Publisher's Summary

The second, riveting novel from Bram Stoker Award-winner Jack Ketchum, Hide and Seek is a book about games. Reckless, dangerous games. Games you might even want to play yourself if you're with the right people. But shouldn't. Not ever... In a small Maine town, a group of thrill seeking college kids finds a game of hide and seek in an abandoned house turning into a reality of stark terror.

©2007 Jack Ketchum (P)2009 Audio Realms, Inc.

What the Critics Say

"Ketchum writes with economy and power, in sentences that tighten like noose wire. Anyone who enjoys fine, hard horror will appreciate this novel." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Not bad, but not wholly fantastic"

    I thought it was worth a listen, but due to the length of the piece I did not find the price justified.



    I did think the story was a good one and the author did draw you in and make you really care about the characters. He also paints vivid scenes and makes you feel as if you are experiencing some of it.



    However, as a horror, I thought it was lacking that scare factor.

    "Terrible"

    I was so bored listening to this one. Even towards the end where the "action" is was awful as well. Waste of a credit and a waste of my time.

    "Awesome!!"

    Awesome!! At first I did not like the reader's voice, but after chapter 1, I realized that his voice is EXACTLY the perfect one to narrate this story!!

    "Chapter 14+ sooooooooo gooooodddddd!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    This would have been a 5 star had the author left out or shortened chapters 1-13. I have got to tell you, chapter 14+ was sooooooo freakin' good, it just took forever to get there!

    "Not what I expected."

    In a word, boring, if I was reading it, instead of listening while doing other things, I wouldn't have even bothered to finish it. I expected suspense and entertainment but what I got was a slow moving coming of age story that ends in game of Hide and Seek (the last hour and a half). Yes, their are games played throughout but they aren't really the suspenseful, entertaining kind. If you are looking for an edge of your seat thriller, look elsewhere. I do like thought provoking suspense but this wasn't even that. Don't waste your time on this one, even if is only five and a half hours.

    "Turn narration to 1.25 to finish"

    Boring, too much detail, narrator too slow, much better at increased speed. Did not hold my interest

    "Intense"

    I really enjoyed this book as a not too deep entertaining little jaunt like watching a horror movie. The writer creates great visuals and there are a couple of pretty intense moments.

    Story
    "struggled to finish"

    a long start to a quick and disappointing ending. it was a twist, but not what I was looking for.
    I wasn't suspicious enough of the "crazy girl", and so when the twist came it was just "eh", not "wow".

    "Good ending "

    I found the story to be a slow read. I like action from the beginning. It spent to much on the kids stupid relationship.

    "Didn't get it"

    Although the writing style was excellent, it wasn't really a horror story. It was more of a character study with a little weirdness thrown in at the end. Narration was superb, though.

    "Slow moving"

    The book is very slow, confusing and its hard to follow the plot. The Hide and Seek part of the book was the last 2 chapters. If you're looking for a good suspenseful book with a scare. This isn't the book. Very disappointing..
