Publisher's Summary

From the bestselling author of The House Guest comes a chilling story set deep in the woods...

With his marriage over and his career in freefall, journalist Tom decides to reconnect with his fourteen-year-old daughter, Frankie. Desperate to spend precious time together now that they live an ocean apart, he brings her to Hollow Falls, a cabin resort deep in the woods of Maine.

From the outset there’s something a little eerie about the place—strange whispers in the trees, windchimes echoing through the forest—but when Tom meets true-crime podcasters David and Connie, he receives a chilling warning. Hollow Falls has a gruesome history: twenty years ago this week, a double slaying shut down the resort. The crime was never solved, and now the woods are overrun with murder-obsessed tourists looking to mark the grim anniversary.

It’s clear that there’s something deeply disturbing going on at Hollow Falls. And as Tom’s dream trip turns into a nightmare, he and Frankie are faced with a choice: uncover the truth, or get out while they still can.

Great Story HORRIBLE NARRATOR

Brilliance audio owes Mark Edwards an apology for casting such a mediocre narrator for his truly engaging story.

Tired of poor performances

Another winner by Mark Edwards. Just getting tired by the underwhelming narrators lately. This was a very poor performance imo and took away from the overall enjoyment of this great author.

Narration is laughable

I barely made it through the second chapter. The narrator is horrible! The hideousness of his adult American voice is surpassed only by the voice of his daughter. His normal voice is pompous and grating. Just no.

Narrator kills it

The Narrator's American accents are nothing but caricatures of whiney teenagers, regardless of the age of the character being narrated.
The reading of signs and the like are done in such a peculiar way, using teenager angst in the reading. It was offputting. Then again, the story itself was also such a cliche.

The story is great!



Wow! I'm never sure what to write in a review, but I think this is one of my new favorites from Mark Edwards! The Hollows will grab you from the beginning and keep you on the edge of your seat until the end. The story is creepy and chilling, and moves along at a nice pace. This would be a great book to read near Halloween, or in the winter months when it gets dark out much earlier. I think this book is much more in the horror/thriller genre and reminiscent of Stephen King.

The narrator is not my favorite for this book. I own several books narrated by Guy Mott that I enjoy, but he talks with a weird halting at the end of all of his words in this book and it's a bit distracting while listening.

This was ridiculous

I liked the earlier books he wrote. These are turning into a second rate Stephen King. That accent he had for the kid, Frankie, was awful. Like a stereotypical New York accent. The story itself, unrealistic responses to situation. One of the very few I refused to endure to the end, made it 8 hours in.

Good Book, Strange Vocal Choices

An enjoyable story. The narration was fine but the narrator made some strange choices.

The English daughter lives in Albany for three years but has a thick Brooklyn accent ?

I'm now used to people messing up a Maine accent but these people sound like they are from down south. Regional American accents are practically dead, let it rest. They are too easy to mess up.

Also, why can't narrators do their homework and look up how local names are pronounced? Quite a few mistakes here. Not a big deal very few people will notice.

Also the narrator goes from emoting the dialog in one sentence then pivots to robot voice in the next. So strange.

I enjoy Mark Edwards novels, and this one is no exception. If you enjoyed his others you will enjoy this one too.

Mixed feelings

I am a fan of Mark Edwards & his extreme style of writing. He always leaves you guessing until the end. This time I was disappointed in some of the narration but not only that even surpassing that was the absolutely foolish choices he and his daughter were making with their safety. The ending was creepy!

Fairly good story

This is kind of “ghosts and gouls” in the beginning, but stick it out because it gets better! The narration isn’t the best, but the story itself is good. Definitely not the best book I’ve read but also not the worst. Worth the credit.

Okay

A good book to listen to when you don’t feel like thinking too hard. Story was okay, pretty edge of your seat suspenseful towards the end. Quite far out there as far as believe-ability factor. I do agree with most that the narrator was, yeah, pretty awful!! But not so awful as to prevent me from listening all the way through to the end. Worth a listen as a freebie from Kindle Unlimited….☺️
