The novel is a tale of death, murder, rape and mayhem.It is a hard-core crimes and what goes in the criminal’s mind. You might want to sit down and let yourself into it for several hours and enjoy the audiobook.
I am a wee bit over the half a century mark in years. I enjoy audiobooks,cats,rats and most days my family,not necessarily in that order!lo

Mister Socky is found at a thrift store by a little boy who obviously has some emotional problems BIG TIME!! Dusty and Mister Socky get into a lot of trouble all at the influence of Mister Socky and poor Dusty ends up in prison till his 21st birthday...then once again him and Mister Socky go on another murder and mayhem spree...
Interesting and quick listen...worth it if you like the genre, and a good narration!!
I've always found sock moneys a little on the creepy side and never understood their appeal. Now that I've listened to Mister Socky, I hate them even more.
Part creepy tale and part gorefest, Mister Socky is an entertaining tale that will make sure you never look at a sock monkey in the same way again. There was enough violence and gore to appeal to the extreme horror fan in me, and it was creepy enough to hold my interest.
Joe Hempel did a great job with this story. He made Mister Socky sound menacing and narrated the rest of the story with clarity and enthusiasm. This is my first Joe Hempel audiobook, but it won't be my last.

Second-hand Murder & Mayhem
Indeed, trying to predict how Chucky-like this was going
The way he portrayed Mr. Socky....it was dripping with malicious intent
Not really extreme, but I found it very amusing
warped day dream
When I first started listening to this story. I honestly couldn't believe what I was listening to. There are a couple of gory parts that were just... warped. Basically I felt that if other people around me knew what I was listening too. mouths would open... Heck I was just super surprised at some scenes and felt that I should pause or skip ahead since the scenario was just SO wrong. I definitely recommend this story if you do not mind warped, gorish scenes and are into stories with surprise factors throughout.
The narrator was excellent - he was able to portray Dusty the mislead and easily controlled child/youth then grownup and Mister Socky the provocateur adequately. The ending was actually quite surprising - it took you in a direction you wouldn't expect.

I am an avid reader and listener of horror and thrillers with the occasional SciFi and crime noir. I review on Amazon, GR, NG & Audible.

Glad Joe was nice enough to gift this one to me because the dude nailed the narration. Joe has a very distinct voice and his timing and pace of story are always right on the mark. Very well done, as usual, from Mr. Hempel.
This story was pretty much what I expected it to be. I even expected the gross out meter to be a ten…and then Tim turned it up to eleven. Daaammnn.
Most dolls are creepy. I have, however, grossly underestimated the pure unadulterated evil that is the sock monkey. (And I am mildly embarrassed that I did have one as a child). Mine was a wee tamer and thankfully didn’t tell me to run amok in a grocery store with a machete.
Supermarket slaughter, geriatric veejayjay removal, and family candlestick fun. A brutal and over the top violent and disturbing short from the obviously demented mind of Tim Miller.
Extreme Horror, very graphic and gory author. This book is the typical Tim Miller. Quick fun listen and not for the faint of heart but will not let my niece or nephew get a sock toy!
