Publisher's Summary

When 12-year-old Freeman Mills arrives at Wendover, a group home for troubled children, it's a chance for a fresh start. But second chances aren't easy for Freeman, the victim of painful childhood experiments that gave him the ability to read other people's minds.
Little does Freeman know that his transfer was made at the request of Dr. Richard Kracowski, whose research into the brain's electrical properties is revealing new powers of the human mind. Freeman simply wants to survive, take his medicine for manic depression, and deceive his counselors into believing he is happy. But when the other children develop their own clairvoyant abilities, and insane spirits begin haunting the halls of Wendover, he can't safely hide inside his own head anymore.
Because there is no escaping the enemy within....

A chilling read.

Any additional comments?

The summary pretty much says it all so let's get straight to my thoughts.

I liked this well enough to listen to the whole book in the matter of days, which is good for me because it's over 10 hours long!! But one thing I didn't like was the narrator. He was very very dull. I found myself at times with my mind wandering, even though the story itself was intense. Daniel Dorse, while being clear and concise, was dull and boring. He didn't bring any life to the story and it felt like he read the whole book in a high falsetto voice, which was quite annoying. This is a case of reading it instead of listening to it!!

The plot was intriguing. The setting was perfect and the characters were varied and wonderfully written. I think my favourite part was the setting. The home they are in now is filled with the ghosts of people who were patients there years ago. I always find these kind of settings to be the scariest because asylums just scream haunted!!!

All the characters were awesome in their own way. Everyone of them are flawed but you can't help but root for the kids. Each of them has their own story and reason they are there but they don't deserve the likes of Dr. Kracowski nor Mr. Bondurant looking after them. Both are truly evil in their own way!

In all this is a creepy, chilling and intense read. I could totally picture this as a scary movie and one I would think twice about watching, because while I can read about ghosts etc, I am a total wuss when it comes to watching them! It scares me silly!!

Just can't get through it

What would have made The Home better?

A different narrator. There is too many whistles and the voice just grates on me. It's very slow, and dull.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Home?

Scott Nichelson writes an incredible tale

Would you be willing to try another one of Daniel Dorse’s performances?


Any additional comments?

Pass on this or anything else Daniel Dorse reads. It's just not good.
