Publisher's Summary

They have the beginnings of a perfect family. A husband, a wife, a baby on the way. But something will stop them from being happy as they move into their new house: the power of the undead that roam the halls of their home. The demons that have come to claim them. The darkness that seeks to destroy them.

Paranormal Snoozer

What disappointed you about The Haunted?

An overwrought detailing of supposedly paranormal events by a frustrated English major. Every detail examined from five different angles, the listener is forced into the characters’ minds and tortured with drawn-out ponderings of what could POSSIBLY be happening…?! Need to be titillated with soft core soap opera-style sex…? Seems all these two have on their minds when they aren’t droning on about imaginings of possible explanations (times three or four) for these drawn-out, boring events. Don’t waste your time or money here – get something like “Paranormal Intruder” instead…

Has The Haunted turned you off from other books in this genre?

Just made me much more aware of following reviews...

How could the performance have been better?

Performance was adequate. Material was awful, so she had little to do to make it interesting.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None of which I can really think...

Any additional comments?

Torturous writing made these minimal events drag on for what seemed like hours. If I want drawn-out childish details of sex and "true love," I'll read some old Dean Koontz.

Real fail here.

What disappointed you about The Haunted?

It is cliche, predictable, and lacks any sort of substance or plot. Basically a string of paranormal experiences with the woman screaming over and over and over. You keep hoping to hear some backstory or character development but it just never happens. How on earth was this a "NYT best seller"? This author took a boring title, threw together a male and female for the ol' "young couple in a new house", and just picked scary situations from different movies for them to be in. OMG thank goodness for the audible no questions asked return policy.

What was most disappointing about Michaelbrent Collings’s story?

The paranormal situations in some cases were actually interesting! Why on earth didn't he develop the characters or storyline? Could have been a great haunted house story despite the cliches.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

It didn't sound like the narrator could have been in any way one of the characters from the book. It sounded like grandma reading you a bedtime story.

Any additional comments?
