Summary

It starts with an odd hum that brings headaches and nosebleeds to the inhabitants of a remote, sleepy country town. Then a sinkhole begins to form...and out from that hole comes the townspeople's worst nightmares. 

Facing their fears and the growing madness, a group of survivors descend into the collapsed area in an attempt to save what is left of their town. Sacrifices will be required, but will they be enough? 

The hole is growing...spreading...and the horror within it is growing stronger....

Fred is Dead

I have to admit I totally enjoyed this book and make me think of all of the sink holes that have been occurring but this book takes it to another level of fear. The main characters are Sheriff Bill Wozniak, Janet Dickson (town doctor), Charlie Watson (town drunk and one of my favorites), Fred Grant and Ellen Simmons (a complainer). Just prior to the holes open up every one hears a hum, has nosebleeds, headaches then see different apparitions. Recommend if you enjoy old time horror with good narration.

Hilarious characters!

Hilarious down home characters in a bad and horrifying situation. The horror aspect of the book was decent and reminded me of a John Saul type of story. BUT, the characters were absolutely great! The constant yet appropriate use of double negatives, good ole southern idioms, neighborly sarcasm, and of course a shot or two of whiskey made this story enjoyable. The narrator did a great job with the voices and a constant laugh out loud moment is when one of the characters, who is terrified of bears, pronounces the word bars. Loved it. Had to get another of Meikle's stories that's narrated by one of my other favorite narrators. I'm sure Meikle's other books mix horror with a tad bit of genuine comedy.

Intriguing!

A strange hum and earth shakes cause weird holes to appear all over town. But that's not the only strange thing to happen, most of the town folks end up with a headache and nosebleed when the hum starts. People are rightly freaking out and a group of survivours set out to leave the town, but when they reach the outskirts they are blocked by a road block manned by army personnel. They are told to return to the town or face being shot. They will have to either figure a way out or find the cause of the noise and sink holes.

This was a quick and easy read. The plot had a steady pace and kept me intrigued till the end. The setting was great as well. You can't go wrong in a small isolated town and it was well developed. I thoroughly enjoyed the uniqueness of this little horror story and am so glad I gave it a go. There are a lot of typical small town characters too but the author writes them so well that you can't help but root for them. Even Ellen!

In all, this was a tense and nerve wracking read and I look forward to checking out more from this author. The sink holes, the mysterious beings and the "Fred is Dead" all made this a chilling, and in a way, fun read!!!

David A. Wood read this well and was able to capture the tense atmosphere. He also had plenty of tones and voices for the different characters and gave a great performance.

Scary and Hilarious

I can't even say how much I enjoyed this book. When I finished this story I actually grieved for the characters because I knew how much I'd miss them, I almost just started it over again! Meikle creates a world so complete with characters so fully fleshed out that I felt like I personally knew them. I fell in love with many of them and I'm hoping beyond hope that there is a sequel to 'The Hole.'

This story begins real-world-scary in that towns folk are besieged by giant holes forming in the ground that are swallowing up houses, cars and people at random. Big Man Sherif teams up with the town doctor to try and keep his townspeople safe. Along with a couple drunks and a rude old lady, these characters fight to the ends of the Earth to stay alive. I can't say more for fear of spoilers, but I can say that I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys horror and adventure. David A. Wood gives an absolutely phenomenal performance in this book.

Needs a follow up

Great story well read with the different voices David Wood narrated beautiful.
I’m hoping for a second book on this as I feel like it was left open for a second book. I was sorry the two main characters died in the end but there are 4 left and the military doing their thing. Needs some angels to come aboard and get rid of the devil pods if that is really what they are.

Pretty Good Story

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review.

This is the first story I have heard/read from William Meikle, and I enjoyed it. The story is good, though I didn’t love the characters. They are crafted well, they just didn’t resonate with me.
The story has something of a “Tremors” vibe, with there being a subterranean mystery. The main characters too remind me of the leads in that movie, as does the setting. There are some other similarities, though for the conflict Meikle turns to the occult rather than graboids.
David A. Wood does a good job of narrating. The character voices are distinct enough and his diction is crisp.
