June 1984. Timmy Graco is looking forward to summer vacation, taking it easy and hanging out with his buddies. Instead, his summer will be filled with terror and a life-and-death battle against a nightmarish creature that few will believe even exists. Timmy learns that the person who’s been unearthing fresh graves in the cemetery isn’t a person at all. It’s a thing. And it’s after Timmy and his friends. If Timmy hopes to live to see September, he’ll have to escape the Ghoul.

"The enormity of Keene’s pulp horror imagination is both rare and wonderful." (Publishers Weekly)
"Keene is a virtuoso writer." (Fangoria)
We were all kids once, and this is a typical Brian Keene gore fest with unmentionable violation of women. This is the only aspect I don't like about Keene, but if you want a pleasant read then go read "Gone with the Wind!"
This is a classic Brian Keene, not for the faint of heart or the viscerally sensitive. Be ready to be spooked, horrified, and saddened. Keene does not try to redeem the better qualities of the human race, but to expose the darker elements, and the supernatural, and let you digest it.
wise in the ways of metal
Excellent characterization and a rapid pace.
Stand by Me (Stephen King) for its realistic portrayal of young boy characters.
The narrator himself. His mechanical delivery gave tension to the reading.
The Ghoul himself, if he could restrain himself.
A really great listen that was better than expected. The story is very intimate but with hints at a much larger overall horror as we learn a bit of The Ghoul's origins.
I really enjoyed this. the story and the reading were good. the narrator conveyed different voices extremely well. as with another listener, i used up my credit too fast on this one! a slight criticism - the narrator should slow down just a little. otherwise a good 'spend' of a credit.
Wow, what a great job by the narrator. I have never heard such great voice work by a male speaking for females. Usually, it is poorly executed - not here. Great character differentiation as well. The story was also interesting and atmospheric, making great use of location descriptions. Highly recommend.
Yes. The way the narrator tells the story, it's as if your watching it on tv.
The cave part.
I would highly recommend this book to the adventurer.
Yes. In time. Why? Because it ws entertaining.
Dan Simmons wrote great book that would compare to this. I forgot the name, but I think it had Summer in the title. It was about a group of kids, friends, an old school. That probably isn't real helpful, but maybe someone can help me out here and come up with the name.
The story was good, well written and the reader was very good. I have listened to books before where The reader ruins the book.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
