Publisher's Summary

From newcomer Jordan Crouch and Blake Crouch, author of the runaway best seller Run, comes Eerie, a chilling, gothic thriller in the classic tradition of The Shining and The Sixth Sense.

Trapped inside a house

On a crisp autumn evening in 1980, seven-year-old Grant Moreton and his five-year-old sister Paige were nearly killed in a mysterious accident in the Cascade Mountains that left them orphans.

With a frightening power

It's been 30 years since that night. Grant is now a detective with the Seattle Police Department and long estranged from his sister. But his investigation into the bloody past of a high-class prostitute has led right to Paige's door, and what awaits inside is beyond his wildest imagining.

Over anyone who enters

His only hope of survival and saving his sister will be to confront the terror that inhabits its walls, but he is completely unprepared to face the truth of what haunts his sister's brownstone.

Amazing!......Until

Would you listen to Eerie again? Why?

Yes, I think that it was a very interesting book with dark secrets. It was very suspenseful until the really bizarre ending. It wasn't a very satisfactory ending for me because of how strangely everything was explained. the narrator was very talented and played all the characters well but the ending was just didn't do it for me. Other Crouch books are better and this is possibly my least favorite but I still recommend it.

Very very strange

I wouldn't discourage anyone from reading this book, but it's just so odd. In typical Crouch fashion, he reroutes you in the middle of the story to a direction you didn't see coming. But it's almost like someone wrote the first half of the book and another person wrote the other half. Unlike his other books, you can't really imagine "what if this really did happen?" Instead I found myself thinking, "did they go back and add the father character at the last minute just so they could use the
ending they wanted?"

Eerie.. not so much.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Not if they frequently listen to horror books. Although mysterious at the beginning , became predictable .

What other book might you compare Eerie to and why?

With Blake Crouch, Or Konrath novels. You roll your dice and win 50% of the time.

What about Karen Chilton’s performance did you like?

I enjoyed the narration. Great range to articulate the different characters. No pauses.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending was very sweet . Gave me a tear or two.

Any additional comments?

If in the mood for an original idea, I probably wouldn't recommend. Overall a enjoyable listen, despite my previous remarks.

Suspenseful

Enjoyable read. Not my favorite Blake Crouch book, but still worth listening to.. Ending was interesting, but somehow unsatisfying. ~JTC~

Wow, just wow!

What just happened? Pretty much what you'll be saying more than once throughout this book. This is unlike anything you've read before, and that is a good thing. A great book, a great story. I'll let you decide about the ending. I'm still trying to wrap my head around it.

Awesome story, unexpected resolution

Eerie was in fact Eerie. Love the plot, characters and overall development. Only down side was the choice in narration. If the main character is a man, I prefer the reader to be a man. Narrator though has a very pleasant voice, but in some chapters if sounded as though her nose was stuffed up and that was a bit distracting.

Probably would work better as a cable mini-series

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would turn it into a cable mini-series. In the novel format, I had trouble staying interested. None of the characters really resonated nor did I have a sense of the world the story took place in but as an episodic television show there are plenty of places to leave the viewer with cliffhanger. In the right hands, this property would be better in the visual media.

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

I would have made this a smaller subplot in a bigger world. A building block of a larger story instead of a story within itself.

What does Karen Chilton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She was a very good voice actress for this story. Her voices were distinct enough most of the time that I knew who was speaking.

Was Eerie worth the listening time?

It was okay. If you are a fan of some of Blake Crouch's other work, you're probably going to want to listen to this one no matter what the reviews are but I would say this is a lesser Crouch work.

Any additional comments?

The story was interesting enough, if this is your first Blake Crouch novel you might enjoy it more but after reading Pines and the Thicker Than Blood trilogy, there isn't enough world creation that I look for in my fiction.

Not my favorite

I generally love the books by Blake Crouch, but this story seemed to start out with a great premise, but fell flat at the end. The narrator was not a good fit for this story. Her tone, while easy to listen to, makes the characters shallow and whiny. There is no emotional attachment, and more importantly, there is nothing to indicate fear.
