I absolutely love haunting stories but this was horrible! I really don’t understand all of the positive reviews. It wasn’t scary at all. It was incredibly slow. This family with several children stayed in a haunted house for a very long time even though they were literally being raped by ghosts. Absolutely ridiculous!
I will be returning this one.

It’s the summer of 1960 and in the small town of Elm Haven, Illinois, five twelve-year-old boys are forging the powerful bonds that a lifetime of change will not break.

But amid the sun-drenched cornfields, their loyalty will be pitilessly tested.

The story took forever to get going.. My mind has never wondered so much during an audiobook before. I'm still not sure if the protagonist was an ancient Egyptian God, a spider, a vampire, a ghost or an alien.. :/ the reader was good though.. Also extremely annoying that every 2 to 4 minutes the book shut off and I'd have to restart it.

Nothing ever changes in Sanders. The town's still got a video store, for God's sake. So why doesn't Eli Teague want to leave? Not that he'd ever admit it, but maybe he's been waiting - waiting for the traveler to come back. The one who's roared into his life twice before, pausing just long enough to drop tantalizing clues before disappearing in a cloud of gunfire and a squeal of tires. The one who's a walking anachronism, with her tricorne hat, flintlock rifle, and steampunked Model A Ford.

So I almost didn't buy this because of the first couple of bad reviews. I'm glad I didn't listen to them because I really enjoyed this book. It may not be Peter Clines best work but it is not bad. It was very entertaining. The story was original even though it was about time travel. As for the narrator, Ray Porter is one of the best and one of my favorites! Don't pass this up because of a couple bad reviews.

The ancient alien AI they nicknamed Skippy is apparently dead, and even if they can by some miracle revive him, he might never be the same.

I highly recommend this series but don't start with this book or you'll be lost.. Start with the first one.

I must say, this series is coming together very well. I liked this even more than the first. I thought I had it all figured out early on and was thinking "how predictable" but I was wrong. Some nice surprises that I hadn't expected and I'm enjoying the character development but ugh.. The cliffhanger that we love and hate! How long will we have to wait to find out what will happen to (I can't say to whom or it will spoil it) ..?
My only problem is that the killer of Clint's wife and daughter may not go to trial because there is only circumstantial evidence. I don't understand how that can be as his wife and daughter were killed right in front of him. He's an eyewitness.. Hmm.. Maybe I missed something.. Hopefully we'll learn more about this in the next book.
As for the narrator, I can't help but really enjoy his crisp clear voice. He does a good job with all the different characters. He has a good cadence and I really appreciate that.
I do recommend this book.

Eve Hardaway, newly single mother of one, is on a trip she’s long dreamed of - a rafting and hiking tour through the jungles and mountains of Oaxaca, in southern Mexico. Eve wanders off the trail, to a house in the distance with a menacing man in the yard beyond it, throwing machetes at a human-shaped target. Disturbed by the sight, Eve moves quickly and quietly back to her group, taking care to avoid being seen. As she creeps along, she finds a broken digital camera, marked with the name Teresa Hamilton.

This book was great! Thrilling and suspenseful. I really thought the main character, Eve, was going to turn out to be a wimp but she wasn't and I was rooting for her. The story wasn't predictable at all, which I liked. I honestly wasn't sure of what would happen next or if Eve would make it or not. Yea, I recommend this book!

I was surprised by this book. I wasn't sure if I'd like it but I did. I liked the characters and the story flowed nicely.. Until the very end. I was rather disappointed with the last chapter. It seemed like a hurry up end. At least I think it was an end. I'm not completely sure if there is supposed to be a book 2. I hope so.. The story still seems unfinished. Too many loose ends that need tied up.
As for the narrator, I really like her. She does a great job and her voice is pleasant. I would recommend this title to others. I was thoroughly entertained. I also know that if my thoughts keep returning to the story when I'm not listening, then that's a good sign. I was given an audio credit for this title in exchange for an honest review.

An extraordinary debut novel of love that survives the fires of hell and transcends the boundaries of time. The narrator of The Gargoyle is a very contemporary cynic, physically beautiful and sexually adept, who dwells in the moral vacuum that is modern life. As the book opens, he is driving along a dark road when he is distracted by what seems to be a flight of arrows.

This book is so thought provoking.
The main character is burned horribly. During his recovery, he meets a very mysterious woman who tells him some of the most unbelievable stories of her life and the lives of others.
The authors ability to weave an intricate tale of intertwining and captivating stories, is the best that I've ever listened to.
The narration is perfect. All of the many voices and even the foreign languages are absolutely flawless.
This is, by far the best book I have ever listened to.
My only wish, is for the author will continue writing.
