Publisher's Summary

Evan Tormer is haunted.
His life has been shattered by events beyond his control and regret is his constant companion. His wife is gone, lost to an unbeatable cancer. His son has been mentally and physically handicapped by a tragic accident. He's been fired for using company funds in a failed attempt to save his wife's life.
On a whim, Evan accepts an invitation to housesit on a picturesque island in northern Minnesota. At first it seems like the perfect second chance for he and his son to recover and rebuild their life together. But there is something very, very wrong with the house and all that occupies it.
And worst of all, Evan doesn't know if the house is haunted...
Or if it's all in his mind.

Started Out Promising but Fizzled Out...

The main characters were well rounded and interesting and good suspense in the beginning then it seemed like Hart lost interest in his own book somewhere in the middle... all that character building and suspense goes nowhere then the end is a mess of confusion and ridiculousness. I had to listen to the last couple of hours at least 3 times to "get it" and all I got was a feeling of disappointment and annoyance.

- Carol "I love to read but don't have much time so, listening to books has become a necessary passion. If I can't read, I'll listen and it makes mundane things like driving long distances and cleaning house bearable."

Wonderfully scary, except for the ending.

Would you listen to The Waiting again? Why?


Any additional comments?

I've heard about author Joe Hart before, and am so glad Audible added a couple of his titles. I hope they add more! His writing is superior to other authors in this genre. The ending was disappointing, but nevertheless, I recommend this title to anyone who wants a good scare.
