Monster | [Frank Peretti]

Monster

It's Peretti's ultimate monster story. And this time, the monster is real. Miles away from the hectic city, Reed and Rebecca hike into the beautiful Northwestern woods. They're surrounded by gorgeous mountains, waterfalls, and hundreds of acres of unspoiled wilderness. But something - or someone - begins closing in on them. Something no human has ever seen. And it's killing everyone in its path without remorse.

    "Liked it"

    I liked the fact that the author was also the narrarator. He's able to add emphasis where someone may not have picked up on the pages.
    I have listened to several other narrators and I think Frank Peretti did a fine job. I did find the soundeffects at the begining of each chapter a little distracting.

    "Fantastic!"

    A wild adventure! I was never bored and it kept me with my muscles tense in a lot of places. I highly recommend for anyone who is a scifi monster fan.

    "Just OK"

    What was hard to get past was the narrarator doing the voice of one of the female characters. It almost made it unbearable but I got past it. The story is just so-so and I am surprised because the Piercing the Darkness, etc. books were so good.

    "Ugh"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I couldn't get very far into it. Not certain if it is for children or not.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Frank Peretti again?

    I have already purchased a few of his books. I liked The Oath enough to get more. Hope I will not be disappointed in the rest.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Perhaps a different narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    I was shocked to see this was narrated by the author. It didn't sound like a child's book in the description. However, it is read that way. I found it too annoying to get past 2 hours.

    "Not very good"
    What disappointed you about Monster?

    The story was not very good


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader needs to pause when changing scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    There are good writers and good story tellers. This writershould not have tried to be both

    "A Sasquatch Adventure :)"
    What made the experience of listening to Monster the most enjoyable?

    Listening to Frenk Peretti perform his own work is always a pleasure.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Definitely lots of action and surprises.


    What does Frank Peretti bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I definitely get things out of it I didn't notice when I read the novel. I also get a better feel about how he viewed the characters as he was writing them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and probably would have... although an abridged version would have sucked majorly.


    Any additional comments?

    Not Perettis best work, but all the science had me wondering... could they do that? And it was a fascinating story, I especially like the fact that whatever you might have thought the explanation for the Sasquatches was going to be... you were wrong XD Still waiting on that third This Present Darkness sequel, lol.

    "Good story but a little disappointing"

    Good story but I was expecting a spiritual allegory. I kept waiting for an analogy to be drawn but it never happened. Interesting and enjoyable story though.

    "Harry and the Hendersons!!!"

    This was a good listen! The fear factor was really enhanced in an audible version, compared to the written word. Suspicious big foot sightings have been whispered about, folk are being maimed and an evil scientist is up to no good...I wouldn't go down to those woods today!
