Spanning over 100 years of mid-Michigan history, The Eaton tells the story of Sam Spicer, a young entrepreneur who purchases the dilapidated Michigan Central Railroad Depot in Eaton Rapids with the dream of opening a hot new martini bar. But when he and his friends discover an abandoned underground hotel directly beneath the property, they must discover what happened to the original guests—before their own time runs out.
The Eaton is the debut novel of John K. Addis, and combines a flashback-based narrative structure with the gruesome style of '80s horror classics, creating a unique new voice critics are calling "fresh, original, and truly terrifying."

Fans of 80's monsters flicks rejoices!
It's 80's vibe with a modern touch on the writing,mostly very interesting characters that stands out for one another.
Really did like when we are switching between the past guest of the hotel and the present guest, the cliffhangers the author leaves us on between chapters is really something.
I won't spoil anything for you but when it is revealed that one of the characters among the group is not what he/she pretended to be and the paranoia that follows most characters for the rest of the novel, was really great, reminded me a bit of John Carpenter's The Thing.
Yes most definitely.
The performance by Jeff Hays is alone I think worth the listening he portrays so many characters and never will you confuse one for another especially the woman's for I thought for a moment that there was more than one narrator.

A really great yet haunting story.
