Surprisingly good.

There were a couple trips where I cringed...such as, "first time I craved a drink" when the protagonist had mentioned he craved a drink before...but all in all, very well done. Subtle. I downloaded this because it was free and I usually use free included with my membership to listen to while I am working. I actually had to stop this a few times and rewind because I wanted to hear the last plot twist unlike most of the freebies which you can pick back up just about anywhere like a bad soap opera. Had to rewind the ending a few times...won't say more. I might spend a credit on this author's other books. It's a good read.

Loved hearing Joshua Jackson

Interesting story concept. I was drawn to this book because of Joshua Jackson. I hope he chooses to do more narrating. I will give this author another read.

Fantastic Book

This is one of the most suspenseful books that I have I my library. The narrator was a big part of making this book enjoyable.

Traumatized

Sorry to be negative but I found so many parts of this to be disturbing, vile, upsetting and nightmare inducing. I didn’t even finish it even though I wanted to know what happened. But I could not take the disgusting grossness of much of it. Blessings to the author and apologies for my honesty.

Well worth a listen.

Mr. Pyper has crafted a solid supernatural mystery. Full of depth, and nuance. What I enjoyed most was the Pyper's exploration of the effects of "the gift" on the recipient. Although the tone was different, it reminded me of "Odd Thomas". Joshua Jackson gave a respectable reading, though at times I had to rewind to be sure who had said what. But better that than suffering through the pain of falsetto female voices!

Joshua Jackson brought an ok story to life!

The reading of this story was incredible! The inflection and pauses, voices, all perfect and created a compelling and intriguing listening experience. You felt the story come alive because of the reading of it so intuitive. The story was ok, not bad but just ok, lots of plot holes, and cringe worthy lines. But Joshua Jackson took an ok story and made it a can't stop listen. Disappointed it's over and hope Joshua Jackson decides to breath life into many more stories in the future.

perfect casting

Interesting supernatural crime thriller. Joshua Jackson perfectly cast as protagonist, though maybe not as skilled at bringing the rest of the characters to light as some of the more regular narrators but the story is really a one man show anyway.

Not my usual thing but enjoyable

I expected this to be a detective story with a psychic twist, it turned out to be more of a mixture than that. I normally like books grounded in reality, but this was well written and the story carried me along. There are some clever twists, an unexpected ending, and it’s a book that leaves you thinking

a bit bland

I didn't like it and struggled to finish it. the idea is brilliant and something I'd normally enjoy but it was just so drawn out and dull. the characters were boring and kept sitting around talking rubbish instead of trying to find a child buried alive?!? there was no sense of urgency or tension, but this may have (in part) been due to the incredibly robotic and monotone narrator. I've never lost focus on an audio book before, but my mind wandered all over the place with this! I'm so glad I didn't pay for it as it's included in the plus catalogue.

Boring

I liked the inital premise so thought I'd give it a go as it was included in Audible Plus.

The first half was ok but the last half was incredibly dull. It was much too long and drawn out. I had to listen on 1.6 just to get through it! I can't recommend this. Would've been better if it was shorter and without so many pointless conversations.

What an amazing story!

This book had me hanging on every word from the beginning.
The narrator has a great voice and told the story so well, he was completely believable in this role.
I will be looking out for this author again especially if his books are read by Joshua Jackson!!!

I could not stop listening to this book! Found it refreshingly different and so compelling. Wondering if this is a one off or the start of a series - hope its the latter!

Monotone dull

I can’t understand why people said Joshua Jackson was good! Maybe they’re confusing his dull flat reading with his great acting.
If you didn’t get scared to death by the story which was ok , you would be bored to death by the narration. He only has one tone - flat.

Riveting story & brilliant narration

Gripping story from the get-go. Recent narration by Joshua Jackson. Really hope he does more. Clever plot. Very well constructed and delivered. Got it free but would very happily have paid. Thank you!!!

(Listened to it at 1.2x speed which was perfect)

Narration let down

On the whole this is a great story, well written and interesting. The book is let down by terrible narration, monotone and rushed. I slowed the speed down to listen, this helped significantly.

Disappointing Narrating

I had high hopes that the narration would be amazing but I agree with some of the reviews. Joshua Jackson has a very flat tone the whole way through. I was so bored
