WELCOME TO THE RUSHMORE INN
The bed and breakfast was hidden in the hills of West Virginia. Wary guests wondered how it could stay in business at such a creepy, remote location. Especially with its bizarre, presidential decor and eccentric proprietor.
ONCE YOU CHECK IN...
When the event hotel for the national Iron Woman triathlon accidentally overbooked, competitor Maria was forced to stay at the Rushmore. But after checking into her room, she quickly realized she wasn't alone. First her suitcase wasn't where she put it. Then her cell phone was moved. Finally, she heard an odd creaking under the bed. Confusion quickly turned to fear, and fear to hysteria when she discovered the front door was barred and the windows were bricked over. There was no way out.
...YOU'LL BE DYING TO LEAVE
One year later, four new female athletes have become guests of the Inn. Will they escape the horrors within its walls? Or will they join the many others who have died there, in ways too terrible to imagine?
ENDURANCE by Jack Kilborn
Are you brave enough to finish?
A Word of Warning
Originally scheduled to be released in paperback in 2010, the publisher read the final version of the manuscript and refused to release it.
This is a disturbing, terrifying book. You may think you're brave enough to handle it. But you're probably not...

Books are for dreaming with eyes wide open.
Good lord this book was bloody but oddly satisfying. The good guys and girls were awesome, the bad guys were awful, and the ending was great. Get this book if you think you can stomach it.
I have a quilting business. Since I love to read, I cannot read a book and quilt at the same time. Now I can listen to books and quilt too.
The story itself was quite good. I wanted to hear it all to the end...even though so many things in the story line were bothersome to me.
Felix for his tenacity.
The narration in my opinion was way overdone in several of the characters. The number one voice that personally bothered me was the voice of the mother/grandmother. She was in her 60's and the narrator had her sounding like a 100 year old woman. Geesh, I'm in my 60's and his rendition of her was totally overdone. In many other characters too. The narrator certainly has talent...but in this case...overdone.
Maria and Felix
I enjoyed the story line,....even though it was a very unlikely story. I wanted to finish the book...glad I did. I think the author set the ending up for another book. This one was enough for me. But all in all I'm not sorry I listened to it.
I don't know. I didn't read the print version
The interactions between the characters especially Mal and Deb and between Kelly, Florence, and Letty.
I have not listened to anything else by Christopher Lane but you can be sure I will in the future. This guy is absolutely awesome!! There were tons of characters in this book and he nailed every. Single. One. I cannot say enough about his talent.
Hmmm...I think I would take Florence because she was so interesting and had seen so much in her life. I want to hear more.
No doubt, this book was extremely gory and grisly and the bad guys were so, so disgusting, but Kilborn did a great job offsetting the darker moments with humor and I honestly shed a tear or two during the more emotional scenes. The characters' unceasing will to survive completely entranced me.
Let's start out with a cliche: this is literally my first review. I felt compelled to write it because the narrator of this book is unbelievably amazing. He switches characters, genders and accents seamlessly, and makes a book which is in some places difficult to digest, delicious! I can't overstate how great this man is! As for the story, it's creepy and in places gratuitous, but not to the point that I did not enjoy. This is a great Halloween listen, perfect for anyone who likes to get the willies from time to time!!!
Jack Kil born did not disappoint . This book was action packed, funny, thrilling, and of course a little grotesque for those die hard horror buffs.
Gruesome, heart wrenching, and fast paced.
This is a toss up, I really enjoyed Florence and Mal. Florence is someone I'd like to physically be like when I'm older; Mal had the best sense of humor despite everything that the characters encounter.
Lane's performances were amazing; however Eleanor stands out. He was able to embody the matriarch of the Roosevelt clan in such a way you actually liked her and her odd way of thinking...if only for a moment.
Sheer determination is the only means to survival.
This books proves that no matter the circumstances and challenges you face in your life, you CAN survive anything you set your mind too.
I can see this as a scary movie! The narrator totally made the story exciting. There were only a few character descriptions that were to outlandish to swallow but for the most part the pace of the story and the steely female characters kept me on the edge of my seat.
This is the first book I have listened to by this author and narrator. I will definitely be looking for more books by these guys!!
