The Perry family's new house is perfect - except for the weird behavior of the neighbors, and that odd smell coming from a dark corner in the basement. Pity no one warned the family about the house. Now it's too late. Because the darkness at the bottom of the basement stairs is rising.

I was surprised didn't see anything coming . Very very good !!! I want more
Compelling, scary, spooky
"The Haunting" which was made into a movie. Because it had a similar theme.
Scared to Death
An avid reader who cherishes my time with a good book!
This was my first book by Bentley so I wasn't sure what to expect. It was engaging, lots of neat and very creepy original elements but overall I thought the ending was a bit of a letdown. It is a little bit graphic in parts but it fit the overall tone of the book. It does seem a bit far reaching, even for a novel about the supernatural and I found there were a few plot lines that didn't exactly come together for me. I felt like I was looking for some closure at the end that I never really got. However if you are looking for a spooky tale, this should do it for you. Not your typical ghost story.
Happiness is a good book!
This book was very good. I do think it would have been just as good if not better if the sexual scenes weren't the most detailed things through out the whole book. Despite that, it was a great haunted house story. As for the narrator, decent for what he had to read. If language & sexual content is very rated R so listening out loud is a bad idea. Otherwise great!

The Haunting of Hell House. Same kind of story line, this one has a modern day twist.
He needs to work on his female voices.
See my three words above.
Normally, I have had trouble getting through Bentley Little's books. This one started slow, but built up speed and kept it there. I enjoyed this and made my husband check the bathroom for about a week. The narrator is not the worst I have heard, but not everyone can be Scott Brick. Any way, I did like this book. Once it got going, it kept you there till the end
Anyone who would enjoy finding a hyperbolic political diatribe in the middle of what is presumably a ghost story. If I wanted the author's political opinions, I would hope to read them in an editorial - not a work of fiction.
No - I didn't bother finishing this one.
The narrator seemed fine.
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
Better books available.
It was fine.
Yes,because they would have to give it an explaining ending.
This book had great potential. It was like the author got tired of writing it and was lost for an ending. It needed a conclusion of the build up of facts. Could have been great because the story was intrigueing.
I've read many horror novels and have seen many horror movies, but nothing has ever actually scared me. While this book didn't scare me, it did give me some fun chills. The era and place feel like characters, too. Definitely a fun read!
This is one of those books it's hard for me to give a review that will be meaningful to most. I found the story average. It's got some really creepy parts. Things that make you question reality. But then I also felt parts of it were your typical horror flick wee you wanted to scream at them for being idiots. Because really they were, it wasn't even an I'm reading and seeing the bigger picture, it's why the heck would that stupidly even cross your mind things.
However God nature of the haunting, and it's over arching purpose as well as the ending were unique enough gag I couldn't rank it a 1 or 2. So really for me it's kind of average. That's all.
"No overly impressed."
This wasn't a bad story, I just didn't find it very 'horrory' at all. I remember listening to 'The Secret of Crickley Hall' with the lights of and getting the feel for it. Feeling the atmosphere pressed upon me. I did not get that feeling in the slightest with this book.
The story itself was ok, but I found it to be incredibly predicatble. It didn't give me that 'I have to get back to listening to that book' feel I get from other titles.
I'm not too bothered due to the fact I got it with a credit, but I would have been disappointed if I paid for it. I just expected more.
