Description

Audie Award Finalist, Original Work, 2016

Based on the best-selling, award-winning graphic novel series Locke & Key - written by acclaimed suspense novelist Joe Hill (NOS4A2, Horns) and illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez - this multicast, fully dramatized audio production brings the images and words to life.

A brutal and tragic event drives the Locke family from their home in California to the relative safety of their ancestral estate in Lovecraft, Massachusetts, an old house with powerful keys and fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them. As siblings Tyler, Kinsey, and Bode Locke discover the secrets of the old house, they also find that it's home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all....

Featuring performances by Haley Joel Osment (Entourage, The Sixth Sense), Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), Kate Mulgrew (Orange Is the New Black, Star Trek: Voyager), Joe Hill, Gabriel Rodriguez, and Stephen King (The Stand, 11-22-63), as well as a cast of more than 50 voice actors, this audio production preserves the heart-stopping impact of the graphic novel's astounding artwork through the use of richly imagined sound design and a powerful original score.

*Locke & Key contains explicit language and adult situations.

Commentaires

"The concepts in this production, based on a graphic novel, are perfectly executed by a full cast.... Kate Mulgrew leads the way with her perfect portrayal of an ancient grandmother with an evil streak." (AudioFile)

Very intriguing

Not sure what all the bad reviews are about... I guess you really need that twisted mindset of years of Stephen King to understand Joe Hill. I will say it does require a lot of focus and imagination to keep up with the different references, times, and situations. I though the story was very fun and the way audible performed this was fantastic...it really put me in a theater watching a movie...

Folks, this is an audio play.

Dismiss all the negative reviews from people complaining they couldn't follow the narration. Why? Because it's not narrated. This is an audio play, much like what people used to listen to on the radio a hundred years ago or so. Yes, there are many different voice actors, and yes you do have to pay attention to follow the plot. But it's worth it. I enjoyed the hell out of this and want to find more audiobooks in this vein. It's one thing for a narrator to describe a scream, it's quite another to hear the actual terror and pain.

I read through the graphic novel along with audible book which just magnified everything. It's a really great story and very suspenseful! Do not pass this up!

Something got me...

Something about this story grabbed me. It was hokey, but just the right kind of hokey. Lovecraft fans delight.

Foreshadowing Under Locke and Key

This is my first fictional audiobook. The story was an enjoyable kind of easy to follow given all that was going on. Whereas the answers behind essential questions unfolded quite neatly, I found my ears invested in the motivations behind the actions that drove this story onward. The youthful innocence was palatable even when that is something I am usually not a fan of. The music helped play up the suspense in a fashion that was not too jarring from the proceeding events. The voice actors helped lots in making the characters come into their own individuality. And the sound direction for the action scenes helped play up the dread, joy, or other emotions that were meant to be played. I sought an audiobook out in part to replace the presence of shows by radio, which I caught glimpses of in my youth through media without the saturation or incentives to tune in. Originally, with all that took place in the first book, I later realized that I mistakenly started playing this than the three hour book instead for a part of my road trip. Since then, I decided to see the rest of it through to a satisfying conclusion for me. I would recommend anyone who has patience for a series of plays and an ear for an audience ought to check this out. Supposing that is all I have to say immediately after my first listen, I look forward to other stories to keep me occupied while being my busy self that is at least as entertaining as this.

Poor execution

I hate giving low reviews. I'm thinking the story might be good if done in a normal format where someone reads you the book. This is done as more of a live-play type production. It left me clueless as to who is who, what the heck is going on and what just happened. I got this free, which is about what it's worth in my opinion.

I WANT MY MONEY BACK!

This book was just a comic book that drags on and on and on. It is very difficult to follow because of all the different readers, some of which put me to sleep as soon as they started reading.

Die Sprossen der englischen Hörspiel-Szene

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Als eines der wenigen englischen Hörspiele wurde Locke & Key von Fred Greenhalg (Radio Drama Revival, The Cleansed), produziert. Dieser ist ein Vertreter der Hörspiel-Produzenten die am liebsten "Vorort" aufnehmen, bei der die Sprecher also nicht steril in einem kleinen Kämmerchen und Isoliert ihre Sätze einsprechen - denn hier werden die Aufnahmen an einem dem Schauplatz-ähnlichem Ort aufgenommen, genauso wie die Bewegungen, Handlungen und Interaktionen der Charaktere. Dies spiegelt sich wunderbar in den Stimmen der Sprecher wieder. Das Hörspiel gewinnt durch diese Technik eine sehr erfrischende Dynamik und wirkt um einiges realer als die meisten deutschen Produktionen, welche überwiegend in Studios produziert werden.
Auch die Story ist ungemein fesselnd. Locke and Key basiert auf dem original script von Joe Hill, welches bislang nur als Graphic Novel umgesetzt wurde. Die Story ist sehr gut ausgeklügelt und komplex, alle wie nebensächliche erwähnten Details finden am Ende noch den Weg zu ihrer Bedeutsamkeit. Die Charaktere sind komplex und divers.
Bei einigen der Sprecher sind die Stimmen leider etwas zu nah beieinander, aber die meisten kann man sehr gut auseinander halten.
Alles in allem eine sehr solide Hörspielproduktion, und wer gerne englische Hörbücher und deutsche Hörspiele hört wird an diesem Hörspiel seine rege freude haben :)

Story OK, but bad production quality

Especially in action sequences you just have no clue what happens, because of bad audio design. There are too few audio clues that make sense. Many characters just sound alike.
