Publisher's Summary

"Fear the living, fear the dead, fear the Unspeakable."

Kenning Hall was more than a country home, it was the family's sanctuary away from the frenetic pace of London, until that day.

What happened that day was so horrifying, so devastating, that the place was left to ruin, until now.

A decade later, 32-year-old Rupert Harrison, the only surviving heir to the Harrison publishing dynasty, has ordered Kenning Hall restored to its former glory.

It's time to go back.

Now, if you think you've heard this story before, think again. This is just the beginning.

Something is waiting at Kenning Hall. Something vengeful, malevolent, and it will follow him home.

This book isn't creepy, it's downright terrifying. Be warned: Daylight will not save you.

    Story
    "Eeriness to the max :O"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would without a doubt, it's perfect for curling up on a grey day and feeling the shivers creep up on you.


    What other book might you compare Unspeakable to, and why?

    I think I would compare it to something like The Ghost by Robert Harris. Though different in genre, Unspeakable is also full of mystery and sinister twists throughout.


    Which character – as performed by Matt Addis – was your favourite?

    I would say Elizabeth is best performed, her shrill, cruel and capricious nature is truly captured under Matt's performance.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Don't look back."

    "Thrillingly scary"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Most definitely will do that,and have done so already.


    What other book might you compare Unspeakable to, and why?

    Dan Brown's Da Vinci code same pace and action,with chills.


    What does Matt Addis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I must say this... I have a very good imagination,but Matt brought the story alive,I felt as though I was partaking in an on screen thriller.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was and I did,a listen fest carried it with me everywhere so I could listen and needed to know what was going to happen next.


    Any additional comments?

    The wisest spend of my hard earned cash,I enjoy reading with a passion,but if listening is fashinonable then "Unspeakable" audio is the new black.

    Story
    "Listener's delight...or should that be...defright."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Unspeakable to be better than the print version?

    I found the print version to be a thoroughly enjoyable read, one which I easily gobbled up on my lunch breaks at work. But when I found the audio version to be available, I knew I had a to give it a try, and sure enough my experience was intensified, a classic supernatural thrill!


    What other book might you compare Unspeakable to, and why?

    I can't, off the top of my head, think of any books that run close to this one, however I will say I can perfectly envision this to be a film. It is a unique and refreshing mix of stories and lives, accompanied by suspense and terror, that made it such a great read and listen!


    Have you listened to any of Matt Addis’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I haven't as yet, but you can be sure I will certainly be looking out for his other works. He has that measured tone and execution that makes him so easy to listen to!


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

    It made me frustrated, it made me curious, it even took my breath away - there is a particularly chilling scene (one I don't want to give away) which filled me with a sense of dread. I went through a whole spectrum!

    Story
    "Creeptastic!"
    Where does Unspeakable rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It came as no surprise to me, considering I loved reading this book, that the audiobook would automatically rise to the top of my most loved audiobooks. Sometimes a book can be slightly ruined by transitioning into audio format, whether that be due to the narrator or quality, but Unspeakable certainly was /not/ one of those books. It enhanced the atmosphere already present in the story, and brought every goosebump and hitch of breath to life, I loved every single second!


    What other book might you compare Unspeakable to, and why?

    Though it it can be compared to a twisted Sherlock in its eerie mysteries, or a Dan Brown book with the quick pacing and unfolding of event after event, I can definitely say that Mr Marturano's Unspeakable is an individual star.


    What about Matt Addis’s performance did you like?

    As previously mentioned, I have read this book before. So Matt played a great part in rekindling my love for this book. Hearing it aloud emphasised the true mystery and fear in every chapter. The carefully measured and nuanced narration created moments that built the tension sky high, only to shatter your nerves when the tension was broken, and then - in quieter parts - he kept me hanging on every word, wanting more and more. A perfect execution of how I imagined the audiobook to be.


