What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
*I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review*
The book started out with promise. The character and plotline was interesting and the build up of creepiness was great. But then the book just took a nosedive into the most depraved and disgusting scenes and I had to stop listening. The character himself turned into a stereotypical creep - masturbating to disturbing thoughts or pictures procured from facebook without the woman's knowledge or consent. That was bad enough, I thought. Then came the (very long and extremely graphic) scene of this same 30 year old character having sex with his underage neighbour. It was gratuitous and unnecessary. That was the final straw and made me sick to my stomach.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Not sure, I haven't had the greatest run with Audiobooks lately.
How could the performance have been better?
I have commented on this narrator before, he pauses at the oddest moments which is frustrating. He sounds like a robot.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Home Is Where the Horror Is?
The long and graphic scene mentioned above where the 30 year old man has sex with his underage neighbour.

Wow! What a gruesome and perverse horror story! I loved it. I am a photographer myself like the main character, Evan. That made this story even more enjoyable for me, although my taste in subject matter is a bit different. Evan prefers to photograph deformities and scars. The story is very creepy throughout and just gets more gruesome and perverse as the story continues. Excellent narration by Rick Gregory!
