I loved all of it but I think the ending was a wonderful way to end this kind of book :)
Good story with dubious sections, rendering the story less believable. Average narration with poor characterisation.
What disappointed you about Haunted?
The story was dry and meandering. I just couldn't bring myself to care about the events or the characters, and I tried! There was zero chill factor or creep factor. I have never been so bored by paranormal events. I couldn't make it much past 60 minutes before I pulled the plug.
What could Dorah L. Williams have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
I can't think of anything. It just didn't appeal to me on any level.
Would you be willing to try another one of Katina Kalin’s performances?
NO WAY! Her narration only added to the problem. I felt like I was five, sitting in the floor of the public library and Miss Katina was reading us a story before nap time. Her portrayal of child characters drove me insane. She used a voice that reminded me of how some people talk to children like they have the intelligence of a doorknob. Her use of a "baby talk" voice elicited actual frowns and grimaces from this reader.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Mega disappointment! I like non-fiction stories that approach the paranormal from middle ground, letting the reader shape opinions and personal atmosphere based on their own perceptions. I was never able to concentrate on the aspects of the haunting because I was too busy not enjoying this book.
Any additional comments?
It didn't work for me at all. The performance was pretty bad BUT that is me. I love stories like those built around Ed and Lorraine Warren's experiences so perhaps I'm tainted. If you like the kind of ghost story one would find haunting the pages of "Good Housekeeping" or "Reader's Digest"... this is your story!

Would you listen to Haunted again? Why?
Yes. I love stories about real haunted houses and this one was chilling and intense.
What did you like best about this story?
How the family held together during the haunting.
What does Katina Kalin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
A very good story teller who brings you right into the book.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Not really, but I found it so good I didn't want to stop listening to it. I'd definitely listen to it again.
Any additional comments?
If you enjoy true haunting stories, you'd enjoy this book.
