Summary

Paul Tremblay, critically acclaimed author of Disappearance at Devil's Rock and A Head Full of Ghosts, adds an inventive twist to the home invasion horror story in a heart-palpitating novel of psychological suspense. 

Seven-year-old Wen and her parents, Eric and Andrew, are vacationing at a remote cabin on a quiet New Hampshire lake. Their closest neighbours are more than two miles in either direction along a rutted dirt road. 

One afternoon, as Wen catches grasshoppers in the front yard, a stranger unexpectedly appears in the driveway. Thus begins an unbearably tense, gripping tale of paranoia, sacrifice, apocalypse and survival that escalates to a shattering conclusion, one in which the fate of a loving family and quite possibly all of humanity are entwined. 

The Cabin at the End of the World is a masterpiece of terror and suspense from the fantastically fertile imagination of Paul Tremblay.

Narration is just awful

Honestly the worst narrator I’ve experienced with Audible. Perhaps it’s a little unfair as the narration was so awful I couldn’t really give the story a chance.

Dreadful voice.

Could not finish the book and only managed 1 chapter because the narrator's voice was boring and not very clear. I'I'm sure the book is riveting and will have to actually read it instead.

Premise for a good short story...by another author

Intriguing start. Good family, who are home-invaded by a group who could be trying to stop the end of the world, or are just a bunch of zealots. The most excruciating Audible book I have ever listened to. A bare narrative, it had a mass of unnecessary detail and repetitive dialogue, which made it boring. After 30 minutes I fast-forwarded chapters, listened for a minute or so and still kept up with the plot (!) so you might appreciate how padded it is. I'm planning on returning it for a credit.
