Publisher's Summary

“We were a thousand miles away from home when the car gave up the ghost....”

When Jack’s car breaks down in the middle of a cross-country road trip, the mysterious house at the top of the hill is a beacon of hope. If he can borrow a phone to call for help, he’ll be on his way in no time. But someone - or something - has other plans. Soon, Jack finds himself trapped in a nightmare that defies logic, where a depraved killer on the loose is the least of his problems. Will Jack escape before it’s too late?

A house full of strangers.

An unsolvable mystery.

A night that won’t end.

Welcome to Bedside Manor.

A Must If You Enjoy Tales From The Gas Station

To say this book is good would be a grave understatement. Ever since I found Tales From The Gas Station on MrCreepyPasta's YouTube channel I was hooked on Jack Townsend's literary work. I am grateful that he let MrCreepyPasta read his original versions of Tales From The Gas Station so I could be introduced to his work. Not only are they very well written they are also funny to the point I cry. Jack and Jerry are 2 people I will never forget.

Wonderful and true.

9.9 out of 10.
Why?
Same audio from YouTube just in a format Audible could use. Not a bad thing, I will support Jack Townsend and MCP, always.
I just hoped for more addition to the narration or effects. Something different from the original narration on YT. Overall 9.9

Love it however you can get it for free

This is the same audio as the YouTube renditions, save for a few fixed moments of stutter. In the YouTube rendition of the story you can find music based on the atmosphere and more sound effects I believe that the audiobook here has quite a few sound effects and a little bit of music but copyright issues they are unable to use the YouTube format of music. All around a great read and a little better if you like to hear the story and words coming out to pick up on the subtle cues and if you prefer to listen to the story with music you can go on YouTube for the exact same story just with music

Love this addition

I loved this addition to the Tales from the Gas Station stories. It has all of the fun, and still crazy things happening, and it was nice to see them in a different environment.

Just.....WOW

Wow, Another great miss adventure with Jack and Jerry. The people and the supernatural do not disappoint in this one. The only thing I will say is that this one is a giant game of clue that no one wants to play, Dark and funny at the same time Mrcreepypasta as always makes these books unforgettable.

Fantastic series!

I really enjoyed Tales from the Gas Station, so when this popped up in my recommendations I went straight for it, and I'm so glad I did. It's a great continuation of the series, but can also be read (or listened to) as a standalone book, and like the others, it's funny, batsh*t, and brilliant. You know a story is good when you audibly react to it. The cliffhanger ending is upsetting - I need to know what happens next - but I can't wait for the next one. Jack Townsend is fast joining my list of favourite authors.

Excellent fun!

I’ve been really enjoying tales from the gas station, this is mostly just more of the same, albeit brief. It feels the right length though and is the most coherent and self contained of the series so far, you wouldn’t even really need to have read the previous books.

I’ve always found the narrator a little off, he pauses in odd places for just a little too long, I was never sure if that was intentional, like the audio equivalent of a Dutch angle or just inexpert editing which would account for the occasional cough too, but it’s much better in this book, the minor sound effects aren’t too obtrusive and the odd bits of interstitial music does help build some atmosphere.

Overall it’s just a lot of fun.
