I am a customer of audible and only receive 1 credit per month so I try and use them wisely. This book was a new listing and didn't have any reviews. I was in the mood for a horror/scary book and thought I'd give this a try. Oh what a waste. The format of this story is written as a script to a movie, or 3 movies it seems. I just couldn't get into it. Occasionally I could visualize the story and thought Ah ha! Now it's going to get better. But unfortunately those moments were fleeting. I had to start and restart the novel several times and found that I would zone out I was so bored and have to relisten. I only made it about 1/3 of the way through this aubible book before I couldn't take it anymore. The story had interesting parts and if written in a different form may have succeeded. And it might make a good scary movie but as an audio book it was awful, spare your credit and choose something else
Written as a movie script. Really frustrating to listen to. Could not get into this book, even though I like the story concept. No idea why they wrote it this way!