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

    Those who know me know that I have a very strong sense of wanting to justice for people, so when certain characters got the "justice" and peace that they needed, so to speak, I was definitely cheering out loud. And I'm notoriously a scaredy cat who can't stay away from things that freak me out, so it definitely gave me those fearful watery eyes and had me expressing a few expletives at the scarier bits!


    Any additional comments?

    If only this would now become a film or tv series, I'd be very pleased! Thank you to Mr Marturano and Matt for creating such a fantastic piece, an especially enjoyable audiobook in October!

    What a great book, my wife listened to this first, and recommended it to me. I was definitely not disappointed! Full of excitement and sinister chills, with the passionate bond of Rupert and Ashley running in-between. It was just the right mix for me!

    Story
    "Reminded me of an author from my youth."
    What made the experience of listening to Unspeakable the most enjoyable?

    The fact you do not have to put the book down,means you can sail through the adventures of the characters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Each individual character,had distinct personalities,you either loved or loathed,but you could not remain indifferent,they provoked and prompted you into listening to what their story was.


    What does Matt Addis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Matt added pathos,and drama,brought the characters alive before your very eyes and literally your ears.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "See no good,feel no good,speak all evil"


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened and read this book,but the audio made it seem like an entirely different book to me personally.Matt's narration added a new dimension very enjoyable.

    "Terrible"

    Gave up a few chapters in. Was this written by a spotty adolescent? Over egged sex scenes. Over winded drivel. With a further 14 chapters ahead I decided to bail as life too short.

    "disappointed"

    I had such high hopes for this book but it was such a let down. started good and grabbed my attention, but, I kept waiting for something spooky to happen but it never did. I feel cheated of the hours I invested into this snoozy tale.

    "Terrible !"

    Sadly, this was perhaps the worst, most disjointed book Ive ever listened to.
    It doesnt know what genre it wants to be !
    As Im sure Mark Addis is a very talented individual, he was not the right choice to read this .
    I will not be Purchasing anything else written by this author.
    Sorry....just not for me.

    Story
    "Ice Cold Thriller!"
    If you could sum up Unspeakable in three words, what would they be?

    Thrilling, chilling, killing!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the way it wrapped you up into the nitty gritty of the lives of each individual in the story, and yet managed to drag them all together into this gruesome tale!


    What does Matt Addis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I feel he adds an extra atmosphere to the book, he is the perfect narrator, adding and subtracting emotion or tension where it needs to be, and handles the demands of the text very well!


    If you could take any character from Unspeakable out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would take Rachel or Ashley out to dinner because I find them to be the kind of women you absolutely root for in life, they have wit, grit and determination and they are very endearing characters for me.


    Any additional comments?

    If only this could become some kind of series!

    "Slow but fantastic"

    I loved the book but at first I was concerned that I hadn't purchased a horror novel. But then the good stuff came along. I hope he writes a second one...even a prequel about Ashley's life before Rupert and maybe through in how the hell Jason got Rachel to drop everything for a dick like him.

    "Not really what I was expecting.. ."

    Struggled to finish, had a lot more romantic scenes than I am accustomed to reading in a horror novel. Really couldn't get into the story and had to jump ship fairly early in the book. If your looking for some serious erotica mixed in with your ghost story, this maybe perfect for you. Nevertheless, l just wasn't feeling this one. 2 **'s

    "Nope...not for me."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I can't give an answer to that. The people that wrote all the glowing reviews really liked the book. However, I tend to agree with the people that wrote the negative reviews.


    What was most disappointing about Tony Marturano’s story?

    I'm looking for a supernatural story line here and I'm listening to rough shower sex.


    What didn’t you like about Matt Addis’s performance?

    First time listening to Matt Addis. Given the number of people involved in this story he did well. I would listen to another book with this person as a narrator.


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

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    I will be returning this book right after I finish my coffee. Thank goodness Audible has a no questions asked policy and lets you return books you don't really care for.
