I definitely recommend the audiobook.
This was so much better than The Whisper Man, in my opinion. I really liked the main characters and it was more fast-paced. Maybe part of why I liked it more was because I listened to the audiobook so it seemed to go by quicker. But I definitely liked the story and the way it was told better too. Based on other reviews, if you loved The Whisper Man, you might not like this. But if you were underwhelmed by it, I recommend you give this a try.
hly enjoyed this story. It hit all the marks for horror. It was creepy and in certain parts chilling and unexpected.
I loved the way this was told through different timelines and different perspectives. The transitions always felt seamless.
My favorite part of the book was the big twist at the beginning of part 3. I definitely didn’t see that coming. It actually made me a bit emotional.
My big problem was the ending. It was all over the place and pretty messy. Which is a shame I was hoping for more of an impact at the end?
However, all that said it was still a solid read.
