Children to the Slaughter

Any additional comments?

This spooky story was fun to listen to. I found it convoluted, slow at times and more suspenseful than horrifying but it was fun nonetheless. Jake Urry does a fantastic job, as always. I'll listen to anything he narrates!

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.
