Elliott Grey refuses to believe. As a top-notch journalist for a Seattle-based magazine, he is trained to have an open mind. But he simply refuses to believe extra-terrestrials actually exist. After a disturbing interview with a man who claims to have been abducted by aliens, Elliott is plagued by nightmares of his own abduction. Terrorized and tortured by entities he cannot understand, Elliot has come face to face with his unbelief. He is a marked man, and he soon learns it is futile to run. There is no escaping the malevolent force that has targeted him. He can trust no one, no thing. Only himself.
What did you love best about Malevolent?
The gradual descent into madness by the principle, which was inevitable, unavoidable, and yet this listener wanted it to stop . The authenticity of all the characters was rivetting and made for fantastic listening.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The tragic/doomed hero was fabulous ,and brought to life by Meral Mathews with authenticity and clarity. Why? He was someone you ended up caring about, and to see harm come to him was upsetting.
Have you listened to any of Meral Mathews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, but I will. Nothing to compare to.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I actually laughed out loud on a few occassion, and had genuine emotions around some of the actions the "bad guys" ended up doing.
Any additional comments?
This is an OUTSTANDING offering, and should be on your "Must Listen" list!
It is somewhat violent, and does have some adult themes, which is all fine as this is an adult book. The characters are well drawn, behave in believeable fashions, and the action , while being somewhat fantastic in nature, is realisitic in its detail.
Only downside is that there don't appear to be other Aubible offerings from this prolific author. I am confident that will change soon after the success of this great book.
