I listened to the audible audiobook. I like the sound effects, but I'm not a fan of the music. I liked the narrator and how she gets into character. uncle john's accent and the children's voices come to mind. She uses nice effects for the mummy moans.
The kids are excited to visit their uncle johnathan while grandma visits the hospital. When they arrive, they find it's a little more creepy than they expected. I enjoyed the story like I do with many goosebumps, but I was hoping for mummies to attack.
The "background music" was so loud it overpowered the narrator. Who wants music in an audiobook, anyway? Either the producer/director/publisher of the audiobook didn't believe the narrator was good enough to carry it off (and I can't comment on that, since the narrator's track was inaudible above the din of mood music), or they believed the listener couldn't follow the plot without some assistance. Either way, this was a waste of a book credit. Sad, too, because Stine's writing is so enjoyable.
