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!

Wow! Intense and surprisingly different...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Good story, not so good narrator...
