Situated in a beautiful setting abutting the Balarang waterways and located on an acre of natural bushland, this three-bedroom country home is full of promise, character and potential. Featuring private access to the many splendours of Balarang Creek, this idyllic property is perfect for anyone seeking fresh air and serenity.

Nostalgic for childhood summers a world away from his manic Melbourne life, Dave Johnson purchases a secluded house in a postcard-perfect coastal town. A savvy investment, he convinces his wife. One year on, and his seaside dream has turned into one big headache, with his tenants not paying rent, and now simply vanishing into thin air, leaving all their belongings behind. Summoned back to the house to inspect the abandoned property, Dave and his wife Lisa become trapped in the isolated spot after their car breaks down. Spooked and alone, they become lured into investigating what really happened to their mysterious tenants.

Another interesting story lost.

Story could have been good we're it not for needless profanity & crude descriptions. Are people really wanting to hear about tampons, bleeding and ruining pants, and turning the great gift of language into something vulgar and crass? Maybe people now have lowered their standards that much, but I truly hope not.

Was it haunted? Who knows

What a good read! It definitely had me looking around a few times though lol definitely worth listening too especially if you're in the house by yourself and love being spooked! The ending was really good as well.

I’m not into ghosts and exorcisms, not for me. The narration is good, but not enough to keep my interest.

If you don't believe, you should

One of those stories where you want you yell at the characters, to warn them, to say, "don't be stupid "! Excellent performance.

Oh my God. This book was brilliant. It was absolutely FULL of suspense all the way through. Because I listen to sooo much audio books, I've become hard to please but this story is excellently written and brilliantly narrated. Bravo, Bravo.....more, more, more please.🙏👏👏👏

Good performance- better ending

This is one of the better stories I have listened to on audible- the performances were really good. Without giving anything away I felt the ending could have been better.

Classic scary house set piece

I really enjoyed this freebie. Beautifully read by the actors whose voices I loved. I was genuinely scared at points and had to switch off as I was in bed! It kept me hooked til the end.

Wowzers

Not my normal kind of book and for me it was in what I would call “horror” although it wasn’t. A really excellent story that kept me gripped. I tried to anticipate what would happen but I got that all wrong. A brilliant audio book!

I hate this book. Here's why:

It's late at night and I still have to go pee, but now I'm too spooked. Nice job, authors! Also, I will surely check out other work of these writers, because a) the writing is really good and engaging; and b) who needs sleep anyway? Good night!

Glad I got it for free

Story moved quickly and was very well narrated but the plot and characters were insipid to say the least. Glad I didn’t have to pay for it!

Must Listen! A+

Psychological thrillers make for intoxicating audiobooks and Still House does not fall short. Luke Arnold’s gravelly voice draws the listener in with a nuanced characterisation of Dave’s tension and insecurity. The contrast of Sibylla Budd’a crisp elocution and impassioned narration brings Lisa to life. A nod to the lonely Australian landscape counterposed to the picturesque coastal holiday dream, this story of Still House is one you cannot miss.

Umm...

Performance was great, story was at best... mundane.

Saw the issue and outcome miles away, listened to Christians other book "the wife and the widow" that book was something else entirely, this book, at best, must've been nothing but a pay day.

Great psychological thriller

I loved Still House! Great story line that did have me guessing a fair bit and really sucked me in, and actually had me on the edge of my seat in a few places. I loved how the tone of the book kept shifting - is a crime story, is it supernatural? The performances were outstanding! I've never listened to an audio book with two performers and this worked so well to narrate the male and female chapters. I thoroughly enjoyed this.

I'm really enjoying these short novellas by Christian White. Love the supernatural element that is usually explained by twist. Keep them coming!

Brilliant!

Engaged me right from the start. could not stop listening. Short but action packed. not for the faint hearted. A bit disturbing and I found it scary. Very gripping read. Narrators did an outstanding job. cant believe this was a free read!
