The White Forest | [Adam McOmber]

The White Forest

Young Jane Silverlake lives with her father in a crumbling family estate on the edge of Hampstead Heath. Jane has a secret - an unexplainable gift that allows her to see the souls of man-made objects - and this talent isolates her from the outside world. Her greatest joy is wandering the wild heath with her neighbors, Madeline and Nathan. But as the friends come of age, their idyll is shattered by the feelings both girls develop for Nathan, and by Nathan’s interest in a cult led by Ariston Day, a charismatic mystic popular with London’s elite.

Publisher's Summary

Young Jane Silverlake lives with her father in a crumbling family estate on the edge of Hampstead Heath. Jane has a secret - an unexplainable gift that allows her to see the souls of man-made objects - and this talent isolates her from the outside world. Her greatest joy is wandering the wild heath with her neighbors, Madeline and Nathan. But as the friends come of age, their idyll is shattered by the feelings both girls develop for Nathan, and by Nathan’s interest in a cult led by Ariston Day, a charismatic mystic popular with London’s elite. Day encourages his followers to explore dream manipulation with the goal of discovering a strange hidden world, a place he calls the Empyrean.

A year later, Nathan has vanished, and the famed Inspector Vidocq arrives in London to untangle the events that led up to Nathan’s disappearance. As a sinister truth emerges, Jane realizes she must discover the origins of her talent, and use it to find Nathan herself, before it’s too late.

    "Forgettable book great narration"

    I will be honest with you I listened to this book right before I went on vacation and now a week and half later there is not much I remember about this book except that the narration was great. So that should say something right?

    This book grabbed me right away with its atmosphere and gothic feel, and then towards the end lost me. I liked Jane’s story …

    Above are the only notes I made other than about the fabulous narration.

    So I went back and looked at other reviews and synopsis’ to try to jog my memory but honestly I just remember being a bit disappointed in the ending, as I said it grabbed me right away then let go and I think that is where my memory of this book ends. It seems I liked the way the author wrote so I would try another one by him. I also seem to remember being disappointed with the reveal of The Empyrean and the whole love triangle (if you even want to call it that) but really that’s about all I remember about this story. So I will stop trying to remember and just say give it a try it does have great atmosphere and maybe I just read it at the wrong time, the narration alone is worth the listen!

    Susan Duerdan’s narration of this book was fantastic, all of her characterizations, accents and pacing were spot on and were consistent throughout the book. She did a great job at bringing this book and characters to life including a young French boy, along with the many other characters effortlessly. She has earned a spot on my list of narrators I will get on audio instead of paper book.

    "Slap the crap out of the reader. She wrecked it!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I loved the synop of this book. Unfort. when I began it the reader put me off so much I never finished it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    that I really wanted to hear it!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susan Duerden?

    a-n-y-o-n-e


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    can't say


    Any additional comments?

    Now I have 2 readers I won't buy books because its' their performance.
