. This is not a horror story at all. It was more of a love story/thriller.... too many feelings.
It was just very dull.
There was no progression. It was the same throughout the story.
Seemed bored with the story as much as I was.
I really feel it was not worth the credit. I listened all the way through hoping for something but was left disappointed and underwhelmed.
Was very much enjoying the story, but WAY put if by the sounds of recoding. Disappointed. Can't recall the end over my announce of echoes and reels.
