Publisher's Summary

Sometimes even the deepest, darkest secrets find their way to the surface...

Summer 1956

Thirteen-year-old Willie Compton and his younger brother Leonard stumble upon a mine shaft while hiking the hills of Park City, Utah. The shaft is unsealed, abandoned. While Leonard stares at the hole in wonderment, a Slinky he's been flipping back and forth between his hands slithers through his fingers, tumbling toward the mouth of the shaft. Leonard bolts forward, reaches out to grab it, but he slips, then he falls.

Present Day

Up-and-coming filmmaker Melody Sinclair stirs in her chair, nervously awaiting the debut of her film at the Sundance Film Festival. Based on a true story, Bed of Bones tells a tale of murder, shining a big, bold light on Park City's tragic past. A past that's about to revisit the present.

    "unfortunate narration"

    I'm not sure if the poor review is due only to the narration....or if the story was sub-par as well. I found it so hard to listen to, that I may not have given the story a fair assessment.

    "Not very original."

    The narration hurt the listing experience. I think the book would have been easier to finish had some one else been reading it.

    "Review"

    Great book. Reader was awful.
    Seriously needs some voice and acting lessons before attempting another read. Voices weren't believable. Inflection distracted from story.
    Will read More in series.
    Liked story very much. Did not expect ending.

    "Skip the Audio"
    What did you like best about Bed of Bones? What did you like least?

    I liked the plot, I very much disliked the audio performance because she didn't seem as if she did more than read the book and insert a few inflections for the various characters


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    In every way. I think if I were to simply read the book I would have liked it much more. The narrator came across to me as one that should have been targeted for a young reader. She wasn't able to change voices well for the other characters, and had very little range attempting to make those distinctions.


    Any additional comments?

    This isn't my normal genre, and I've not read or heard any of the other books in this series. I was hoping for more from the performer

    "Narration made it difficult to endure"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. Difficult to listen to with the terrible narration.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Good ending, liked the twist, but too much lag time to get there.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Crystal Sershen?

    Anyone else would be an improvement.
