Publisher's Summary

From the minds of multi-million selling suspense authors Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker comes House, an epic supernatural thriller that gives a new meaning to the phrase "haunted house". In rural Alabama, two couples find themselves in a fight for survival. Running from a maniac bent on killing them, they flee deep into the woods. They seek refuge in an old house that's been vacated for years, or so they think. They soon discover that others are dwelling in the lower level of the house, and they don't take kindly to visitors. With danger present in the house, they try to leave, but the house won't let them. Worse, they soon realize the killer has purposely lured them to this house. As they huddle around an old fireplace, a tin can falls through the chimney. Scrawled on its side is a message from the killer: He claims to have killed God and now demands more dead bodies. The characters come to realize that the house, while real, mirrors their own heart and soul, and unless each can defeat the evil within, the evil in the house will surely claim them. House is a modern tale that will have readers searching their own spiritual pulse long after they reach the last page.

Very confusing

I have met Frank Peretti and he is a wonderful man and an awesome author. I love all of his books...except this one. It is confusing and I got lost fairly quickly. Nothing personal Frank, but I didn't care for YOUR narration of the book...the voice of the female voice was irritating and sounded like "a man trying to talk like a woman" which is not believable. A good person to use for multiple voices would be Jack Sondricker who reads the Left Behind Series.
It probably didn't help that this was an abridged version. MAYBE I'll try the unabridged version at a later time. I think I'll "read" the next book before I "listen" to it. I hope the next plot will be better than this one. Sorry!!

Good Story, ANNOYING VOICES!!!

I love Ted Dekker books, and I was hoping I would love this one too. But unfortunately, that wasn't the case with this book. The biggest issue was the voice narration! Especially for the women in the story! It got so bad at times that I would have to stop listening to it because I would get a headache! I like Rob Lamont's voice. I think this book needs to be redone with him as the narrator reading the unabridged version. Sorry Frank, but have you even listened to what your voices are like for this book?

Another thing that was bothersome was that the story could get kinda/really confusing at times...and it doesn't help when the voices are annoying! Sometimes I would have to rewind parts of the story just to try to figure out what was going on!

I think this story would be great if it was unabridged and narrated with great voices.
