Publisher's Summary

There's something in the house on Kenwood Drive, and it only comes out at night...

College students Eric and Lydia are looking for a novel way to spend Halloween. They decide to put together a documentary about the supernatural and take a camcorder into the long-abandoned house on Kenwood Drive. It's said that a vengeful spirit lives there, and Lydia thinks it the perfect location.

Eric, though, has his reservations. Having grown up in the area, he's familiar with the stories of the spirit they call the "Upside-Down Man", and as their trip to the house draws near, his fear begins to mount. According to the rumors, once you go into the house, you bring the Upside-Down Man out with you. And in three days' time, you disappear.

When the two of them begin to see and experience strange things, they launch into a frenzied search for truth, attempting to separate the myth of Kenwood House from the reality. But it turns out that untangling the threads of local legend is more difficult than it appears.

Especially when you've only got three days.

    "Whispering Corridors"
    If you could sum up Whispering Corridors in three words, what would they be?


    Just like all scary movies, he goes in....and now they must pay the price. This is a very scary audiobook. Look forward to the next.

    "Good, spooky story"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a good story that gave me what I expected - young adults behaving the way they do in horror movies, mysterious deaths, scary tension, a sense that the clock is ticking. Some readers were dissatisfied by the ending, but the only qualm I had about the ending was 'why not upside down'? (anything more about that question here would be a spoiler). I could easily see this play out in a movie, which was what I was looking for when I started listening to the book.

    I've listened to Joe Hempel narrations before and I think he does best when the hero character matches his voice and tone; here, it did. I could easily picture our hero the way the author described and consistently with the narrator's tone of voice.

    I wouldn't want the story to last any longer than it did; it was a good horror fix and I was interested to see how it would end...

    I provided this review in exchange for a complimentary copy of the audiobook from the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "A scary ghost story and a great narrator"
    Any additional comments?

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

    Lydia convinces her friend Eric to go to the Kenwood house on Halloween to film some images for a documentary. Eric is reticent to go because all kind of dark tales surround this house, which has been abandoned for years. There they say the upside down man inhabits, waiting for his next victim, which will be haunted for three days and on the third the upside down man will come for them.

    Even though I do not like paranormal elements in books where this does not fit, I do enjoy a pure ghost story now and then, especially if it is a good one, like 'Whispering Corridors'. Ibsen did a great job building up the tension and creating the right atmosphere. Even though it is not a long book (just over five hours) we have time to know the characters. It is true that we do not know a lot about them (in fact we know more about Lydia, even though the book is written from the point of view of Eric), but their conversations, actions and descriptions bring them to life. There are very powerful images evoked in this story, which help to set the mood and believe in the wickedness of the house.

    Reading other reviews, I see people complaining about the lack of closure. I did not feel this. My only complaint would be that some thing towards the end were kind of predictable and I felt like screaming to Eric since he was not getting some of the things.

    The book is narrated by the wonderful Joe Hempel. Let me tell you this: if you find a book narrated by Joe Hempel, even if it is not your favorite genre, go for it. He will make any story shine, and with a good one, the result will be superb. He is unique transmitting emotions and interpreting characters. He makes you live the story.

    I enjoyed this scary ghost story, and it is a fairly quick listen. I would recommend this one if you enjoyed 'The Blair Witch Project', since it is partially based on it and it is also mentioned a couple times in the book.

    Yet another great book by Ambrose Ibsen!! This is the fourth book I have listened to and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a great ghost story that had me hooked from the beginning. I can't wait to listen to more books by Ambrose Ibsen!! The narrator did an amazing job with the book and characters.

    Story
    "Beware the House"

    This audiobook was given to me by author, narrator or publicist in exchange for an honest, unbiased review

    Two college kids decide to explore a haunted house. They've been warned to stay out of it for fear of danger. They decide to go in anyway. What happens? Will they survive? Listen to find out.

    Joe Hempel did a great job of telling this story. He's a strong performer with clear, articulate diction. He's able to give an eerie performance enhancing the story. Well worth the listen.

    Story
    "A better boogie man"

    I really loved the story! So much so that I listened to it all in one sitting. The reason I gave a 4 instead of a 5 is that I didn't feel it wrapped up the ending as well as it could've. I have a love/hate relationship with cliff hangers. But I really hope there will be a second book. I loved that the name given to the mysterious entity in the book, "Upside Down Man". I loved how the author took the idea of "what if an urban legend turned out to be completely real". A very freighting thought. I'm glad that the author created its own character with its own mythos. Kept it fresh and new. What a fun spooky adventure that was!

    Any additional comments?

    Ambrose Ibsen and Joe Hempel are two of my very favorites and they definitely don't disappoint with Whispering Corridors! This book is a classic ghost tale about some well meaning college kids who make poor choices and get hooked up with a demonic spirit. Ibsen always does a fantastic job of spinning a unique and spooky story and the 'Upside-Down Man' ranks up there with the best of the creeps. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fun ghost story! 10/10

    "Loved It!!!! Hooked from beginning to end!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    From the very first chapter I was hooked! Very scary stuff. I actually had a very bad toothache the couple days I was listening to the book. But not once during the book did I think of it or anything else except the story. It held my complete attention the whole time. If you like haunted house stories this is for you. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who wants a quick scare. I was given this book by the author for an honest review in return.

    "Creepy Ghost Story"

    I love anything with creepy/ghost stories and this is no exception. I have read his entire thriller/ horror stories also recommend the Ulrich Files. The title is a little deceiving, it is about Eric and Lydia’s encounter with a shadow called the upside down man and everything happens to them, it was creepy! I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. THANK YOU!
