Publisher's Summary

Ron and Jessica Stahl are a power couple from California, on a Christmas holiday in Colorado. When they stop for the afternoon in sleepy Lone Cone, they're charmed by the quaint tourist town. But the folksy hospitality will vanish as the sun drops behind the mountains. A winter storm is approaching, and the Stahls couldn’t have picked a worse night of the year to get snowed into this perfect little town with a dark, dark secret.

    Story
    "One that's been told before"


    I can't help but feel disappointed. I was expecting something more, something different than a story that's been told 100 times and hasn't changed much. This town was described almost exactly like the Wayward Pine town. The whole sacrifice to keep the town profitable & free of disease thing just isn't original any more. I thought Blake would have an original way of telling this story. I love his work but not this one.
    The narrator was great so it was easy to listen to. Would I recommend it to someone? Maybe... Depends on if they've already heard 20 other stories just like it. I mean I listen to & read every zombie, survivalist, apocalypse book I can find and many of them have reoccurring themes.

    Story
    "Just Over An Hour"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Perfect Little Town to be better than the print version?

    Oooops, I never did 'read' Perfect Little Town, only listened to the audio book.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Stone Man - (Luke Smithard) I'm listening to it right now.


    Have you listened to any of Eric G. Dove’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I just looked through and it seems this is the first by this person.


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

    Not 'extreme'. It somewhat reminds me of an old Twilight Zone script.


    Any additional comments?

    It's only just over an hour long. But I can say I'm happy with it. I can see it being a Made For T.V. movie. I'd watch it. I mean don't expect intensely developed personalities and so on. But for what it was it's alright.

    Story
    "What Happened Blake? Did you get hand cramp?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story. Gosh, it started out so well, but then it turned to mush.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Probably another Blake Crouch from this genre. I go through A LOT of audio books and listen to many different genres, but BC keeps popping up for me. Usually he is really engaging.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Eric G. Dove?

    Yes


    What character would you cut from Perfect Little Town?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    So, this is a short story. I have purchased all of Blake's books and most of his short stories because sometimes I just want a quick fix of thriller. He sometimes goes too far into gory details for me, but I really like his twists in difficult situations and he has blazoned my mind with some thrilling scenes, so I'm prepared to overpay for these short stories.

    Unusually, this story just ebbed out like a whimpering, injured idea. WHAT HAPPENED? The story was going along so well and I was genuinely curious to know what the main character would do when he got out alive...and then a sloppy, lazy PG ending. Urgh, what a shame. WHAT A SHAME. If you're reading this and are considering one of his shorts, the *69 short story is really great, much better than this one. This one started out great but prematurely ejaculated. I AM SO ANNOYED BLAKE. SO ANNOYED.

    "What's?"

    This was not bad but had more potential to be great. It kept me interested but the end was like...huh?
    There is a message but that's about it
    I guess I expected more from this author. Not worth a credit though.

    "Fun, quick read...worth it"

    Short story can be be slipped in quickly-traditional Blake. Good, scary and well developed for being so short ..... Ed is a good narrator for Blake.

    "Not impressed."

    It was boring. The story was pretty predictable. It kept from one story to another with obnoxious numbered short paragraphs
