Publisher's Summary

The chilling first novel by filmmaker, composer, and graphic novelist Leopoldo Gout, performed by actor Pedro Pascal (Narcos; Game of Thrones)

Ghost Radio reminded me of early Stephen King. The story sticks with you long after you’ve finished the final page.” (James Patterson)

From the cramped bowels of a dimly lit radio station, Ghost Radio is beamed onto the airwaves. More than a call-in show to tell scary stories about vampires and poltergeists, Ghost Radio is a sanctuary for those sleepless denizens of the night, lost halfway between this world and the next.

Joaquin, the hip, melancholy host, sits deep in a fog of cigarette smoke, fielding calls from believers and detractors alike. He is joined in the booth by his darkly beautiful girlfriend, Alondra, and his engineer, Watts. Soon what began as an underground cult sensation is primed to break out to mainstream audiences. When a huge radio conglomerate offers to syndicate the show and Ghost Radio becomes a national hit with an expanding legion of hardcore fans, neither Joaquin, Alondra, nor Watts is remotely prepared for what is about to happen.

When Joaquin notices a curious and troubling phenomenon, he is inexplicably drawn further and further into the terrifying stories he solicits on the radio. As he slowly loses control over his reality and finds himself unable to distinguish between the real world and the world populated by the nightmares on Ghost Radio, he’s forced to confront his past and his own mortality in order to repair the crumbling wall between the living and the dead.

Great narration, mediocre story

I hated every single one of the protagonists in this book. Joaquin is a whiny edge lord try hard. His girlfriend is written in a stereotypical "men writing women" way and there's a lot of male gaze in there too.

But Pedro Pascal could read the iTunes terms and conditions and make it sound good and interesting - he's the only reason I made it through this book.

Very Intriguing

Very well written with a very unique style in telling the story. There were a few times I found myself lost but the writing would always back itself up and give me the hints I needed to keep up. The ending surprised me, which is unusual since most stories today follow a formula that few deviate from. I recommend this one. The narrator sounded very convincing as the main character and kept me interested along the entire length of the story.

Pedro makes it

Okay story that was elevated tremendously by Pedro Pascal's lovely narration. The story seems awfully scattered at first, but eventually the threads come together in unexpected ways.

waste of time & credit!!!

This was a waste of time & a credit! Slow moving, no plot, no ultimate pay off to make listening to hours of drivel worth it. I kept waiting for the story to pick up and to make some sort of sense, but it never happens. Save yourself the tedium and the regret of wasting part of your life on this snoozer.

Loved it!

Awesome book! A cool mix of radio-show with paranormal activity, the author has managed to create a fast paced story that’s creepy and thrilling, sort of like an early Stephen King. Still have chills thinking about it! The audio is fantastic. Pedro Pascal’s narration added wonderful layers that really brought me into the story.

WOW the ending!

I very much liked the flow of the stories. Mr. Pascal's voice is extremely soothing and I enjoyed his different accents to the various characters. I would recommend this audible to any one who is fascinated by the upside down. I gave all 5s because I wanted to listen twice to get details I missed the first time around 😉

Great read!

This fast moving paranormal thrill ride was enjoying from start to finish, Very smart and culturally insightful it harkens back to early Stephen King. Ghost Radio takes you to a scary creepy place and leaves you there for a while!

Brilliant

Hypnotic, gripping and brilliantly performed. I really enjoyed the build up of reality slipping and it was written in such a way you felt yourself becoming increasingly dazed and confused with it.

An eerie tale to keep you up at night....

Best enjoyed with headphones in the dead of night, this ghostly tale comes alive through the deep silky tones of Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal. Ghost Radio combines a gripping over-arc story dispersed with chilling calls from the stations listeners. Venture down this dark tale at your own peril.

Slow story saved by the narrator

Confusing story that might be better on paper as it jumps all over the place, from location to person. Picked it as I love horror/spooky stories and because of the narrator. Pedro does an excellent job voicing the characters differently but was let down by the writing. I wonder if he was as confused as I was when reading it

Terrifying and thrilling but ultimately a bit dumb

Pascal narrates this book so well! The story builds up nicely though it is a bit confusing at times. Had to go back and rehear sections because I lost track of which character had the POV. The ending was a massive letdown bur I thoroughly enjoyed the rest.

Intriguing story

The narration by Pedro Pascal on this novel was flawless, engaging and a pleasure to listen to. The story itself was very well written with a weaving storyline that crossed from sci fi to classic Stephen King horror as well as through space and time.
