Publisher's Summary

Barry and Maureen have just been approved as tenants by the Association. Pity they never read the fine print on the lease. It could be the death of them....

The Association did not disappoint.

if you love Bentley Little, you will love The Association. In my opinion, not as good as The Store, but very very good.

ridiculous, but still scary

The author flew past believability with Stumpy, but it was still a good read. I think everyone has a distrust of homeowners associations, or anyone telling them what the can and can't do on their own property. This book takes that theme to a scary extreme.

Boring beyond belief

I'm a patient reader/listener. I prefer my horror atmospheric and slow to build, think M.R. James or H.P. Lovecraft. This is not slow to build, it's glacial. Rather than filling that time building a rich tapestry, this is just mundane detail after mundane, everyday detail with very little progression in the story.

Incredibly for such a poor book, the narration is top notch. The narrator puts the type of effort into distinct voices for various characters I associate with the best in the business.

Narrator is good just not for this book

I had a difficult time remembering that the main couple were not elderly. when specific references reminded me that they were actually a younger couple ready to start a family, it would change my view of situations. The narrator wasn't bad, he just sounded much older than the anyone was meant to be. it's a great story and would have been so much more enjoyable if the right narrator had been chosen.

Was expecting so much more!

I am a great fan of Littles' books! But, this book just does not make the cut. It was so dull that I can even see it in my review! Oh well on to the next read.

So many emotions.....

This story made me feel so many different emotions, from happiness to disgust and all in between. I absolutely recommend to anyone that loves a good horror story!

I wish I could unread this. Just plain terrible.

Without a doubt, the worst book I have ever, ever read/listened to. The book defies all logic and there is no payoff. What an epic waste of time and I honestly wish I could unread this God awful book.

one of his best

As a long time Bentley Little fan I enjoyed this very much and in fact would consider it one of his very best by a long shot. The story is gradual in build up but I found the twist and turns very well thought out.
