Publisher's Summary

It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime, a final adventure before settling down.

After a perfect start, Daniel and Laura's travels end abruptly when they are thrown off a night train in the middle of nowhere. To find their way back to civilization, they must hike along the tracks through a forest...a haunting journey that ends in unimaginable terror.

Back in London, Daniel and Laura vow never to talk about what they saw that night. But as they try to fit back into their old lives, it becomes clear that their nightmare is just beginning...

Follow You Home is a chilling tale of secrets, lies and deadly consequences from the author of #1 bestsellers The Magpies and Because She Loves Me.

    Story
    "Dare to go into the house and face yourself"

    Daniel and Laura are a young couple undergoing a trip of a lifetime before settling down to a life of domestic bliss. Their plans however are brutally disrupted during a train journey in Romania and the discovery of something so terrible that it threatens their sanity and even their lives.
    This is a tightly plotted drama that steers off the predictable route. I expected this to be a ‘stalker in the woods’ type story but it is actually mainly set in London and depicts the couple’s struggle to return to some sort of normality. Mark Edwards is proving to be very good at writing grippingly paced thrillers based around very ordinary and likeable people. Admittedly the plot stretches to being a bit far fetched in places, but this is more than made up by the truly horrific situation it describes and the excellent twist at the end.
    James Langton delivers a sound and subtle performance and I would be more than happy to listen to him again. Overall I thought this was thoroughly absorbing from start to finish and was one of those stories that was very difficult to tear myself away from.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Follow You Home to be better than the print version?

    I haven't seen a printed version of the book, but I can say that the narrator's voice was fantastic and can lull the visual imagery of the story as if watching it on screen.

    "Annoying"

    The story should have been a good one but I found the characters annoying and a bit pathetic. I didn't really feel much if any empathy with them. This wasn't helped by the narrator who I found very irritating. I did finish it but had guessed the ending and was glad to get to the end. Not one I will repeat and won't be looking for another by this author or narrator I'm afraid.

    "Irritating narration"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not. The story started off well, but didn't really go anywhere, and the narration was irritating.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Not putting on silly fake 'foreign' accents or squeaky girl voices for the different characters.


    Did Follow You Home inspire you to do anything?

    No

    "Unusual story for me."

    Not normally the sort of book I would read, however I found it a good read. Was a bit confused as to why the people didn't report the incident, but that it the whole point of the story.

    "A true work of art"
    Where does Follow You Home rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Excellent, a really terrifying page turner.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Follow You Home?

    The ending was a total surprise.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The cottage in the woods with the babies made me quite emotional.


    Any additional comments?

    Daniel and Laura choose to go on the trip of a lifetime before planning to settle down in the UK and start a family. They end up on a train in Romania where a sequence of events that are for the most part out of their control, take them down a spiralling path to great horrors. When they return to England, neither remains untouched, and their lives are changed forever.
    This is a disturbing horror with a fast-paced structure based on tension and fear. The characters are flawed in all the right ways, making them realistic and three dimensional, and the events that unfold are timed to perfection leaved the reader completely chilled to the bone. The twists that happen periodically throughout the book are unpredictable, leaving me to believe that this novel is a true work of art. I highly recommend this book.

    This was certainly a well thought out tale, with great characters. It did 'go on a bit' though, leaving my mind wandering at times. I feel it would have been better with tighter editing.

    "Worth a read or listen"

    A decent suspense novel, but the ending was somewhat lacking in impact, and the epilogue seemed like it was thrown in last-minute. Also, it almost seems like, about half way through writing the story, the author decided to change the story from a supernatural suspense into a simple suspense\mystery. While still a good novel, i was somewhat let down when all the build-up toward a supernatural bend was forsaken for a logical, albeit ridiculously far-fetched, answer. Worth a read, but probably not a novel i'd read twice.

    "One of the worst I've listened to so far"

    I was suckered in by the reviews...this story was terrible! The characters whiny and pathetic and unlikeable. What they "see in Romania" isn't the worst thing in the planet and I kept waiting for there to be something else....a clue as to why the poor, rich, privileged & emotionally frail Laura was such a basket case! The story is so convoluted and implausible and the narrator sounded like he was falling asleep half the time.
    The big mystery was easy to figure out and the end was absolutely silly. The author resorted to a final twist! Surprise! Which made me hate the character more.
    Ridiculous story.
    Move on, pick another book! You'll be glad you passed this one up.

