Publisher's Summary

It's a chair that has been passed down from generation to generation. But ten-year-old Joey refuses to go near it - even though it seems terribly important to Joey's father and uncle. Because the chair is part of a family tradition. A tradition in which Joey must take his place-no matter how terrifying...

A good story, terrible narration.

Any additional comments?

While I enjoyed the story, the quality of narration was awful! The narrator messed us words, repeated himself, hit the microphone and pretty much ruined the book though I think that's more to do with the need for an editor because he did do a great job with the voices and bringing the atmosphere to life. I just couldn't get past the many mistakes.

The book itself was good. The idea of the chair and what it made the little boy feel was incredibly creepy. The author has created an intriguing and scary read and I will definitely check out more by him! His descriptive writing and attention to detail was amazing and he drew me in from the start, it's just a pity the quality was so bad.

Born Burning

This was a difficult book to get through.The narration was so so and there was a LOT of repetition of lines.The story of a cursed chair being passed down to the oldest boy in the next generation was a good one.The characters and the chair story could have been fleshed out more.This audiobook was provided to me at no cost for a fair and honest review
