Fun Listen!

This book was a nice listen. Maybe a bit to scary for young children but it held my interest. It was well written and offered up some good life lessons.

holds up!

I definitely read this book several times as a kid. as an adult I was a little apprehensive to revisit it, but wanted a dose of nostalgia. Holds up better than a lot of books from my childhood. the protagonists responses to situations felt mostly very real for a kid her age, which I appreciated. A good read for kids, and okay read is an adult if you want something pretty easy and a dose of nostalgia for what it's like to be a kid with an interest in mysteries.

nostalgic story from my youth

this was my favorite book when I was young
I lived to revisit it this way

I always wished for an amazing doll house like the one in the story

I can remember the chill that went down my spine when I read certain parts of this as a little girl

it was my first introduction to a "scary" story

Childhood favorite

My mom read this story to me and my brother many times before bed for years. It terrified me at that point in my life. It began a lifelong journey of loving murder mysteries. I didn't care for the person reading the story. Too many of the people reading stories on audible are annoying. That is my critic'.

great story

I always loved this book and movie. I did see that there were complaints about the reader but I didn't see an issue with how she read for each character.

Special Time With My Girls

The dollhouse murders

The person reading the story is very dull and boring. Couldn't distinguish between characters.

Surprising and brilliant

After the first chapter, I wasn't really sure how the plot would unfold but it was unexpected and quite brilliant. An engrossing tale that keeps you hooked. I'm very glad I gave it a chance.

I loved point horror as a young teen and wish that I had read this back then! But better late than never.
