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.

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.

Great Story but...

The narrator is remarkably annoying with some of the voices. A male narrator at the beginning would have done better justice to the characters. Glad I decided to power through.

The Him Deep Down

I enjoyed this short story. I wasn’t as surprised by the way it concluded as I was hoping, but it did end well and how I wanted it to as well. It was fun and I would read more by this author in the future for sure.

A Good Zombie Short!

Story – 4/5
Narration- 3.8/5

“The Him Deep Down” by Chad Lutzke and Terry M. West is about a couple of brothers and some others during a Zombie Apocalypse. They try to take refuge in someones house and things go from there.

Not bad for a short story, as it was more plot than zombies, which I like.

Recommended for a short read or listen!

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!!
