A great horror book!
Step aside boogyman.
I liked that there was always something new to figure out. There are a couple of things that you will be able to find out on your own, but most of the time you will be asking questions.
I have not listened to Jake Urry's other performances yet, but I have a few in my library that I can't wait to get to. He did an amazing job though, he has the perfect voice for the horror genre.
The most extreme reacting I had to this book was a feeling of tension throughout most of the book. There were parts I was actually gritting my teeth because the tension was so high.
This has been one of my favorite books from the horror genre and I would recommend it to any horror fan that doesn't like things too gruesome in a horror story.
