"Due handles the potentially unwieldy elements of her novel with confidence, cross-cutting smoothly from past to present, introducing revelatory facts that alter the interpretation of earlier scenes and interjecting powerfully orchestrated moments of supernatural horror that sustain the tale's momentum....[Due is] a writer who grows better with each book." (Publishers Weekly)
I'm an avid audible book listener. I am a huge fan of supernatural books and like stuff that is scary but well written. I live in Denver Co
I loved her writing. I'd read something by this author again.. You feel like you can see the story by her words and the narration is lovely. More spooky than scary.
I've never read or heard Due's novels before, however after finishing The Good House I am an instant fan! Due's writing is clever with fantastic character development. Robin Miles does an amazing job narrating this spellbinding book. The only negative I can find about the book and narration is that it ended.
The story was good up until the final chapter. The end was cheesy- story would have been better if it ended without the last chapter.
I love well written books and moving narrators! I am a realism SCI-FI buff. I find non-mushy romance intertwined in a story appealing.
Tananarive is one of my most favorite authors! This is the first book I read of her which has led me to read them all! The story will take you along for the ride of your life. Well written and full of suspense!
The complex character development and intricate storyline that was able to surprise me over and over.
Yes, It was not predictable
The emotion of a well read story brings you in rather than feeling like an observer
I got this one in the sale for cheap, but is well worth a full credit. It made me feel like Stephen King could have written it under another name- it was that good.
I am addicted to Audible! I spend many hours listening while knitting or bonding over a great story with my family.
This book is a great read! The story is well paced and kept me interested from start to finish. The characters are well developed, which is not always the case with supernatural thrillers. As an added bonus, Robin Miles brought this story to life with her superb narration. She gave each character a unique voice and made me believe that they were real. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes this genre!
Good story. Probably missed a point or two the first listen so I would enjoy listening again to get the full affect of the author's plot.
Love the way Ms. Miles reads with the passion of a stage production.
Typically, I listen to my audio books only while driving. This book I listened to in the car, in the kitchen preparing dinner as well as while I did my general house cleaning.
I selected this book specifically because Robin Miles was the reader. This is the second audio performance of hers that I've heard. She is a master performer!
I would consider it
A bit mindless but okay to pass the time during a commute
Keeps you on the edge of your seat. Never sure what may happen next. Loved how it went from present day to past history.
Art killing his child. Did not see that coming.
She breaths life into the book. It is almost like seeing it.
When we learn of Angie's past. What she went through after her son's death.
A truly fantastic listen. Highly recommend!! I will be looking for more from both the writer and the narrator.
I would and, in fact, have recommended this audiobook to several friends. Frighteningly spectacular-that is the way in which I describe this novel. While it is not actually a horror story, there are elements of terror that go beyond ghosts and zombies. True evil can live within anyone if given the chance. Tananarive Due is an exquisite writer of mystical, sensual, and intriguing stories. I would like to read more about this little family, perhaps the story of the main character's grandmother and the experiences that lead up to what happened in this story of 'The Good House.'
