Publisher's Summary

Paul Tremblay, critically acclaimed author of Disappearance at Devil's Rock and A Head Full of Ghosts, adds an inventive twist to the home invasion horror story in a heart-palpitating novel of psychological suspense. 

Seven-year-old Wen and her parents, Eric and Andrew, are vacationing at a remote cabin on a quiet New Hampshire lake. Their closest neighbours are more than two miles in either direction along a rutted dirt road. 

One afternoon, as Wen catches grasshoppers in the front yard, a stranger unexpectedly appears in the driveway. Thus begins an unbearably tense, gripping tale of paranoia, sacrifice, apocalypse and survival that escalates to a shattering conclusion, one in which the fate of a loving family and quite possibly all of humanity are entwined. 

The Cabin at the End of the World is a masterpiece of terror and suspense from the fantastically fertile imagination of Paul Tremblay.

Premise for a good short story...by another author

Intriguing start. Good family, who are home-invaded by a group who could be trying to stop the end of the world, or are just a bunch of zealots. The most excruciating Audible book I have ever listened to. A bare narrative, it had a mass of unnecessary detail and repetitive dialogue, which made it boring. After 30 minutes I fast-forwarded chapters, listened for a minute or so and still kept up with the plot (!) so you might appreciate how padded it is. I'm planning on returning it for a credit.

Narration is just awful

Honestly the worst narrator I’ve experienced with Audible. Perhaps it’s a little unfair as the narration was so awful I couldn’t really give the story a chance.

Dreadful voice.

Could not finish the book and only managed 1 chapter because the narrator's voice was boring and not very clear. I'I'm sure the book is riveting and will have to actually read it instead.

very annoying narrator

The narrator has a bad habit of bringing her pitch down at the end of each sentence. It makes you feel as if each sentence was recorded separetly.
I had to force myself to endure her reading to get to the conclusion since the story itself was very interesting and suspenceful. SPOILER ALERT..... Ultimately I could have saved myself the hassle since this is one of those make up your own meaning or conclusion endings... I was dissapointed and frustrated with that... I hate it when you are left hanging at the end of suspence novels or mysteries.

Narration does not suit story

The monotonous, robotic delivery spoiled it for me. I could not focus on the story.

Talented writer. But i feel this story would have been better at half its length

Grippingly horrible - great “read”

I fully enjoyed listening to this story.

Making discussion along with the main character, crying and hoping for a silver lining

Worth a read

Possibly the worse narration job ever recorded.

Amy Landon's narration was so bad she sounded like a computer generated voice you find on those crappy YouTube videos.
Some of the character's voices sounded like robots with no care as to where pathos or any kind of nuance needed to be.

Just don't bother

This is terrible. Amy Landon reads like a robot. I got so bored by Paul Trembley's writing. Just don't bother.
