Deep and Horrifying
I enjoyed the narration and thought the performance was well done. Engrossing story.
I've read Collings' "Darkbound" and first three installments of "The Colony" series. While there was still a speculative element in "The Loon," the horror in this particular story was more real-world than fantastic. I'm not sure I've read/listened to anything else quite like this before.
The Monster passages had cool effects and were my favorite to listen to. Paul, Rachel, and Becky were the characters whose points of view I craved most to return to. Steiger was also extremely creepy and well done. There were a variety of accents that came through in various minor characters that I thought were well done. Narrator did a good job making the unlikable characters unlikable, and the likable characters sympathetic with tone of voice, accents, and other effects.
I found this book very intense and enjoyed it much better when I digested it in small doses, listening a few hours at a time. Yet, it was extremely engrossing.
