Description

Set in the same dark world as his beloved novel The Last Child, John Hart delivers a stunning vision of a secret world - rarely seen - in this unforgettable audiobook.  

It's been 10 years since the events that changed Johnny Merrimon's life and rocked his hometown to the core. Since then, Johnny has fought to maintain his privacy, but books have been written of his exploits; he has fans, groupies. Living alone in the wilderness beyond town, Johnny's only connection to normal life is his old friend, Jack. They're not boys anymore, but the bonds remain. What they shared. What they lost. 

But Jack sees danger in the wild places Johnny calls home; he senses darkness and hunger, an intractable intent. Johnny will discuss none of it, but there are the things he knows, the things he can do. A lesser friend might accept such abilities as a gift, but Jack has felt what moves in the swamp: the cold of it, the unspeakable fear. 

Building on the world first glimpsed in The Last Child, The Hush is more than an exploration of friendship, persistence, and forgotten power. It takes the listener to unexpected places and reminds us all why John Hart, after five consecutive New York Times best sellers, still warrants acclaim.

Critiques

"The story is greatly enhanced by narrator Jeremy Bobb. No character is too small for Bobb's vocal attention.... A great example of a riveting story enhanced by a creative, consistent narration." (AudioFile Magazine)

Hmm...Good and Bad

I enjoyed many parts of this book but then it spiraled from mystery into very much a fantasy. The Last Child was much better and skimmed the lines of fantasy just enough...This relied on fantasy for much of the plot. If it had been introduced into the story with restraint this would have been a much better book...Towards the end it got ridiculous and then I just couldn't wait for the ending. I do like the two main characters its a shame that this story went off the rails. The narrator was good.

WOW!! Let's discuss thin novel!

First to Audible: Law partner Lesley seduces new associate Jack and based on little else you assign The Hush the genre Legal Thriller? The correct genre is Fantasy: Paranormal and Mystical.

Next: This is the first novel by John Hart I have been able to complete, but only because I considered it a personal challenge.

Finally: The Hush is by far the worst novel I have ever completed.

Best book yet!

I did not think John Hart could top his prior works but he has done it. This story never stops and is rich with character and plot surprises. Absolutely loved it! Waiting patiently for the next book by Mr Hart.....

Not my cup of tea!

I’ve enjoyed John Hart’s books before this, including The Last Child. This is probably as well written, but it definitely is not my cup of tea!!! I forced myself to finish it. I wish the synopsis had included not only the beginning and the end but at least a hint of all the story in between; I doubt I would have listened to it.

Mesmerizing

A must read - enthralling - balanced- poignant and beautiful - without a doubt one if the finest stories ever told.

What happened?

This continuation of the wonderful The Last Child really was a shock to this reader. It’s as though John Hart received an advance and sat down and wrote this in a couple hours. I was very disappointed.

Profound. Captivating. Magical.

Not surprisingly, John Hart has created another masterful story that grabs you like no other. This story went right to my marrow and made me think in a more profound way about the power of ancestors and family...and something else. You can decide that "something else", but I'm willing to bet you'll be moved and uplifted by the possibility of...well, you'll see. Jeremy Bobb is a perfect narrator. What a story! And, as expected, magnificently written.

Mystisch und viel Zauberei

"The Hush" ist ein wunderbares Buch. Wunderbar zum einen bezüglich des Schreibstils und zum anderen bezüglich des Inhalts der Erzählung.
Johnny lebt auf einem 6000 Acker großem Stück Land, das zu Zeiten seines Urgroßvaters von ehemaligen Sklaven bewohnt wurde. Sein Urgroßvater, auch ein John, ließ die Sklaven frei, weil er einen Packt mit einer damals als Hexe geltenden Sklavin einging. Heute ist das Land verwunschen, es geschehen unheimliche Dinge und es herrscht die Dunkelheit. Familien, die darauf wohnen, leiden unter unendlichem Hunger. Das mit Moor durchzogene Land gehört Jonny. Es gibt jedoch eine junge Frau, die ebenfalls Anspruch darauf erhebt.
Ganz langsam entwickelt John Hart die Geschichte dieses Flecken Erde und damit die Geschichte von Jonny's Familie und die der Sklaven, denen das Land kurzzeitig gehörte.
Mir war es jedoch nicht möglich, dieses Buch langsam zu lesen und zu hören. Die Story ist so fesselnd, der Stil ist so brilliant und das Stück amerikanische Geschichte der Südstaaten ist so packend, dass das Hören zu einer Sucht wird. Es ist das erste Buch von John Hart, das mit soviel Mystik aufwartet. Anfangs wollte ich nicht glauben, dass es tatsächlich mystisch wird. Aber und ob!
Die Stimme von Jeremy Bobb empfinde ich als sehr angenehm. sie passt genau zu der Geschichte und man merkt, er steht hinter dem Buch.
Diesen ganzen Text hätte ich auch viel kürzer formulieren können: Ich habe einen neuen Lieblingsschriftsteller!
