Ryan's relationship is already on the brink when a woman goes missing in the small town of Bakerstand. With the whole town on high alert, he refuses to let this dead city kill what's left of his and Zoey's relationship. But, a house in the woods may hold a deadlier fate than the town ever could.

    "Sinfully Good!"

    You might be reluctant to buy an audiobook that slides in at just under 2 hours. It’s understandable because so many short audiobooks never feel like a complete story. This audiobook is the exception to the rule!

    Sin feels less like an audiobook and more like a movie, a really good horror movie. The beginning gives you an idea of where the story is heading, but don’t make the mistake of thinking you know how this story will end. Joe Hempel narrates and does a fantastic job on this fully voiced production. Every audiobook that I have heard with Joe narrating has been a 5 star listen and the streak continues with Sin.

    This audiobook was received in exchange for an unbiased review!

    "Scary Suspenseful Horror Novella!!"

    This is a really great horror novella from Patrick Reuman. Two teenagers planning a Friday night camping trip into the woods. What could go wrong? Have they never watched a horror movie? There is a classmates mother who is missing as well in the small town they live in adding to the drama and tension. The weather turns bad and low and behold there is a isolated house in the woods. Nothing bad ever happens to kids in houses in the woods; well maybe Hansel and Gretel, but any way it is a really well written story with many twists and turns. I loved it.

    The narration is delivered by the amazing Joe Hempel. He delivers another outstanding performance in this fun story. This is a story that will stick with you and his voice will be the one that haunts you when you think of this story.

    I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. Once you get past the high school stuff, the story really picks up. Another fine performance by Mr. Hempel. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

    Story
    "A modern Hansel and Gretel with a special twist"

    I received a copy of this book in audio format from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.

    Ryan and Zoey are a couple of teenage students living in a small and boring town. They need to look for new ways to have fun together so they decide to go camping. The idea may have been a good one but the disappearance of one of their school friends' mother is still lingering in town, so they go without telling the truth to their parents. By simply bad luck that night they get a pouring rain that soaks completely their tent, so they seek refuge in a house in the middle of the woods. But their hosts are not what they seem.

    I have mixed feelings about this one. One one hand it is a good story, and very well executed, with a couple of unexpected twists and the right dose of horror and gore. On the other hand, the fact that Ryan and Zoey just left the tent without checking if their phones struck me as weird, because first, they were at night in an unknown location, and second, can teenagers really forget their phones behind? It is mentioned that they were probably soaked and not working but they never checked. This does not seem plausible to me.

    There was another detail that I found odd, and is the way marking the way they follow. It is a modern version of Hansel and Gretel's bread crumbs. I found this strange and even stupid at first, but it really matches the rest of the book, where Ryan and Zoey, our modern Hansel and Gretel find a house with unexpected consequences.

    My reason to have listened to this book is the narrator. I like Joe Hempel's work so much that it is difficult for me to skip a book that he narrated. Again, I was not disappointed. He has a special talent to transmit emotions, and I think his style works very well for horror.

    Despite the mentioned details, it was a good story, with some unexpected twists that will have the listener thinking for a while after the book is finished.

    Story
    "Wow-I wasn't expecting THAT twist!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Sin to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print version of Sin, though I would expect that I would likely enjoy the audio version better because Joe Hempel really brought the characters to life through his narration.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the twist. It isn't often that books/novellas truly surprise me. This one did. I was driving in my car, listening, and I literally gasped out load at one point. That just made me happy. So refreshing that it wasn't completely predictable.


    Which character – as performed by Joe Hempel – was your favorite?

    I think Joe Hempel did a fabulous job with making each of the characters unique, but I really enjoyed listening to him read the old lady's lines. The voice that he did for her...I could totally envision her in my mind's eye.


    If you could rename Sin, what would you call it?

    I actually think that Sin is the perfect title for this novella.


    Any additional comments?

    I know that this is a novella and thus, shorter than a regular, full sized novel. It was definitely entertaining and well worth the listen. It felt a tad rushed at times, but in the same respect, I don't think that much else could have been added to the story without it being extra fluff.

    "Great Performance of a Twisty Short Story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Sin to be better than the print version?

    Yes, because Joe Hempel does a great job giving life to the characters.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting aspect as the hidden sides of the different people included, while the least interesting was the semi-formulaic way that they were revealed.


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

    As mentioned in an earlier question he provides the characters greater personality, giving voice to them.


    If you could rename Sin, what would you call it?

    It's a fine name for a short story like this.


    Any additional comments?

    Part of me thinks this could stand being a longer story and more fleshed out. It seemed in a hurry to get from step to step, but it was still an interesting read. I received this title for free from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.

    "Unexpected twists"

    A strange but entertaining short story of murder and disturbed minds. The narration in the audiobook makes the twists and surprises in the story come alive. It's seems to be a twisted case of bad guys vs bad guys and it's a toss up as to who will "win" in the end.

    I really enjoyed this horror thriller it was dark and suspenseful. Ryan and Zoey are teenagers who were out camping until it started out raining and sought out refuse in old house then it all started, but wish it was longer. Narration was good. Recommend to anyone who enjoys short horror.I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. THANK YOU!

    Story
    "Great Short with an unexpected Twist"
    If you could sum up Sin in three words, what would they be?

    Don't go camping


    What other book might you compare Sin to and why?

    I'm going to ignore this question. I really enjoyed this short story. Moving along I thought I knew what was coming up and was pleasantly surprised how things turned out. I really would like to see more to come of Ryan and Zoey.


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

    Yes, compared the same. Joe does a great job narrating.


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

    It was short so I did; however, it was fast paced enough that I wanted to know what was coming next and needed to keep listening.
