Publisher's Summary

After the success of his first novel, John Krik has struggled to come up with a follow-up that his fans would eagerly gobble up. On a spur of the moment decision, John leaves his suburban married life to spend six months in an abandoned house in the quiet eerie town of Cafeville, where secrets lurk in every corner. The towns’ biggest source of gossip is the Greens who live right next door. 

As John attempts to put his finger on what it is about the house that has everyone steering clear, he finds himself captivated by the seductively charming Eva Green, who is as dangerous as she is irresistible. A gruesome story begins to take form in his mind.

As the lines between fiction and reality become blurred, something sinister emerges from the shadows and demands to be heard.

Loved this!!

John Krik had a very successful first novel but has been struggling to come up with something since, so his editor tells him to go stay at a house he owns in Cafeville by himself and hopefully get some inspiration. He agrees to spend 6 months there, leaving his wife and son at home, and see what he can write. But the house in Cafeville has some secrets and John is about to find some of them out.

I loved this!! I was a little worried on starting it because a lot of the reviews say that it's confusing, but I was captivated by the story and absolutely loved it. As with a lot of this authors' previous books, this is a slow burner and needs to be savoured to fully enjoy it.

It does take the plot a while to get going, but I found that it just amped up the tension for me. Seeing John and how the lines between reality and the book were blurring for him, and the change in him just made it more suspenseful and the anticipation made me listen to this in one sitting!! When his wife comes to stay with him, it really started getting creepy and I was on the edge of my seat to see what would happen!!

In all, this was awesome and I'm glad I went into it with an open mind because I thoroughly enjoyed this. I liked the characters, I liked the setting and I really liked the story.

Once again, Jake Urry proves himself as a masterful narrator. His voice can really capture a creepy atmosphere and his performance made this book all the more better. He has an amazing array of voices and tones and I highly recommend you check out his work.

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Interesting, but confusing.

The narrator did a wonderful job. The story was interesting and I liked it. But, it was also confusing. With the characters, you'll ask yourself, who, how, what, why, again, did this occur. I figured it out, but doing so, I had to go back and re-listen to a few chapters. That's the reason I gave the story only 4☆s, because in my opinion, I shouldn't have to do that. All in all, I do recommend this book.

Listen To Me Johnny Boy.

John is keen to get out of his writing slump. So his publisher finds him the perfect place to stay. With no distractions only the house has other plans. It's starting to leave a unpleasant odour and act strangely. I really enjoyed listening to this book. As the narrator done a good job with the story telling. The only small thing that bugged me about this book was there was too many bonus scenes at the end of the story. They seemed to go on forever.

A slow burner that is full of atmosphere

My guilty pleasure is reading paranormal/ horror novels. I adore this book as it's such a slow burner and takes a while to get going ( but please dont let this put you off) the wait just builds the atmosphere and anticipation . The author has an amazing way of describing things that really captures the readers imagination. This is one of those novels that you think I will just read one more chapter and you turn around and realise it's the middle of the night but you still dont want to stop . The narrator was absolutely perfect for this book and his tone was brilliant. He had a way of really drumming the words into your brain . i was given this book by the author /narrator in return for an honest and unbiased review

Suitably scary

Listen to Me Now is a well written, suitably scary story. John Krik, his wife, Karen, Hank and Jean, The Greens, in fact all the characters are well developed and highly appropriate for the small town setting of Cafeville. I think it was the smell that helped to make this story horrific, very clever really, writing about a smell in such a way that the hairs on the back of my neck stood up. I was thinking about that whilst I was listening; that an author must be very talented to describe a smell so eloquently in words that upon hearing it read, I was quite revolted! Of course the real piece de resistance of this book is the narrator, Jake Urry, who's performance scares the bejeesus out of me before he's got further then the end of the introduction. Mr Urry turns in a performance that is such a perfect fit for the genre of this book it's almost as if they were destined for each other before conception. A slightly shorter listen than I normally like still manages to fit in a great story and some brilliant bonus scenes. Thrilled to recommend this audio book, but my advice is to listen in the daylight. You can thank me later!
