Publisher's Summary

Horror master Garton delivers his usual ironic and macabre touches as the dead, who are, in fact, pretty ugly, make life a hell for the living. Following a sequence of increasingly dire personal tragedies, culminating in the unexplained death of their four-year-old son, Josh, Jenna and David Kella plan to make a new start of their lives on the old family homestead they've inherited just outside Eureka, Calif., with their surviving son, Miles. What they discover, though, is a nightmare.

I feel bad, but here's the scoop.

What would have made The Loveliest Dead better?

A different narrator.

Would you ever listen to anything by Ray Garton again?

Sure! I'd give him another try. Problem is, I'm not even sure if The Lovliest Dead is a good book or not. I made it through approx. 20 minutes before I had to quit. The narrator was the worst I've ever heard. And check out my history; I'm not new to audiobooks.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brian Eslick?

He seems to be trying out a weird parody of what people think William Shatner sounds like: long pauses in the middle of sentances, odd pronounciations, etc. WS is actually a great narrator, so I say go with the real thing.

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

I have no idea.

Any additional comments?

I'm dissapointed.

Awesome ghost story!!

Loved the story, but not the reader. He was too slow and sounded like he was fumbling with his words. It helped when I sped it up a little. The story was top notch! I love ghost stories and haunted houses. This was one of the best I've heard in a while.
