Publisher's Summary

When five college friends cross America in a minivan to find themselves, they chance upon a road that isn’t on any map. They can’t resist exploring it. The van breaks down. They find a town, a massive trailer park steeped in squalor. The town isn’t on any map either. They find people in town. They’ll wish they hadn’t. The only sanctuary is the Big House - a giant mansion at the center of town that appears to be abandoned, only all the lights come on at night. Inside the Big House is the secret of the town. Inside, they’ll finally find themselves. They won’t like what they find.

Your insecurities and Fears revealed

If you could sum up The End of the Road in three words, what would they be?

unnerving, scary, and thought provoking

What other book might you compare The End of the Road to and why?

This book kind of made me think of Texas Chainsaw movies as the people in the trailer park town were these strange messed up rednecks.

What about Christian Rummel’s performance did you like?

He did a very good job with the Story. and I really liked his Southern Cal girl voice

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When they were in the mansion and they saw themselves in distorted mirrors revealing their true fears and selves.

Any additional comments?

I has listened to Craig DiLouie's other book Suffer the Children which was such a good book. It made me want to buy this short story.If you have not listened to Suffer the Children it is a must have. It is narrated by R.C. Bray who is my favorite narrator.

A version of the hills have eyes

This was a truly disturbing tale of lost travelers thinking that they found salvation in a small back woods town. Sure it was short and sounds like little more than a pitch for a B grade slasher movie the likes of The Hills Have Eyes. Nothing wrong with that in my opinion, not all stories can be masterpieces. Masterpiece or not stories like this can reach down in your soul and turn part of it black. A group of friends break down in the middle of a road trip and in the middle of nowhere, only to find a small town. The residents seems a little off their rocker at first, only to discover later that they are much worse that the travelers first thought. This was a pretty straight forward horror story with not twists or turns, yet I found it a very quick escape from reality.
