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...

Again King provides us with a group of boys that break your heart, I didn't want the story to end and silly as is sounds, I missed these guys when the story was over. This is one of his better non-horror stories with a plot that turned my stomach into knots each time the characters crossed another hurtle.
The narrator using a 'regular' voice and accent
No sure, I listen to a lot of them
I don't know them by name.
Didn't listen to the story.
If you like listening to a Southern "Mark Twain" kind of accent, maybe you will like this one.
This book kept my attention throughout! Christopher Lane does an excellent job with the characters! I recommend this book highly if you can stand books a little on the gross side. Jack Kilborn does it again!
This book was a joy to listen to! I laughed out loud, cringed when 'feeling' the characters' pain, and just couldn't stop listening!! This was one of the best books ever!!! Anyone who likes gore, intense edge of your seat situations, and laughter, will like this book.
What does it say about me that I enjoyed every cringe worthy, nail biting, excruciating moment of this book. Konrath....how do you think? He is such a great author but I wouldn't want to spend the night over his house maybe just dinner with at least five other guests. Always humorous, always violent to a sickening degree, always great characters and always the bad guy that got away or conceives another bad guy. Women protagonists are always strong bad arse.
Endurance was an exciting, disturbing trek into the twisted world of a "roach motel" West Virginia bed and breakfast. The protagonists were interesting and surprisingly-well fleshed out, considering the number of them. The antagonists were mostly two-dimensional, but between their sheer number and visceral descriptions it wasn't a problem.
This exceptional thriller was enhanced by the incredible narration of Christopher Lane. I can't say enough good about how well the antagonists, in particular, were voiced.
Great story, great writing, great narration... great experience!
This story kept me entertained, although I must admit it strongly reminded me of an old episode of the X-Flies where Mulder and Scully investigate an incident in the deep south with an older lady and her inbred children. If you enjoy a fair amount of gore and some cheap thrills this book might be down your alley.
One of the stand out aspects of Endurance was the absolutely great narration by Christopher Lane. I wouldn't hesitate to listen to another story narrated by him.
I thought at first the narrator's voice was a little hard to get used to, given the country accent .. But as I kept listening I quickly came to Love it!! The narrator's voice gives such character to the characters & the different voices he does for each feels like your standing in a room full of people. It's amazing. I've already almost fully read this book on my Kindle years ago but had to get the audio book to listen to. Started from the beginning & I'm enjoying it so much. I have many of Kilborns Kindle books and he is in my top 5 authors!! Terrifying story to listen to in the dark, the voices get right to you.. Sometimes comical, but I think it gives such a great touch to this story! So glad I bought it!!
