Publisher's Summary

Evil doesn't always look scary....

Built at the turn of the 20th century by one of the richest and most powerful men in the world, tucked away in the pristine Pocono Mountains, Summer Place, a retreat for the rich and famous, seems the very essence of charm and beauty, "a scene borrowed from a wondrous fairytale of gingerbread houses, bright forests, and glowing, sunny meadows."

But behind the yellow and white trimmed exterior lurks an evil, waiting to devour the unwary....

Seven years ago, Professor Gabriel Kennedy's investigation into paranormal activity at Summer Place ended in tragedy, and destroyed his career. Now, Kelly Delaphoy, the ambitious producer of a top-rated ghost-hunting television series, is determined to make Summer Place the centerpiece of an epic live broadcast on Halloween night. To ensure success, she needs help from the one man who has come face-to-face with the evil that dwells in Summer Place, a man still haunted by the ghosts of his own failure. Disgraced and alienated from the academic community, Kennedy wants nothing to do with the event. But Summer Place has other plans....

As Summer Place grows stronger, Kennedy, along with the paranormal ghost hunting team The Supernaturals, sets out to confront - and if possible, destroy - the evil presence dwelling there.

But sometimes in a paranormal investigation, the ghosts hunt you....

    Story
    "Enjoyable and scary"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Supernaturals to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version


    What did you like best about this story?

    The suspense and the weaving of the story


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I didn't enjoy the performance very much. The various accents and characters voices came and went and changed, making it confusing. I did enjoy the special effects of the supernatural elements. Very creepy when listening late at night, but the narrator's voice became annoying by the end.


    If you could rename The Supernaturals, what would you call it?

    Summer Place


    Any additional comments?

    I would read this author again.

    "Better than a movie"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Supernaturals to be better than the print version?

    Originally started audio books to listen to and from work. With The Supernaturals I listened to it with every spare moment. I would not be able to do that with a book as I listen to it while I get dressed and drive to and from work. I even listed while I cleaned house. Any spare moment I had to myself I would listen. Audible is the way to go!


    Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listed to any other stories he's narrarated but he did a great job. At times I felt like I was listening to Orson Wells. I loved the way he changed voices for each character and even added sound effects.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Supernaturals and why?

    Most memorable character I would have to say was John Longhorn, he just stood out more even as a character in a book.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was better than a movie, I loved that the descriptions were so vivid I could imagine what was being described. I loved that it actually had a plot, great characters and kept you wanting more. Would love to find more stories like The Super Naturals.

    "A fun ghost story"
    What did you love best about The Supernaturals?

    This is a good old fashioned haunted house ghost story with colorful characters and beautifully narrated by Jeffrey Kafer.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I guess it was the house itself.


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

    He's nice to listen to.


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

    no, it's pretty long. I spread it out over several days and looked forward to it every evening.


    Any additional comments?

    great book to take with you on vacation!

    Story
    "cluttered and unrealistic"
    What was most disappointing about David L. Golemon’s story?

    The fact that no matter what happened to the cynical nonbelievers, no one ever behaved in a realistic manner. If they started out skeptical, they REMAINED skeptical even after seeing specters, temperature drops of 30 degrees at time, and herds of angry forest creatures attacking out of nowhere. This is not a realistic character trait.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narration was okay. Not blown away and not irritated or annoyed.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Supernaturals?

    I agree with previous posters: cut the booming doors and all the television politics.


    Any additional comments?

    Not my favorite audiobook. Had potential in the story, but derailed by mediocre writing and definitely overdone.

    Story
    "Decent beginning of a series"

    This is a well-constructed and told "ghost" story. The scary moments are well-executed and the story moves along very well. If I had to deduct any points it would be because the final resolution to what the author built up to fell a bit flat.

    This book stands well on its own, though it seems to be written to set up a series. That would be fun to see, but I am glad the book doesn't need any sequels to feel complete.

    "A good ghost story!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would....I thought it was a good listen...I haven't listened to the book "Hill House" (if there is one) I did see both movies tho, and this story was VERY similar.


    What other book might you compare The Supernaturals to and why?

    As I just stated..."Hill House" if there is such a book....because it was very similar.


    Which character – as performed by Jeffrey Kafer – was your favorite?

    They were all very well done.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    A few reactions....laugh...mad....happy!

    "Had me on the edge of my seat."

    This was one of those stories that I wanted to listen to every free minute. It was just scary enough to keep you alert but not drive you off the road! I truly enjoyed every bit.

    Story
    "Excellent Production"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Supernaturals to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely. This is one of the few audiobooks that I have listened to whose production style use of sound effects on voice actually enhanced the creep factor. The narrator had a wonderful pace that kept the tempo appropriate with the goings-on in the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It had fantastic character development and dialogue. I felt like it was very organic and witty. I was really impressed with the narrator's ability to change the tempo of his speech to better capture the fast talking city people, or the methodical cop personas.


    What about Jeffrey Kafer’s performance did you like?

    Wonderful!


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

    Yes. I drive quite a bit, in Los Angeles no less. I have learned that if I listen to audiobooks I can avoid all traces of road rage, simply because I don't care when I get to my destination--It's Story Time! I was sad that I went on such a short road trip with this book because I had to stop on a moment of suspense.
