A SHIRT WAS JUST WHAT I NEEDED

FOR A DAMSEL IN DISTRESS SHE SEEMED A TRIFLE BOSSY
Having read two of Laymon's shorter works, this was not what I expected. While it had plenty of bodies being cut up in the first three hours, it was written in a 1800's London style. The writing style took away from any possible suspense and made the horror parts seem almost comical. If this had been a six to eight hour book, I could have hung on, but having to listen to another ten hours, just seemed daunting.

Wonderful Reading

The voice performance is wonderful. The story is okay. Without spoilers, I feel like it often strayed from the elements that make it exciting. Spent most of my time waiting to get back to those elements.

entertainingly

I'm not sure if it was the narrator's performance or what, but this book ended up being both disturbing AND hilarious at the same time!

Awesome story!!

Didn't know what to expect but surprisingly enough, it kept me engrossed until the end. The characters are awesome and the ending couldn't have been better.
