Publisher's Summary

Spanning over 100 years of mid-Michigan history, The Eaton tells the story of Sam Spicer, a young entrepreneur who purchases the dilapidated Michigan Central Railroad Depot in Eaton Rapids with the dream of opening a hot new martini bar. But when he and his friends discover an abandoned underground hotel directly beneath the property, they must discover what happened to the original guests—before their own time runs out.
The Eaton is the debut novel of John K. Addis, and combines a flashback-based narrative structure with the gruesome style of '80s horror classics, creating a unique new voice critics are calling "fresh, original, and truly terrifying."

Scary but explicitly gruesome

I liked this book better than I expected--really held my attention, super suspenseful and creepy. A warning to some that it gets pretty detailed in some gory/gruesome scenes.

A great choice!!

Based on some of the story points in the summary, I decided to give it a try. I admit "debut novel" and "80's style horror" worried me that it might be weak or cheesy and I shouldn't get my hopes up too much.

But honestly, it was an absolutely great listen in story and narration. The characters and pace were wonderful. I never became bored. The setting, an abandoned location, which caught my attention in the first place, was perfect! In that respect, "The Eaton" most definitely exceeded my hopes and expectations. The narrator proved to be very very talented and at one point was able to send shivers through me when voicing the character of a demented old woman.

This book was a perfect story to curl up for a good old can't-put-it-down horror. My only regret is that I can't "un-read" it to be able dive back in and start it over totally fresh.
