The Neighbors | [Ania Ahlborn]

The Neighbors

Welcome to Magnolia Lane. It’s not exactly a little slice of heaven, but in the backwater town of Creekside, Kansas, it’s the best a jobless supermarket clerk like Andrew Morrison can do. After sacrificing a normal childhood, a decent education, and true love to look after his alcoholic mother, he’s finally breaking free and living his own life — but in the squalid house he’s sharing with a former childhood friend, the living isn’t exactly easy. Plus, there’s something about the chipper, all-American couple next door that’s just downright creepy. However, that doesn’t keep Drew from accepting a job as their handyman — or surrendering to the wiles of perfect housewife Harlow Ward, a woman who always gets what she wants. Drew, like a string of hapless young men before him, doesn’t realize he’s dancing with a devil — one dressed to the nines in high heels and pearls.

    "INTERESTED UNTIL THE LAST CHAPTER...IT FELL APART"
    What did you like best about The Neighbors? What did you like least?

    I LIKED THE STORY BUT I WANTED TO FIND OUT WHAT WAS GOING ON HERE. I DIDN'T. I DON'T LIKE STORIES ENDING LIKE THAT.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I WOULD HAVE A SLAM BAM ENDING IN STEAD OF CHEATING ME THE READER (LISTENER).


    Which character – as performed by Fleet Cooper – was your favorite?

    MICKY....ACTUALLY THE READER SAVED THE BOOK. I WOULD GIVE IT A LOWER RATING BUT THE READER WAS GREAT. AT FIRST I DID NOT LIKE HIM BUT HE REALLY WAS PERFECT FOR THIS STORY. THANK YOU MR. COOPER FOR MAKING THIS BOOK AT LEAST A GREAT PASTIME UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE.


    Could you see The Neighbors being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    YES AS LONG AS THEY CHANGED THE ENDING AND I BET THEY WOULD.


    Any additional comments?

    THE AUTHOR HAS A GOOD STORY HERE. BUT DIDN'T TAKE THE TIME TO FINISH THE BOOK. IMHO.

    "Disappointing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A 4 or 5 star rating would require a complete overhaul of story, characters, and dialogue.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ania Ahlborn again?

    I enjoyed listening to the author's previous novel, "Seed", I will give her next novel a shot but if it misses the mark I'm done.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator's voice for the lead female character was annoying, sounded perpetually pissed and too brisk.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Nothing I can particularly recall at this point.
