Well this was a seriously pleasant change of pace from my normal horror listens! I could tell that 'Audrey Rose' was written in the past based on some of advancements in society, not based on how relevant it is to today. I think this story very much holds it's own in 2017.
It starts out as a good old fashioned stalker story but quickly turns into a merry-go-round of what's possible in the human mind. A large portion of this book takes place in a court room and asks that the listener, along with the jury, ponder the feasibility of reincarnation. While the trial takes place, there is no shortage of spooky/paranormal happenings for the reader. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys horror/thriller/paranormal genre content and who also enjoys a good classic!

I didn't know much about the book before I started listening to it. I wasn't aware of when it was written either. I don't see that this book being older than me has any impact on the story as it held up just fine for me. I wouldn't call this horror by today's standards but it has the classic feel of a horror. As a father of a girl I can say this story is horrifying but in a mystical way so that it didn't seem realistic enough to actually scare me. Ivy's father's behavior as the story progressed maddened me enough that I was actually angry more than anything else.
The story itself to me seemed to be two parts. The first part was the background and buildup and then the second was the courtroom proceedings and resolution. I'm not a fan of courtroom drama and wasn't happy with the ending so that is why I gave the story 3 stars. I don't mean to say the story wasn't good. It was unique and neat; but, not really my style of horror.
Matt did a good job narrating. For some reason the sound of Matt saying "hot, hot, hot" has suck with me.

This is the book the film Audrey Rose was based on. It is a good horror type story but I do think that the parts depicting the court scenes are just a bit too long and start to get boring, same with the dairy made by the father of Audrey Rose as he travels to India to learn more of reincarnation. A sad ending but a good listen all the same.
