Not too bad

I wasn't expecting too much and that made for a good listen. It's a nice pace book and I enjoyed the narrator.

There are better Bryan Smith books but still good

Would you listen to The Dark Ones again? Why?

Nope. Not that kind of book. Once is plenty.

What other book might you compare The Dark Ones to and why?

Written in a very Edward Lee style. Flesh Gothic springs to mind.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator was the worse part for me. He was too old for the book. It needed a younger narrator. I like Nick Podehl for this. He read The Beginning of the End: Apocalypse Z and had a great voice for a young man.<br/>

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

no

Any additional comments?

I like Bryan Smith. I appreciate that he always writes as an East Tennessean which I am as well. This wasnt one of my favorites by him. The freakshow holds that title

Great book, Great Reading

A good book but was helped a lot by a reader with a voice perfect for this genre. Well worth a purchase.

The Dark Ones

This was a great book ,just some innocent kids hanging around at night with nothing better to do,they come across an abandoned house that as aLot of history.

But that's not all evil lies within they should have kept away!!!!
