Summary

Daniel Martin has never forgotten his childhood encounters with Frank Watkins, the man who built his family a summer home out of cardboard and plywood. Frank's gaze was oddly confusing, as if he was attempting to discern the proper way to behave because he didn't know how to respond in a human manner. Since Frank obviously wasn't an alien, young Daniel thought maybe the man was crazy. In the end, Daniel would learn the terrifying truth about Frank Watkins. And as an adult, Daniel is about to discover there are more of them out there.

Brought on a whim!

I got this on a whim, not really expecting much. I am glad to say I was totally wrong.

What can I say, I absolutely loved it!

It was a great tale, scary, funny with totally unexpected twists and turns that blew my mind. I found myself drawn into the unfolding story and found it very hard to put it down, let just say I was listening to this non-stop.

The narration was brilliant and I was totally captivated by the narrators tone and expressions.
I will be looking out for more books by this author as well as books narrated by Chris, the combination was brilliant and if there are more collaborations with these 2, I will defiantly be giving them a go.

Good, But

it's a good book The narrator did a good job. unfortunately it seems the book's last pages are missing like the writer gave up once the main story has finished there is no wrap up.

Trigger warning!!!

Personally I think the book was neither here nor there. Some parts were very good and then it would back track and I’d have to concentrate very hard to get through it.

The rape scene was very unnecessary and made me feel very uncomfortable whilst listening to it. It seemed to just come out of nowhere and that let the book down quite a lot!

Creepy and atmospheric

I'm a huge Stephen King fan and this book equalled most of them. very different storyline. Ending was a bit lame but the rest made up for it. Narrator was very good, not annoying in any way. If you like horror, listen to this.
