Your fear is their entertainment... Andrew's life is one of bored contentedness: a teenage daughter, a faithful wife, and a middle-class job. He even has a Mercedes. His life is without drama, and the comfort of middle-age is setting in. That all changes when he refuses to buy a pack of cigarettes for the local gang of youths. Led by the emotionally unstable, and sadistic, Frankie, the gang target Andrew and his family in an escalating campaign of terror and violence that threatens their very lives.

What did you love best about ASBO?

It grabbed me right from the start and only got better as the story progressed.

What other book might you compare ASBO to and why?

I think Housemates is similar because it grabbed me from the start also. It was not a true story as far as I know but it gave me the same sense of horror and dread. I love the Author and Narrator!

Have you listened to any of Nigel Patterson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to 1 other book by Nigel Patterson and he is fantastic in both! I love horror but I am going to explore different types of books just to listen to Nigel Pattersons voice. He uses different voices for each character and he is able to put the correct emotion in his voice that the character is feeling. I am watching a movie just by listening and getting tons of exercise too since I listen only when walking.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to this book in 2 walks! That was over 20 miles in 2 days just so I could hear it all!
