Publisher's Summary

I am no longer among the living - at least, I don't think I am. I don't remember my name, my age, or even my sex. I don't feel. I can't smell. I hear, but sounds don't register emotional responses anymore. I see, but it's all in muted gray. No vibrant colors.
No sense of time, space, awareness. I just float like a weightless cloud drifting through the limitless universe. I don't know where I am or how I arrived at this point. Ebony nothingness has swallowed me whole.
Can you help me? Will you help me? I need to know. Want to know. Have to know.
Who am I?
Where am I?
How do I escape this black void?
Please, help me.

was an entertaining and thrilling short story

The beginning was mystifying. I did not know what was going on at all, as the first few chapters were told from different characters' points of view. It was rather intriguing. Then, bit by bit, the story came together magically, and everything got tied up wonderfully in the end. The way Ashley Fontainne weaved it all together was one of the things I really enjoyed about the story. The ending was rather satisfying. It is very difficult to say much about the content itself because it could easily spoil the plot. It all begins with a woman in a coma. She can hear people talking.

Basically, Whispered Pain is a very twisted story about sweet revenge that is full of devious characters and convoluted turns. There is deception, greed, betrayal and several deaths. It was quite amazing how much was put into 3 hours of listening. It makes you think about trust and family ties.

The narration by Andrea Emmes was very good. She used a variety of voices and had excellent pacing and intonation. She was very pleasant to listen to. There were no issues with the production quality.

Whispered Pain is definitely worthwhile listening to if you are looking for a short, suspenseful and very original story. This was my first book by Ashley Fontainne and I would certainly try others.

Not quite sure where this one was going.

What did you like best about Whispered Pain? What did you like least?

Enjoyed...characters development, interaction of characters, concepts raised.
Didn't enjoy...most of the male characters were highly unsympathetic, almost gratuitously I felt. The story stumbled at it's resolution, and the ending was less than I had expected.

If you’ve listened to books by Ashley Fontainne before, how does this one compare?

In some ways, understanding what the principals were experiencing is something I need to know and respect more.

Which character – as performed by Andrea Emmes – was your favorite?

She ( please correct this auto-question ) . is very clever in the way the story presented her POV on various aspects of male/female relationships as an integral part of the plot.

Do you think Whispered Pain needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Actually the performance by Andrea is the highlight of the story for me. Thoughtful with enough energy to drive the story forward. Very well done.

Any additional comments?

This is story needs some additional editing and development. There are some disturbing images , both mental and visual, that could upset some listeners.

All that said, I enjoyed this offering, and recommend it, with the reservations previously noted.
