The Bird Eater | [Ania Ahlborn]

The Bird Eater

Twenty years ago, the mysterious death of his aunt left Aaron Holbrook orphaned and alone. He abandoned his rural Arkansas hometown vowing never to return, until his seven-year-old son died in an accident, plunging Aaron into a nightmare of addiction and grief. Desperate to reclaim a piece of himself, he returns to the hills of his childhood, to Holbrook House, where he hopes to find peace among the memories of his youth. But solace doesn't come easy. Someone - or something - has other plans.

Publisher's Summary

Twenty years ago, the mysterious death of his aunt left Aaron Holbrook orphaned and alone. He abandoned his rural Arkansas hometown vowing never to return, until his seven-year-old son died in an accident, plunging Aaron into a nightmare of addiction and grief. Desperate to reclaim a piece of himself, he returns to the hills of his childhood, to Holbrook House, where he hopes to find peace among the memories of his youth. But solace doesn't come easy. Someone - or something - has other plans.

Like Aaron, Holbrook House is but a shell of what it once was, a target for vandals and ghost hunters who have nicknamed it "the devil's den." Aaron doesn't believe in the paranormal - at least, not until a strange boy begins following him wherever he goes. Plagued by violent dreams and disturbing visions, Aaron begins to wonder if he's losing his mind. But a festering darkness lurks at the heart of Holbrook House…a darkness that grins from within the shadows, delighting in Aaron's sorrow, biding its time.

    "WAS THE NARRATOR ON A BREATHING MACHINE!!!!"

    Every other sentence the narrator took a large breath. Hey Pete, why didm' t you add some open mouthed chewing to the loud breathing, that would have been the cherry on my ear sunday!

    "Stopped listening..."

    Don't rely on the Amazon reviews unless you're a fan of drivel. Listened to about 6 hours and just couldn't go on. Silly, poorly written story and horrible narration. I'll be returning this one...

    "Terrible Narration"
    Would you try another book from Ania Ahlborn and/or Peter Berkrot?

    I will absolutely try another book by Ahlborn, but I will avoid this narrator at all costs.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I couldn't even listen to it--I read most of this book on my Kindle. The narrator felt the need to make every single sentence sound scary--save it for the scenes that actually require it! Terrible.

    "I liked this book alot!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The story was scary, just the right amount! I like the narrator, I'd recommend this book to someone who likes supernatural books! I was never bored or too scared...just the right amount!


    What about Peter Berkrot’s performance did you like?

    I think he was emotional when needed, he did other "voices" well...he was pleasant to listen to.
