Publisher's Summary

Your fear is their entertainment... Andrew's life is one of bored contentedness: a teenage daughter, a faithful wife, and a middle-class job. He even has a Mercedes. His life is without drama, and the comfort of middle-age is setting in. That all changes when he refuses to buy a pack of cigarettes for the local gang of youths. Led by the emotionally unstable, and sadistic, Frankie, the gang target Andrew and his family in an escalating campaign of terror and violence that threatens their very lives. It isn't long before Andrew starts to wish that he'd just brought those damn cigarettes.

Pay 1/2 price b/c the book is only 50% good!

The first half of ASBO was quite good. However, after the "main event," it's all quickly downhill on ice right into a huge pine tree. Do not recommend.

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

A very good book. Even more terrifying, because I can see this one actually happening.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Andrew, I feel horrible for him.. his whole life goes to hell in a matter of hours and just gets worse as time goes on,

Which character – as performed by Nigel Patterson – was your favorite?

Frankie. A true psychopath. Nigel Patterson did great with all the voices though. He has a very pleasant voice, a pleasure to listen to.
