Description

Twenty years ago, the mysterious death of his aunt left Aaron Holbrook orphaned and alone. He abandoned his rural Arkansas hometown vowing never to return, until his seven-year-old son died in an accident, plunging Aaron into a nightmare of addiction and grief. Desperate to reclaim a piece of himself, he returns to the hills of his childhood, to Holbrook House, where he hopes to find peace among the memories of his youth. But solace doesn't come easy. Someone - or something - has other plans.

Like Aaron, Holbrook House is but a shell of what it once was, a target for vandals and ghost hunters who have nicknamed it "the devil's den." Aaron doesn't believe in the paranormal - at least, not until a strange boy begins following him wherever he goes. Plagued by violent dreams and disturbing visions, Aaron begins to wonder if he's losing his mind. But a festering darkness lurks at the heart of Holbrook House…a darkness that grins from within the shadows, delighting in Aaron's sorrow, biding its time.

Super creepy

This book is extremely dark and disturbing but the characters are so likeable it's tough to put down. The narration was awesome. Emotions really came through.

I liked this book alot!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The story was scary, just the right amount! I like the narrator, I'd recommend this book to someone who likes supernatural books! I was never bored or too scared...just the right amount!

What about Peter Berkrot’s performance did you like?

I think he was emotional when needed, he did other "voices" well...he was pleasant to listen to.

Terrible Narration

Would you try another book from Ania Ahlborn and/or Peter Berkrot?

I will absolutely try another book by Ahlborn, but I will avoid this narrator at all costs.

How could the performance have been better?

I couldn't even listen to it--I read most of this book on my Kindle. The narrator felt the need to make every single sentence sound scary--save it for the scenes that actually require it! Terrible.

Left a lot to be desired.

Would you try another book from Ania Ahlborn and/or Peter Berkrot?

Perhaps. This book wasn't bad by any means and would be willing to try another from the author (Ania). The narration wasn't bad, but it seemed forced - to be more creepy. He was also very breathy and once I picked up on his heavy intakes of breath, I couldn't un-hear it.

What was most disappointing about Ania Ahlborn’s story?

The fact that I was left questioning so much of what was going on with the story. I felt like no questions were answered. I assume this was to add a scare factor to the book, but it ended up just making it shallow and unbelievable. It lost all horror value because there was no real reason given to why what was going on was happening.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I didn't like how breathy and forced the narrator was. He sounded like a movie voice over for a trailer and it was hard to listen to.

I liked the emphasis and pace that was read, I could easily understand what he was saying.

What character would you cut from The Bird Eater?

Hazel. She was very pointless and right when you think she might actually have something to offer to the story, she gets pointlessly cut from the story.

Any additional comments?

The book wasn't bad, I am not upset I listened to it. It just made me wish there was more explanation, such as, why did the child eat birds? Why was he in this home? What caused this family curse? Instead it was all just empty and then ongoing. It felt unfinished and not well thought out. Laving out those details made it much less frightening and more frustrating.

Slow and goes no where

I like other books by this author but this book just went nowhere for me. The story behind the boy is poorly fleshed out and the whole lost love angle seemed juvenile and just weird. The ending was very predictable but the idea story as a whole was an interesting concept it just wasn't executed well. The narrator is very good though.

Nicely creepy

Quite predictable, but well-written. Very creepy, not enough to keep one up at night. Didn't care for the narrator, who had a tendency to end a lot of sentences with a distracting gaspy breath.

WAS THE NARRATOR ON A BREATHING MACHINE!!!!

Every other sentence the narrator took a large breath. Hey Pete, why didm' t you add some open mouthed chewing to the loud breathing, that would have been the cherry on my ear sunday!

Stopped listening...

Don't rely on the Amazon reviews unless you're a fan of drivel. Listened to about 6 hours and just couldn't go on. Silly, poorly written story and horrible narration. I'll be returning this one...

gets better

would have been a 2* read for me, but the last 20% were quite good so I gave 3*. unfortunately, it's really slow paced in the beginning and there's a lot happening, which doesn't add to the story.
Really liked the ending, though.
