Summary

A small number of cameras have the ability to capture ghosts on film. This gift comes at a steep price; the ghosts are resentful and hungry, and the cameras offer them a rare chance to reach their favourite prey... humans.

Jenine doesn't know any of this when she finds an abandoned Polaroid camera in a lighthouse. At first she assumes the ghostly shapes in the photos are a glitch or a prank - but then the spirits begin to hunt her down, and she's forced into a deadly race to free herself from the camera's curse.

Great fast paced story

Brilliant story, took a bit to get used to the narrator who was quite monotone. But that's just personal tastes, others may love the narrators voice.

Good story read by a 10 year old

Really enjoyed the story. Thought it was a good concept and at times was downright creepy. However the narrator sounded like a monotone 10 year old. Would have been a lot better if it was someone else that actually gave the characters personalities and had emotion in her voice.

Disappointed

I usually enjoy this author’s books. So I was disappointed by this story. And the performance was abysmal. What a waste of money. Don’t bother

Horrible narrator, did not enjoy story

typically I like short stories and I've enjoyed a couple of Darcy Coats books but this was probably the worst book I've read in years.

Ghost camera ....needed a few more shots of scary

Very disappointed in the book. The story just fell flat for me. I was hoping for a good old fashioned ghost story and this book didn't quite hit the mark . Strange, I know, because there were plenty of ghosts. I simply lost track of the story because it did not hold my interest. Sad for a ghost story. The narrator was not good or exciting at all. Actually quite irritating to me. I've read another book by Darcy Coates and was very happy with the story and the amount of "spookiness" in it. Don't know if I'm willing to waste time or money on another book by the author and certainly not this narrator. This is my humble opinion of the book.

Read by a ten year old? Must be written by one too

If this is a YA book I could not find anything that said that. The plot never develops and the dialogue sounds like what a middle schooler thinks adult women speak like.

If the IS a YA book then I would change my ratings to two stars.

Okay I guess

This story was interesting with some solid ideas but the main character was very passive and the dialogue reads like the author has never had a real conversation with another person and has never had a female friend.
The narrator did her best.

Nice and creepy

Ghost Camera by Darcy Coates is an audible book I borrowed with KU. A gal finds an old Polaroid camera that takes picture with ghosts in them. Each picture gets creepier! Her and her friend try to get answers but when they do the answers its are not what they expected! Creepy!

I love this book.... when I read it.

I love this book, it gives me the creeps every time I read it but.....
The narrator of this book sounds like she is 16, very high pitched voice and completely ruins the theme of a spooky book.
She is probably a great person but this is not the right book for her to read, she should read up beat teen books not a scary book about ghosts.

Ugggh

Narrator was so bad it destroyed what may have been an interesting plot/theme since this is a deviation from the haunted house theme

“Adorkable” Terror

A pair of quirky twenty something girls find a ghost camera and their lives quickly turn terrifying. It’s cute, light hearted at times but also surprisingly scary when it wants to be. Another winner from Darcy Coates, only a little slight compared to her more recent work.
