I quit my efforts to listen to The Grove at the midway point. I like some of John Rector's novels, but not this one. I like many very dark novels so that is not the issue. The issue is boredom. Narration is OK.

Would you try another book from John Rector and/or Todd Haberkorn?
What was most disappointing about John Rector’s story?
The story was oddly disjointed with no clear path or hook.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Todd Haberkorn?
J. Charles hands down. I would probably suffer through a lousy story just to hear him tell it.
What character would you cut from The Grove?
After listening for two hours I didn't care for any of them. I believe that speaks for itself.
Any additional comments?
The narrator really needs to work on his breathing technique. The writer...better outlining or character development?

This whole story is about a drunk hallucinating about a dead girl he found and kept, on his farm. The narrators voice is dull and dreary, the story is not reconciled and I felt no empathy for any of the characters. I would love to know what other people think.
