Publisher's Summary

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?

    Story
    "Character Driven, Warm and Fuzzy, Funny, Scary"

    EYEBALL JUICE
    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.

    "What a backwater town."

    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.

    Story
    "Very Surprisingly Story about humanity."
    What made the experience of listening to Blister the most enjoyable?

    First of all the narrator, Daniel Dorse, does a terrific job. Jason Tray , The main charactor is a cartoonist on vacation in a small town. Drinking with new friends, they take him to see " Blister" With no explanation at all. She is very disfigured 23 year old woman with burns and slashes all over face. Jason feeling guilty about saying "what the f#@& is that ? " upon seeing Amanda. Apologizing to her the next morning , bringing her a drawing(so sweet) ,starts to unravel the entire town. I enjoyed all the characters in the town, Jeff Strand wrote a mystery, romance, suspense tale. It was recommended to me by a friend, and I thank him. . Living in a very small southern village myself, it is true some folks speak this way, we do know everytime a police car or ambulance goes to someones house. I believe it must be a phone tree deal. All that to explain why everyone in the book knows everyone and everything that's going on almost before it actually happens Really loved this book it kept me up until 3 am listening to it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jason Tray was my favorite . He was very laidback, sweet, and funny also. In any situation he tries .... to remain calm, and never stir up trouble. But one little problem, he never could stand someone "telling him what to do "


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Jason scares the mean little boys away for harassing his miniature schnauzer.


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

    When Mr Mason starts to like Jason. Jason isn't sure if he's being sincere or setting him up for something.


    Any additional comments?

    This book did have a few horrific events occur. But it's not a horror story ! Just a very,very suspenseful book. Abosolutely would recommend. But not for the squeamish or children.

    If you could sum up Blister in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting, Amusing, Heartfelt


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main protagonist, Jason. He is funny and likable while maintaining a sense of relatability.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I did not like the narrator's voice for Blister. He sounded unnecessarily breathy and almost attempting to be sultry.

    "NO SCARS LEFT HIDDEN"

    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.

    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Extremely underwhelmed"
    What would have made Blister better?

    It was just very dull.


    What was most disappointing about Jeff Strand’s story?

    There was no progression. It was the same throughout the story.


    What didn’t you like about Daniel Dorse’s performance?

    Seemed bored with the story as much as I was.


    Any additional comments?

    I really feel it was not worth the credit. I listened all the way through hoping for something but was left disappointed and underwhelmed.
