Creepy Story

The story is about Alan whose sister disappeared when they were young. Alan has come back to the town where it happened to try to find out what happened to her. A lot of children have disappeared over the years and he wants to know why. What happened to them all?
I liked that it was more spooky than just out and out violent. I like the way the author wrote it with Alan in present day and a journal from 1826. The author did an excellent job with blending the two time periods. The characters were connected through generations so you really get the full impact of how long the horror has gone on. I enjoyed the narrator, Jake Urry. He has a good voice and puts emotions into his reading. At times I forgot it was just one narrator.
If you are reading the book yourself you may find the beginning slow going as the author builds the story. It does quickly pick up though. I think this was better in the audio version. It is more like someone is telling you a story they know. I stayed with it better. If you like spooky, atmospheric stories you may like this one. If you are looking for violent, gory stuff you probably won't.

A great horror book!

If you could sum up Children to the Slaughter in three words, what would they be?

Step aside boogyman.

What did you like best about this story?

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.

Have you listened to any of Jake Urry’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

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.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

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.

Any additional comments?

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.
