The beautiful thing about life is that it isn't perfect.
Evan Lansing manages to eke out a living as a photographer, capturing the beauty of severely marred and deformed people. He's content with his meager existence, but his longtime girlfriend, Naomi, is looking for more out of life - things that cost money - marriage and children.

He can stay with his brother and his brother's insufferable wife and daughter, or he can move into his deceased mother's remote cabin and renovate it. The solitude of the cabin is an enticing alternative for Evan to start anew. But disturbing things begin to happen once Evan moves in and it leaves him to question if staying with his brother wasn't the better option. And then there are the neighbors...

Had Promise But For Repulsive Protagonist
*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.
Not sure, I haven't had the greatest run with Audiobooks lately.
I have commented on this narrator before, he pauses at the oddest moments which is frustrating. He sounds like a robot.
The long and graphic scene mentioned above where the 30 year old man has sex with his underage neighbour.