    "Not good"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I don't know - a sensible plot? A plausible explanation of events? Ten less chapters?


    What could Mark Edwards have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I started out enjoying the book, but about half way through it became tedious. I got lost in the details of who did what to whom. Why some of these things were important? It was TOTALLY impossible to believe the ending.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of James Langton?

    He did a fine job.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment that I wasted so much time listening to it.


    Any additional comments?

    I hate to hurt authors' feelings, but just have to share these comments.

    Story
    "LOVED the start…. HATED the ending!"

    A story that eludes to unspeakable horrors, hints at dreadful experiences and promises a big shocking reveal really can’t live up to that immense expectation.

    What on EARTH could possibly be THAT horrific??? You try and imagine what it could be based on the snippets of detail and the slow reveal, but as the story moves on and your imagination takes over at a certain point nothing can compete with the scenario you’ve already concocted in your head. A three-headed wolf monster with sharp teeth and razor claws? A factory that makes curtains out of human flesh? A laser-eyed demon that eats tourists and drinks their blood for desert? WHAT! WHAT! WHAT!

    It was an anti-climax. If the expectation-bar wasn’t set so high, the House of Horrors in the Woods would have been much more shocking. As it was, it barely resonated above an: “oh, ok, yeah, bad…. wait… didn’t I just see this on CSI?” and certainly did not match anything that would explain all that post traumatic shock our protagonists suffered.

    The intriguing start of the story had me hooked and kept me guessing, I thought I was in for a great page-turny-thriller…. but sadly it was not to be. Once the truth was revealed, the tale veered off into ridiculous territory that would not have held my interest no matter how well the story started.

    In a nut shell, I just thought it was dumb.

    Don't have time to read so am avid listener of audio books. Was hooked from the beginning. Come on, a night time train ride in unfamiliar territory with strange passengers portends a "something wicked this way comes" scenario! And, in my opinion, did not disappoint! Boogedy boogedy!

    This was a great book. The story line doesn't play out as expected but It had a good ending. The author ties up most of the loose ends while leaving the future to the imagination. The narrator did a nice job giving each character a bit of personality.

    "Exciting mystery"

    Another good mystery from this author. Love the narrating also. I would love to tell you more about this story than I should but don't want to spoil it.
    A British couple go on holiday to Romania. By train. They are not married yet and still excited by each other's company. They meet another couple who suggest that since they are tired, to go sleep in one of the sleeper cabins that is empty. When they are awakened by the Romanian police they cannot find their passports and are thrown off the train. What they stumble onto in their walk to the next town is a mystery we learn about as the story unfolds, and the best secret is saved for last. Read it, or better yet, listen to it.

    "Gripping from start to finish"

    I have read (listened to) several books by Mark Edwards now and I have enjoyed them all. Follow You Home has to be his best one yet! I literally could not stop, switching between reading and listening to the audio when I had to go out (Thank you Whispersync for Voice inventor, I love you). I finished this book in half a day. The plot was not what I was expecting at all. Totally unpredictable, it drew me in right from the start. It's creepy, tense, mysterious and fast-paced. Excellent characterization.
    Narrated expertly by James Langton, awesome job.
    Highly recommended if you're looking for a suspenseful psychological thriller with a unique plot.

    "STAY HOME!!!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, the book was to long and drawn out. It seemed as if the author just added ideas to his book just to fill it.


    If you’ve listened to books by Mark Edwards before, how does this one compare?

    I haven't and I won't. I'm sorry, but his voice gets on my nerves.


    Did James Langton do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, to a degree, the way he describes "the mood, and the dress" of some of the characters.


    Did Follow You Home inspire you to do anything?

    Not to take any overseas trips and if I do NEVER FALL ASLEEP (unless my passport is in between my legs!!! )


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, started out with good storyline, however it got "choppy." I think there were too many characters, and scenarios going on at once. For instance, Laura's mom and dad didn't need to be in there.
