Publisher's Summary

No one in town has ever seen anything like it: a slimy, mobile tube of glistening yellow flesh with dull, staring eyes and an obscene, probing mouth. But the real horror is not what it looks like, or what it does when it invades your flesh - but what it makes you do to others.

narrator could have done better

the narrator was lacking and the way the audio was edited made the story a little confusing at points.

great horror/suspense entertainment..BUT..

i enjoyed the story,characters and interaction..but so much goes left unexplained?Will there be a sequel book?The narrator was okay,but ive heard Maynard McKillen perform better in other audio books!If there is a sequel i hope he narrates again but give him a few shots of tequila to loosen him up lol

Good story, bad reading

The strory was as expected from Laymon. General slasher type stuff with a lot of sexual references. The voice artist was awful though. Poor pronunciation, missed inflections, flat emotion and zero acting. Almost sounded robotic and ruined the experience.

Fast Paced, terrible narration

I first read "Flesh" almost 15 years ago and decided enough time had passed so I could listen to the audio version. For fans of the genre it is classic Laymon, fast paced, little exposition, full of gore and sex and strong female lead.

My biggest issue with this audible presentation though is the narration, it took me almost three weeks to get through as it sounded like the sentences had been computer generated, characterisations were terrible and at one stage I thought part of the chapter was missing as it ended so abruptly. So disappointing and I would definitely not purchase if you're wanting to start listening to Richard Laymon, he will be turning in his grave.

In short a good story ruined by a terrible narration.

Definitely written with fellas in mind!

As a story it was ok. A little on the trite side maybe. The one thing I'm hoping for with the next audio book I listen to (not from this author), is not to hear the word "breasts"!! At all!! With "nipples" running a close second! I'm far from being a feminist, and certainly no prude; but to hear the word at least 3 or 4 times a chapter (at least) is just a little irritating. Could Mr Laymon not have found other nouns to use during his frequent and often detailed descriptions? Ah well - guys you're going to love it!!
