Publisher's Summary

Alex and Leslie Twisden lead charmed lives - fabulous jobs, a luxurious town house on Manhattan's Upper East Side, a passionate marriage. What they don't have is a child, and as they try one infertility treatment after the next, yearning turns into obsession. As a last-ditch attempt to make their dream of parenthood come true, Alex and Leslie travel deep into Slovenia, where they submit to a painful and terrifying procedure that finally gives them what they so fervently desire... but with awful consequences.

Ten years later, cosseted and adored but living in a house of secrets, the twins Adam and Alice find themselves locked into their rooms every night, with sounds coming from their parents' bedroom getting progressively louder, more violent, and more disturbing.

Driven to a desperate search for answers, Adam and Alice set out on a quest to learn the true nature of the man and woman who raised them. Their discovery will upend everything they thought they knew about their parents and will reveal a threat so horrible that it must be escaped, at any cost.

    Story
    "Good; not great"
    Would you listen to Breed again? Why?

    No. Gripping story but once is plenty. I wasn't crazy about the reader, and many parts of the story made you think, "No one would act like this!"


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Breed?

    The ending itself was probably a good way to bring the story to closure, but the events that got the reader there strained credulity.


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

    Parents: Your worst enemy.


    Any additional comments?

    I was amazed to see this on a list of 50 best fiction books of the year. Must not have been a lot of competition -- and I love horror as a genre!

    I'm open to any book as long as it is true to itself.

    Story
    "I couldn't care less about these characters"

    This book started off being quite well observed, but it hit a point where it moves forward in time and after that it became a different book. It was repetitive and boring. Suspending belief only goes so far and then it hits the point where it loses tension and excitement as you stop caring about the characters. Very disappointing after it promises to explore an interesting idea but overdoes it on every front.
