Unusual story, didn't see the ending coming. Superb narrator Clare Corbett added greatly to the experience and was entirely without the bizarre vocal inflections that can jar so much when you have someone's voice literally in your head.
I am temporarily without reading glasses so Audible is proving invaluable and has the added benefit of allowing me to get on with other things as I listen. (Does anyone else find that listening in bed works faster than a Mogadon?)
This short story was a free download and based on this I will certainly try another Louise Millar book.
Whilst the reader was fairly good, I found it hard to keep interested. The story is written poorly, with clichés all over the place. There is no sense of character progression. Whilst the writer tries hard to end on a cliff hanger in chapter one, I was just thankful the chapter was over.
This has the potential to be a very good book, but the writer's problem is that is has been done before; a lot. The language isn't strong or detailed enough. Just sounds like a story you'd tell a child when you couldn't be bothered to tell them a good one.
This was a great freebie. The story unfolded and had so many layers. It left you thinking of a myriad of endings and built up to a great conclusion. This was well worth a listen and I would thoroughly recommend it.
My first short and free book from Audible!
I can't say I was a huge fan of this. It wasn't particularly exciting and if it had been much longer there is a chance I'd have put this one down.
To be fair it was easy listening and felt like it had the potential of going places.
I read/listen a LOT, I will try all genre's but I don't necessarily love all genre's. I believe reading expands the mind and imagination.
An interesting little short story but not particularly exciting. Good reader, easy to listen to.
"The author leaves a lot to the imagination"
It was free and I wanted a break before listening to the final 2 of 5 new releases this week. The first three (The Whistler by John Grisham, Livia Lone by Barry Eisler, and Disruption by Chuck Barrett) have been interesting and I have written brief reviews of each. High Heat by Richard Castle is up next (the Nikki Heat series tends to be very light mysteries). The Window Man is one in a series of Killer Women short stories by this British author. The stories are creepy!
was a bit anti-climactic especially with expectations of something bad happening only to be let down. story felt unfinished
"A great Listen"
Really enjoyed it! A nice twist right at the end!!! Pretty clever. The reader has a nice speaking voice as well.
story is very creepy but it was a very quick read would like to read more stories of the author
story ended just as it was getting good. I thought that it was a pause to begin a new chapter but sadly it was the end
but there are pleanty of them out there. written well enough to keep my attention and with my ADD, tjat"s saying something.
Intriguing twist at the end hooks the reader. I'm definitely interested in what happens next!
"very gritty and action pack!"
this is a good but never a dull moment very entertaining. can't stop listening heard the whole audio in the same day... Very suspenseful you will not want to stop listening.
"an interesting one"
well that was cool, the plot twist at the end make me do a double check at everything previously said, I do think she had some problems, dunno if james wanted her ot was troubled by her more likely.
"Successfully presented SHORT STORY"
(Free), Suspenseful, Well Narrated
This is an ensemble of characters. That's how I enjoyed it. If listeners read the descriptive blurb- "pared to the bone" jumps out as being relevant. Not competition for Hemingway. Or Fitzgerald. On that premise, I felt it succeeds.
The therapy session. The meeting with the "Window Man". The snoop through the house.
This is a quick twenty-five minute long suspense listen. It was FREE, but if reasonably priced I will listen to others in the series. I would use an Audible credit IF it were a full length collection / anthology. The voice talent was well done, in my opinion. Pleasant, easy to understand.
