A bloody good time!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Housemates?

It's hard to say without giving anything away! There are some geniune "squick" moments, but they're all very well done and described, leaving just enough to your imagination. And as Han Solo would say, I can imagine quite a bit!

What about Chris Barnes’s performance did you like?

Very well done. The accent took a moment for my ears to adjust to, but once they did, I had no problems with it. Mr. Barnes did a fine job of differentiating the character voices and giving just the right emotional weight to the scenes.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I definitely had more than a few "gasp" moments while listening! Thankfully I was never foolish enough to read it while eating, but there were a few times that I kind of wished I wasn't driving while I got through a fairly graphic part!

Any additional comments?

The story is overall well-crafted, however, I feel like the last hour/last few chapters are a bit padded. Once the climax is reached, the let down takes a bit longer than it should. Also, the book could've used at least one more pass by the continuity editors- there are a few times where the book seems to lose track of how many housemates are in the house, and one chapter gets repeated!
