A House By The Sea, by Ambrose Ibsen, Narated by, James Foster.

I thoughlry enjoyed this book. It was well written by Ambrose Ibsen.. It entails the story of a Author, Jack, his wife Darcy, and his two little girls. Jack decided to move out of the fast pase city they lived in and him having a case of writers block bought a large house by the sea with a beautiful view overlooking over the sea on the far Main Cost of New Port Road Island. He and Darcy thought the house, location and scenery was to be a new begining. He just knew this was were he could loose the block and being behind on his deadline was convinced he would have a new book for his editor in no time. Much to his surprise someone or something thought othlerswise. Join Jack and his family on this exciting new move for their new beginning. Not suitable in my opinion for the young. If you love to listen to Chillers late at night, this is for you. James Foster is an excellent Narrator.

Pretty creepy

I like books that are scary enough to make me uncomfortable but that are not gruesome. This book is creepy enough but not gross in any way, sometimes the characters do things and make decisions that seem unadvisable,( like leaving their daughters alone in parts of the house even after they know its haunted)...however the book did not drag out too long, the characters were mostly likable, the narrator was not at all annoying. Overall I would give this 3.5 stars as a good book. If book 2 becomes available on audible I will listen.
