Publisher's Summary

Beware the spirits of Lake Manuxet.
Don't look out towards Knob Island at night. That was the warning Douglas' grandfather gave him as a boy. Now returning to the shores of Lake Manuxet as a grown man, with his twin sister and their ailing grandmother in tow for a final, nostalgic visit, Douglas begins to experience frightful things in his cherished childhood vacation spot.
Just what is it that claws its way out of the lake each night, only to approach their cabin? What mysteries does the remote lake hold? Are the horrors Douglas experiences genuine, or is he simply inheriting the madness that seems to run in his family? What is the true nature of the cryptic warning his grandfather gave him so many years ago about the small island at the center of Lake Manuxet?
What begins as a sentimental pilgrimage to a once-enjoyable vacation spot rapidly deteriorates into a fight for survival and sanity.
The Lonesome Dead is a standalone novel of supernatural suspense and terror by Ambrose Ibsen.

A very creepy listen!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, the author does a very good job at keeping the atmosphere creepy. He also writes in such a way as to always keep you on your toes and asking "why?".

What other book might you compare The Lonesome Dead to and why?

Probably books like The Moving In series and The Slaughter series because of an entity that has issues with a past life.

What about Gary Tiedemann’s performance did you like?

I liked that he always made you know how the character was feeling. His voice just reflected the mood and tenseness that was needed for a book such as this.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No extreme reactions, mainly just curiosity at why such an entity would be terrorizing otherwise innocent people.

Family secrets exposed

Any additional comments?

Quick, creative, eerie, suspenseful and entertaining story.

Obviously something odd is going on, the story keeps you guessing almost up to the very end. Not being able to figure out what exactly is going on keeps you glued to the story.

What secrets does your family hide?
What was suppose to be one memorable final family trip turns out to be just that, but not for the reasons that were intended. Finding out there are dark secrets in your family's past that are related to you can change your whole world.

Gary Tiedmann did a great job with the narration. Great voice. Clearly spoken. Smooth even pace. Really good character voices. His was able to convey the emotions each character was feeling. His narration added to the enjoyment of the story.
