Summary

Another terrifying, classic horror novel from best-selling author John Saul. An insidious madman haunts the peaceful town of Borrego, New Mexico. His goal is singular, as is the focus of his hate and rage. The teenagers of the town seem to have gone too far, and now he will strike back - while they sleep and even during their waking hours - and silence them forever.

Slow Start but Enjoyable Read.

After a slow start where I almost gave up listening, the novel took off. I realise the first few chapters are laying the foundation or backdrop to the actual story but it's not till Judith returns to her home town that the story really takes off.

So if you the reader can bear with the writer, while he lays the where, why, how, what and whom, then you will enjoy this story.

This is Why

I read this book a couple of times while I was collecting every book I could find by John Saul. Every book at the time I read them was considered my favorite until I decided they all were! Having said that I can honestly say although I still feel the same about them, the experience of actually listening to this book brought on a whole new level of bringing the story to life! I can't express how much more I actually heard making the book itself so much more intense! All in all amazing!

Need new narrator

Story was intriging but I just can't get past this narrators voice. At first I though it was a computer reading it. I even tried slowing the voice down and speeding it up. Please redo with a new narrator! I will finish this book the good old-fashioned way. Sorry John

Ms Dawe may need some speech classes

...At least as of this recording. She speaks very much like a 5 year old stating something very matter-of-factly. The pauses between sentences were too long, making the story hard to follow.

Great story though. Love Mr Saul.

Not a typical John Saul ending

This is the first John Saul book I've listened to that didn't leave anything evil still lurking. For the most part, the other books work well with his typical type of ending. I am glad he went a different route with this book and ended it the way he did.

Book was good, Narration sucked!

Any additional comments?

I am a truck driver and listen to a LOT of audio books. I listened to this one all the way through because I have been a fan of John Saul since I was a teenager, though Dean Koontz is my favorite author, John Saul is tied for a very close second. The first book I ever read by him was Blind Fury (unfortunately not unabridged on Audible, hint hint).

This book was good, IF you can ignore the narrator!! Which I usually can.
I managed to get through the book, and John Saul did not disappoint, but the reader, ugh.

If you like John Saul and can ignore how it sounds and concentrate strictly on the story then it is worth the credit, but if you can not divorce the two, then you would be better off getting the paper version of this book.
