There are some books that do not lend themselves well to the audio experience. This is a perfect example. It is a meandering, ephemeral work. I found myself replaying many parts as my mind wandered and I was lost to what was happening. The story is not as described, I believe it to be neither haunting or suspenseful. The narration adds to the tone of the novel and therefore adds no enhancement to the characters or pace. Perhaps I would have liked it more off the page.

Not the least of which is the stunning portrayal of how childhood is a nightmare all its own.
Mr. Hurley is a master of drawing his reader into the atmosphere he has created, so that although circumstances may differ, emotions and terrors are quite personal, and unforgettable. I'm off to find his short fiction, and patiently await his next novel.
