What a Home Indeed!!

Wow, this was an excellent book. Great descriptions and storyline. Nice surprise ending. Out of 200+ audiobooks I've read this one moves up to the top 20 (at least in the suspense genre). Don't expect Ender's Game or something like that. This is more in the Koontz catagory. Buy and enjoy!!

Refreshingly Good...

I normally read Dean Koontz, Stephen King, Anne Rice. I gave this book a try. It was slow to start but still interesting. Then it a has a wow moment and I couldn't stop listening. If you like Koontz or King, you'll enjoy this one.

Great Story

This was a great story that kept me interested until the very end. It would make a great horror movie. The character development was great. They felt very "real." But I think that a little too much time was spend developing minor characters. I kept waiting for them to become major players and they never were.

Tedious!

The first three quarters of the book are totally tedious! The main character is ridden with guilt and pain of having failed as a MAN-the protector and provider, and that is repeated throughout the book ad nauseam. If not for the last part of the book (where something actually starts happening), the whole thing would be a complete waste of time. Quite disappointing.

Wonderful

I find that I either love or hate Orson Scott Card's work. This was definitely one I loved along with Lost Boys and Enchantment. It was amazingly involving and I fell in love with the characters.

Slow, slow, slow

I love Orson Scott Card. This was not at all what I expected. I was three quarters of the way through and I still kept wondering when it would get interesting. The last three hours are the only part worth listening to and I don't think it was worth listening to the first several hours.

There are so many other books written by him that are much better.
