So Ambrose Ibsen has done it again!! This book was awesome. The author has created an extremely creepy and terrifying book.
This was a slow burner in a way. We don't get a true sense of what the tablet is, or what it does for a while, but the plot is also fast paced and intense. We are thrown into the story right from the start and from there, it's a never ending series of events and creepy things happening.
The author has a way of making it easy to connect to his characters. They just feel so real. This is no different. I liked all the characters and connected with them easily.
In all, this was a well written and developed book. The world building was awesome and the plot was fascinating. The idea of an unearthed tablet and what it caused was equal parts terrifying as it was captivating.
Jake Urry is such a talented narrator. He has an amazing array of tones and voices and his ability to capture the atmosphere of the book was phenomenal. He just oozed creepiness!! When you pair him with an Ambrose Ibsen novel, it's certain to be a winner!
I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Would you consider the audio edition of Wretchedness to be better than the print version?
Definitely the audio is better as the reader has the perfect voice to creep you out and make your skin crawl!
What did you like best about this story?
I loved the dreadful feeling of waiting for the horrible things to happen as the reader was getting to the scary parts.
Which character – as performed by Jake Urry – was your favorite?
Can't decide. He did them all perfectly. I could picture them each in my mind.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Definitely. Once I was in "the zone" it was hard to do anything else.
Any additional comments?
The absolutely PERFECT reader for this chilling tale.

A very creepy spooky story. I enjoy Jakes narration as he keeps the creepiness of the tale alive & keeps the momentum flowing really well.
The story itself was good, with a few twist and built up to find yourself waiting for what was next.

Narrator Jake Urry, could, if he wanted to do so, make Winnie the Pooh sound sinister - and this is no tale of friendly nursery toys. Instead, Wretchedness is what befalls the protagonists who are brought under the influence of some dark mystery. One which could threaten the world as we know it.
It is a straightforward horror story, creepy in the writing and made even more so by the brilliant narration as Mr.Urry squeezes every comma for creepiness from the text. And a very good ending.
Not for the fainthearted, but otherwise, highly recommended.
