What the Critics Say

"Ketchum writes with economy and power, in sentences that tighten like noose wire. Anyone who enjoys fine, hard horror will appreciate this novel." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Terrible"

    I was so bored listening to this one. Even towards the end where the "action" is was awful as well. Waste of a credit and a waste of my time.

    "Not what I expected."

    In a word, boring, if I was reading it, instead of listening while doing other things, I wouldn't have even bothered to finish it. I expected suspense and entertainment but what I got was a slow moving coming of age story that ends in game of Hide and Seek (the last hour and a half). Yes, their are games played throughout but they aren't really the suspenseful, entertaining kind. If you are looking for an edge of your seat thriller, look elsewhere. I do like thought provoking suspense but this wasn't even that. Don't waste your time on this one, even if is only five and a half hours.

    "Not bad, but not wholly fantastic"

    I thought it was worth a listen, but due to the length of the piece I did not find the price justified.



    I did think the story was a good one and the author did draw you in and make you really care about the characters. He also paints vivid scenes and makes you feel as if you are experiencing some of it.



    However, as a horror, I thought it was lacking that scare factor.
