Summary

"Fear the living, fear the dead, fear the Unspeakable."
Kenning Hall was more than a country home, it was the family's sanctuary away from the frenetic pace of London, until that day.
What happened that day was so horrifying, so devastating, that the place was left to ruin, until now.
A decade later, 32-year-old Rupert Harrison, the only surviving heir to the Harrison publishing dynasty, has ordered Kenning Hall restored to its former glory.
It's time to go back.
Now, if you think you've heard this story before, think again. This is just the beginning.
Something is waiting at Kenning Hall. Something vengeful, malevolent, and it will follow him home.
This book isn't creepy, it's downright terrifying. Be warned: Daylight will not save you.

Bizarre dreadful erotica masquerading as horror

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Not a clue. Teenage boys maybe?

What will your next listen be?

Something by Bentley Little probably.

Have you listened to any of Matt Addis’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No, but he was very good. Alas, not good enough to make this worth listening to, but I'd like to hear him narrate something better.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.

Any additional comments?

The copious sex scenes are just cringeworthy. There's a hyper focus on one character's breasts, not in a 'touching breasts' way but just describing them constantly. One of the main characters (Rupert) is described so adonis-like, as if the author's desperate to assure the reader that Rupert is super hot, that it becomes laughable. Almost every character is described in a way that feels like the author's trying to persuade the reader to want to have sex with them, and then the sex scenes are so mundane and unrealistic, and yet extremely over-used, that the whole thing is just bizarre. It didn't help that the narrator sounds like Matt Berry, and the whole thing comes across like a lost episode of Darkplace, only worse, and with a severe lack of Richard Ayaode.

Eeriness to the max :O

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would without a doubt, it's perfect for curling up on a grey day and feeling the shivers creep up on you.

What other book might you compare Unspeakable to, and why?

I think I would compare it to something like The Ghost by Robert Harris. Though different in genre, Unspeakable is also full of mystery and sinister twists throughout.

Which character – as performed by Matt Addis – was your favourite?

I would say Elizabeth is best performed, her shrill, cruel and capricious nature is truly captured under Matt's performance.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

"Don't look back."

Ice Cold Thriller!

If you could sum up Unspeakable in three words, what would they be?

Thrilling, chilling, killing!

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed the way it wrapped you up into the nitty gritty of the lives of each individual in the story, and yet managed to drag them all together into this gruesome tale!

What does Matt Addis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I feel he adds an extra atmosphere to the book, he is the perfect narrator, adding and subtracting emotion or tension where it needs to be, and handles the demands of the text very well!

If you could take any character from Unspeakable out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I would take Rachel or Ashley out to dinner because I find them to be the kind of women you absolutely root for in life, they have wit, grit and determination and they are very endearing characters for me.

Any additional comments?

If only this could become some kind of series!

NEEDS AGGRESSIVE EDITING..!!!

This weighty tome is in desperate need of aggressive editing... it's far too long winded,.. taking an entire chapter when a more pleasing synopsis of events could've been summed up in a paragraph or two...
Sigh,... I had SUCH high hopes for this read,.. as I had positively gushed with enthusiasm over his book "Psychosis "
Rating it 5 star all the way, with a
BRILLIANT narrator to boot...
Not so this one , 1 star all around.. it had too many plots,layers of unnecessary dialogue, repetitive whining, wincing, all diluting what
COULD have been a top notch read.
EDIT,.. EDIT,...EDIT...
