Publisher's Summary

The chilling follow-up to The Three, Sarah Lotz's "hard to put down and vastly entertaining" debut (Stephen King).

Hundreds of pleasure-seekers stream aboard The Beautiful Dreamer cruise ship for five days of cut-price fun in the Caribbean sun. On the fourth day, disaster strikes: Smoke roils out of the engine room, and the ship is stranded in the Gulf of Mexico. Soon supplies run low, a virus plagues the ship, and there are whispered rumors that the cabins on the lower decks are haunted by shadowy figures. Irritation escalates to panic, the crew loses control, factions form, and violent chaos erupts among the survivors.

When, at last, the ship is spotted drifting off the coast of Key West, the world's press reports it empty. But the gloomy headlines may be covering up an even more disturbing reality.

Day Four is a heart-racing tale from "a ferociously imaginative storyteller." (Lauren Beukes).

Slow... very slow.

I'm going to come clean right off the bat; I'm only around half way through the book. That being said, I feel like I could have jumped into the story right where I'm at and wouldn't have lost anything. The story is taking an agonizingly long time to develop, and the parts that are supposed to be "creepy" never really seem to hit that mark. Most of the content comes across as if I'm overhearing an incredibly uninteresting and mundane conversation held between people I couldn't care less about. As it progresses, I've found that those mundane conversations are becoming more and more annoying and hard to listen to. Right now I'm really struggling with finishing the book.

Review by a former cruise employee

I downloaded this book because I read a review by Stephen King, saying it was scary. This book started really slowly. It kept my attention, though, because I am a former Cruise Ship crew member, who was fortunate to not have tragedy strike while I was aboard. I didn't find the book scary. At all. I was confused in the last few chapters, only guessing the ending seconds before it happened.
The characters were relatable-I'm sure I worked with a few of them! The disaster protocol sounds genuine. The crew's behavior was...interesting. No ship crew I worked with would behave as such, however, it adds an element of hopelessness to the story.
I was disappointed in the narrator. She did a good job with inflection and changing her voice so I knew who was speaking. However, Ms. Rawlins obviously has spent no time with any Filipino person, nor did she Google the correct pronunciation of Tagalog (which is tah-GAH-lowg, not TAG-ah-log) or the correct pronunciation of some of the names.
I need to re listen to this book, to see if I missed any scary parts; since I listened at work, that is a possibility.

it was ok.....not as good as The Three

I think the use of multiple narrators worked really well in the Three, and while this reader did a good job, it would have been better with not just one reader for every character. I liked the ties back to the three, and the subtle horror that characterize both books. with that being said, I found the three to be much more creepy than this book and the characters more throughly explored and relatable. I was a little bummed with the ending. ...it was pretty much the same conclusion as the three, but less interesting because we have already seen it done. I think I would have liked this book more if I hadn't already read the three. it is probably still worth reading, if you have the time.

Very Entertaining

What made the experience of listening to Day Four the most enjoyable?

Great characters, great story and very easy to get into. The story moves fast enough to keep you entertained and wanting to listen.

Truly disappointing.

First time I've been compelled to write a review. I listened to this book based on Stephe King's recommendation on the jacket cover (note: it turns out the quote is referring to Sarah Lotz's first book). I found there to be no redeeming characters, the plot was plodding and pointless, and frankly made little sense. I'm not sure what parts other listeners felt creepy but adding a lady in white or the presence of a mysterious child on an adults only cruise is not horror in my book. I really wanted to like this book but it just never went anywhere. I understand leaving readers with some mystery as to what's happening but I feel like the writer also has no idea what's going on and that leaves me feeling cheated. On a side note, I've listened to over fifty audible books and the narrator of this was by far the worst. She handled the female voices adequately but really struggled with the male characters and goodness, the Indian security guard accent? I'm always listening out loud on my iPhone as I work around the house and for the first time my wife asked me to wear headphones.

Worth a listen

Great structure, nice payoff at the end but I was expecting a little more having read a few reviews. A good listen, the narration was great. I just wish there was a little bit, just a tiny bit more of a twist.

Fun book with an interesting plot

Yes it's kinda of obvious but then it's not. The performance is one of the best I have ever heard. The narrator has an unlimited separation between each character.

I read this because Stephen King did, and I'm glad

Are the passengers going nuts? Are they all actually dead? Are they crossing back and forth between dimensions? How can people be such jerks? How can they not figure out what's going on? Why can't *I* figure out what's going on? This book kept me guessing until the very end. It wasn't confusing or contrived, and the pace kept building until the end.

I read a review by favorite author Stephen King, and I see now why he enjoyed the book so much! It's unusual and interesting, and I certainly recommend it!

Great story but not so great narration

Great story but the reader does such a horrible job at male voices that it is almost distracting. It'd be 100 times better if they had a male reading those parts
