This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
This story could have been told in 10 chapters at the most but it dragged on for 30 endless chapters that were boring and entirely too detailed. I had guessed the end by the first few chapters. The narrator was quite good. He sounded like Jude Law but the story just got on my nerves. Ugh. Save your money!

Struggled to finish this book as I kept expecting more to happen or there to be some black magic or mischief involved. The ending felt rushed and not complete with holes in the storyline. I wouldn't recommend.

Wow what a creepy psychological thriller this book is, Not many books get you hooked from the start but this did, I finished this book so quick because I could not stop listening,
This poor couple move in to this apartment starting a new life, but you may think you have the neighbours from hell think again!!
Everything about this story is brilliant and you really warm to the characters I would put this book in my top 10 without a doubt.

What made the experience of listening to The Magpies the most enjoyable?
The story is compelling, it made me want to listen to more and more, twists and turns aplenty. Makes you question how well you know your neighbours?
What did you like best about this story?
How seemingly perfectly stayed and sensible people can be driven to certain actions through junk mail. The writer guides you into the story with expertise
What does Elliot Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
The narration was fine, perfectly listenable although if I had to nit pick I think female narrators voice males better than males voice females, however as the lead is a man it is understandable why this book is read by a man. I think Elliot Hill does however bring to life the character of Jamie well, in respect of his age and lifestyle.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Often sent a shiver down my spine
Any additional comments?

One of the most boring "horror" books I've ever read. 95% descriptions of normal people doing normal things. Sub-plots that whent nowhere, an unlikeable main character all leading to an incredibly wwak climax. The mildy disturbing parts are buried under so much boring exposition you'll want to tear your ears off. I only completed It because I was determined to get my moneys worth. I would not recommend this book as a horror novel to anyone who isn't over 70 or be brought forward in time from the Victorian era.
