Another fine tale from Mr. West!

What did you love best about The Him Deep Down?

It was written by Terry M. West and as always Terry writes a fine tale of horror.

What did you like best about this story?

Entertaining from beginning to end.

Have you listened to any of Julie Hoverson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I did at times find her voice to be kind of nerve wracking. I believe a male narrator would have been better. But that's my opinion and you know what they say about opinions.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I listened to the whole thing from beginning to end.

Any additional comments?

The voice actor was very talented despite the times I found her to be a bit nervy.

The Evil Deep Down

Did not see this story going the way it did. I really enjoyed the turn that this story took. I loved the characters because I really didn't like any of them. They were dark and evil and totally creeped me out. Andy was the beacon of light among his group, but just couldn't shine bright enough to out shine his brother's darkness. Sunserea, understanding the darkness deep inside people, harnessed it in a way that you wouldn't expect from a little old lady. Truly a dark and twisted story.

Julie did a great job with the narration. I liked her different voices and the accent and tone she had for Sunserea. She really brought the down South tone to everything.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Well worth the small investment of time

What made the experience of listening to The Him Deep Down the most enjoyable?

It was a well-done story that, while not exceedingly long, manages to pack in a fair bit of storytelling. The narrator's performance took me a few minutes to get into, but once I did I completely enjoyed her work.

What other book might you compare The Him Deep Down to and why?

Hard to say. I don't read a lot of books like this.

Have you listened to any of Julie Hoverson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I had not heard this narrator before. Her performance was enjoyable and immersive. She did extremely well with the material.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and probably could.

Any additional comments?

The author is a friend of mine and honestly that's why I read the book. Having said that, he does a wonderful job telling "another zombie story" that really isn't. The closest comparison I can make is the Walking Dead comic. The zombies are a prop for telling a story about people. Well worth your time and money.

Ugly, Stark, and Almost Perfect

Short and brutal, befitting a realistic zombie tale.
Downside: It's short. Upside: It's delightfully dark. I wish it could've gone longer, but I also can't see that adding much to the story. It's how a story should be told: long enough to tell the story you need, but not so long as to dilute its intensity. Well done, Lutzke and West.

Different Kind Of Zombie

I was given this book for free at my request and I am providing this honest review voluntarily.

A zombie apocalypse & a few survivors find that it's better to ask before you take & manners are very important in a zombie riddled world. One finds out that sometimes you need to stop protecting someone that's absolutely wrong, even if he's your brother. A lesson is learned, just because someone is old doesn't mean they are weak!

I really liked this story & wish it was longer! Really original story too with the zombie element.

The narrator did great with the voice of the old lady & the story telling narration, but the male voices lacked sounded forced to much. She did great with the southern draws too!

I definitely recommend this book!!

Creepy Postapocolyptic Tale

I received this audiobook in exchange for my honest review.
A delightfully dark tale of a time when zombies have taken over after an apocalypse, but also a tale of family ties and deep devotion. Excellent narration and a few unexpected twists to the story add up to a great spooky listen when you are short on time. This reminded me of "The Walking Dead" TV show when it was still good, and not over played out as it became in the later seasons. If you enjoy spooky and dark, this book is for you!

Creepy apocalyptic short story

Great creepy, gory, interesting apocalyptic short story. Enough details to get invested, but not distract from the story. The narrator did a great job.

Not that good

I had high expectations but they were not met with this story.

The characters were predictable post apocalyptic survivors.

The racial overtones were unnecessary and made what happened seem OK.

This was very predictable and the story could have been better with a few twists.

The narration was fair but seemed like it was being read rather than being acted.
