Publisher's Summary

In a small Arizona town, a man counts his blessings: a loving wife, two teenage daughters, and a job that allows him to work at home. Then "The Store" announces plans to open a local outlet, which will surely finish off the small downtown shops. His concerns grow when "The Store's" builders ignore all the town's zoning laws during its construction. Then dead animals are found on "The Store's" grounds. Inside, customers are hounded by obnoxious sales people, and strange products appear on the shelves. Before long the town's remaining small shop owners disappear, and "The Store" spreads its influence to the city council and the police force, taking over the town! It's up to one man to confront "The Store's" mysterious owner and to save his community, his family, and his life!

What book did you people read!?

....because it couldn't have been the same one I did. I thought I did a really good job going through the reviews for this book. "Creepy" Yes please! "Different " perfect! "Intriguing " sounds good!
The only one of those words that is true is creepy but folks, this is the wrong kind of creepy! How is it that only ONE person took issue with the dad having sex with his daughter? It didn't further the story, change the direction of the story, have anything whatsoever to add to the story.... and the fact that we were beat over the head with the phrase, "best sex of my life " STILL makes me sick to my stomach. I quite listening right then. The person reading this book was horrible and it was by sheer will that I made it as far as I did. I kept thinking ok, only 4,3,... hours to go, you can make it. But at the 2 hour remaining mark, we get incest as a reward for trying. This book is awful.

Wow! Intense and surprisingly different...

Where does The Store rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's definitely in my top 10 books... This book is really interesting. It's part thriller, part mystery, and part paranormal. Half way through, I started thinking of the store as the typical evil corporation... but it's more than that.

What did you like best about this story?

Well, it kept me guessing the entire time. I was not sure what was going to happen. Yes, some parts were definitely predictable, but other parts... well I just didn't see it coming. I'm not one of those people that listen to a story and try to guess what will happen next, I just go with the flow and for the most part, it works for me.

What about David Stifel’s performance did you like?

He was awesome. The sign of a good performance is that you totally get lost in the story and you don't have to figure out the characters or who is talking. That is what happened for me, I just got lost in the story.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, it really had me hooked after the first 10-15 mins. I listened to it over the course of 2.5 days, and it was really a good listen. Yes, there were some slow parts, but overall it was a great listen.

Any additional comments?

This is a very adult book with adult situations. I was actually a bit embarrassed in parts of it. This book is NOT a book for kids, period.
