I didn't read the print version, but if it was like the audio version I would be very worried as I had no idea horrific things like this existed.
I could have cried for John. He tried so hard and still things went wrong for him.
Amazing how he did all the characters. I still knew it was him, but each one was different. It's hard to explain unless you hear it.
I made the mistake of listening to it at night before bed. I didn't get much sleep that night...
Everything about it is true and that's what makes it so disturbing. Both the author and the narrator have done an amazing job. I listened to it five times, but I could not listen to it at night.
I felt so, so sorry for the character John. He was an innocent who was caught up in this and ended up losing everything - even his mind at one point by the sound of it.
All of David Ayers audiobooks are amazing. I don't know where this guy has come from, but he has breathed life into all his audiobooks. He is very captivating
I planned to listen to it over a few days, but ended up being so engrossed I listened all the way to the end.
Chilling, to the point and subtle. This was a very human story about a relentless haunting.
I felt sorry for John
This is the first. He was very good.
This story is True...you wish it was not!
Creepy and chilling! Great listen. Should not have listened before bed!!
"Recorded in the kitchen?"
The story was interesting. However, the background noise is ridiculous. People's voices, pots clattering. What the hey?????
"Terrible waste of time"
The story was not captivating at all, and what's with the dishes clattering and all the talking in the background? Sounds line half the recording was done in a cafe near the kitchen. This wouldn't make a 15 second clip on the news much less a future movie. Don't waste your time on this one.
Fun and easy listen. Story is spooky. Love the narrators accent. Some of the events described sound terrifying
"Not For Me But Perhaps For You"
Every October I try to fill the month with scary stories to go along with the Halloween theme. After listening to this one I was sort of let down and at the end, felt like looking around and saying “seriously?
The one thing I can say is, while there were some rather spooky incidents in this story, it really wasn’t high on my October list. The woman struck me as a selfish, narcissistic, ehem. She seemed to have all the family support, all the friends, and didn’t really care that her partner was suffering as well. It could have easily been argued that she was to blame for the whole thing and she showed her true colors in the end. Shame on her! Also, if you are looking for high-quality narration, keep looking. I believe this guy felt he was making the story more interesting with a bit of background noise to differentiate between characters but he does make several mistakes while reading the story and has to go back to correct himself. Overall, I was left feeling sorry for the guy, wanting to smack the self-centered girl, and wondered about the rest of the story that was not part of this book. Having said all of this, if you scare easily or just want something we could call, “scary-lite”, this is your book.
"Not much to enjoy here."
no one. It really did not offer much to the reader. I was disappointed. Waste of money.
I am not sure
no problems with performance, the story line had nothing much to read about
Really, is this all???
Very good story. Would highly recommend, especially if you are into paranormal or ghost stories. This goes beyond just the normal "bump in the night" tales and digs deeper into how hauntings can affect relationships.
I am glad I was found this gem of a book.
"Interesting story, decent narration"
Quite a spooky tale. The narrator's accent, although one I'm unused to hearing, seemed to fit well with the locale of the story.
The device of alternating narration--reading of the transcripts of interviews, I believe?--was a difficult one to parse and narrate, but it worked reasonably well. The narrator's pacing is nice and even, and he is easy to understand despite his unfamiliar (to me) accent.
I wouldn't say I had a favorite character, but I was impressed with the narrator's ability to differentiate between different characters speaking, especially since there was no discernible break/chapter title between switches in point of view, other than a pause.
I really disliked the use of sound effects in this recording. It appears that the narrator attempted to differentiate switches between the two characters' points of view by adding some sort of background to the man's part--it sounds like a coffee shop or restaurant, dishes clanging, people murmuring, etc. It was quite unnecessary and distracting, since the narrator was already doing a good job of suggesting the different voices by making his voice/inflection smoother when the lady was speaking and a bit more forceful and jerky for the main guy. Even the secondary characters each had their own distinctive voices. He did a great job with that, and the cheesy sound effects are unneeded and annoying.
