Publisher's summary

It's a chair that has been passed down from generation to generation. But ten-year-old Joey refuses to go near it - even though it seems terribly important to Joey's father and uncle. Because the chair is part of a family tradition. A tradition in which Joey must take his place-no matter how terrifying...

Very well written psychological horror tale.

Would you try another book from Thomas Sullivan and/or John Feather?

Definitely. This book was very well written, with many layers and subtle twists. The author did a great job in consealing if the chair was supernatural or not, left people guessing and thinking. I was not overly impressed with John Feather's narration.

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

Perhaps I would have given a little bit more background on the chair and it's history and the history of it's previous owners, there was a blurb at the beginning of the book but not too much.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

John Feather did a reasonable job narrating the book; was not the greatest narration I have ever heard but certainly adequate.

Did Born Burning inspire you to do anything?

No, apart from listen to more audio books.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book. It is a well written tale of "is it or isn't it" as regards the chair. There are the classic good characters (Joey's mother), innocent (Joey) and evil (uncle Lucien). Best thing I can say is that I wanted to get to the end to see how the story unfolded.
