    "Great story, poor narration"
    Would you try another book from Michael Bray and/or VOplanet Studios and Matt Josdal ?

    The story was great. It was a story that would be better read than listened. The narrator did not at all capture the suspense or terror of the scenes or the emotions of the characters. The tone of the story was lost in the narration.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was great.


    What didn’t you like about VOplanet Studios and Matt Josdal ’s performance?

    The narrator did not use appropriate emotion in his voice or inflection. He sounded cheerful at times that were intended to sound frightening.

    Story
    "Better Than Average Southern Horror Story."

    Quick review- impressive slightly Gothic Southern horror tale with fairly strong characterization and a well-flowing story that really pulled me in and kept my attention(something that's hard to do). The writer used the "flashback" technique without jarring or breaking the flow of the book which CAN happen if not done correctly. Although Michael Bray does go into some detail about the history of the house/property he never divulges exactly how or why the curse/haunting came to be-at least no explanation I can remember hearing. But that's just a small complaint and really didn't "damage" my enjoyment of the novel. Matt Josdal(narrator) did a very good job with both the male and female characters(especially the old ladies). If you like "haunted house" stories you'll probably enjoy this slightly spooky Southern tale. Worth a cred.

    Love a good mystery (especially a British cozy cottage mystery), action / adventure , and really love a good scary / horror book.

    "Stupid"

    Author keeps using the same wording for different descriptions of things. The characters are complete idiots, shallow, common. He doesn't seem to have any original ideas. Go back to writing class.
