What made the experience of listening to The Serpentine Fire the most enjoyable?
I’ve never been a fan of horror novels, although this is somewhat hypocritical when it comes right down to it. I enjoy zombie novels, I like books that deal with survival and aliens. But when it comes to ghosts, the paranormal, that sort of thing I’ve never been a big fan.
So it was with some trepidation that I picked up and listened to Robert Walker’s Serptine Fire. I’m a fan of Robert’s mystery novels and I AM a fan of Science fiction. I found the premise behind his book intriguing and I’m always willing to give a book a try.
In fact over the many decades that I have been reading, there have been less than ten novels that I simply could not finish, so I knew that would not be the case with this book.
I started listening to it and after about two hours I nearly stopped and went to listen to something else. It is not that the book was not well written or interesting, quite the opposite. The whole spontaneous human combustion thing creeped me out that bad.
What did you like best about this story?
The history was well written, the characters were captivating and the story itself was chilling to behold.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
When I was but a young lad in my first decade of life, I remember seeing a documentary on spontaneous human combustion. To this day I remember how it sent a thrill of terror through my body and that I had trouble sleeping for several days after viewing this documentary. Fear of fire is something that I have always had and always will have.
Robert’s novel re-awoke that short period of night-terrors for me and this is the reason that I nearly put the audio book aside so that I could listen to something else.

I really tried to listen to this book, as I enjoyed Walker's novel Dead On. I guess there is an audience for Serpetine Fire's gruesomeness-> but it is not me.
