Wow AWESOME. Scary Suspensful & just plain fun

I did not see this one coming! I love horror books and this one was a pleasant surprise. The characters are believable, have allot of depth, tied together beautifully and you catch yourself rooting for the underdog! The story revolves around a boy & his family whose mother was murdered while clearing brush on their house site. "Kip" saw the whole thing but is in therapy for repressed memories. It is five years later & his bully big brother Marty picks on him relentlessly and his attorney father never seems to have as much time for him as he wants despite being a great dad. They live on old native american land and the local kids, including Marty & his buddy Al go to the old "indian caves" to "party". People start to disappear & the kids believe it is the spooky old drunken indian who is the killer. There are dark demonic "little brothers" aka demons afoot. Kip & the old indian are the towns only hope.

The story moves along at a great pace. Just enough horror, suspense and good story telling to keep you riveted. The author does seem to be a little obsessed with people hocking up gross mucous..........seriously it's pretty gross..............but other than that I have absolutely NO complaints. There are even short stories at the end that go along with the book and further show the Untcigahunk for the vicious scary little demons that they are. Great narrator as well. I wish there were more stories available from this author!!

GET IT you won't be disappointed.

Interesting Enough

Would you listen to Untcigahunk again? Why?

If there was nothing else to listen to, I would. It was a good story the first time around, but not good enough for me to listen to again.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Untcigahunk?

When Kip stopped being the victim and stood up to his older brother. I mean really!


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Don't turn off the Lights!!!


Any additional comments?

Very interesting idea for this book. There were parts where I reallly just wanted to slap the main character silly and tell him to get over himself, but overall a good listen.
