Publisher's Summary

Cousins Billy and Roy were just two mischievous boys - probably meaner than most - but still just bored, country kids looking for some adventure and excitement. During the nights they spent with their grandmother, their favorite pastime was spying on the tenants of their grandmother's rental houses. Over the years, the two had spied on all of their grandmother's renters at one time or another, but the one who provided the most fun and excitement was a desperate woman named Annie Atkinson.

Interesting with no big surprises or twists

I thought this was an interesting story, with some tension as the boys engaged in their Peeping Tom antics. Once those tense moments passed, the story wound down in a logical way. In my purely subjective opinion, it seemed like I was overhearing someone tell a mildly scandalous bit of local gossip. Interesting enough for me to hang around nearby in the shadows and listen to the full story, but then continue on my way once the tale ended.

The narrator was a good fit for this style of story - I enjoyed her voice and would certainly not hesitate to listen to her again.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A fun, somewhat creepy, quick listen...

Annie, by John Issac Jones is a short story that revolves around Billy and Roy, two mischievous cousins that lived in the South back in the '50s. There wasn't much to do, so they often spied on the renters of their grandma's rental properties. Annie was their favorite tenant to spy on. You see Annie lives alone, but she's married. When you listen to what transpires, well, lets just say that the boys will never forget Annie. I don't want to say anything else because I don't want to spoil the story, but I did enjoy it. Mr. Jones always has unique twists in his writings and Annie is no exception.

I enjoyed Susan Marlowe's narration. She narrated the story with a hint of a deep southern accent that I thought fit the tale perfectly, though I know from listening to other performances by her, this wasn't her usual accent. She was easy to understand and I would (and have) definitely listen to other stories narrated by her in the future. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for an honest review.
