This was creeptastically fun! The description of poor Vivian was excellent, the story felt well paced, and the detail was just right, taking us along for the ride that Ulrich was led down. Really well done. The only issue I found was toward the end. I may have misunderstood (it does happen, after all!) but it seemed wrong. He talked about checking the papers for certain names for a while after the incident (trying really hard not to give spoilers haha), but then it was the next day after this part of the story, and I was a bit confused. It didn't really mess the book up or anything, but I noticed it and got pulled out of the tale at the end. Again, I may have just heard wrong!
The narrator is AMAZING! I admit to being a sucker for listening to accents, and he's got one! He did the regular-American-Joe accents just right, and, DUDE. He used sound effects. He didn't over use them, just occasionally, and just enough to really enhance the listening experience. I loved it!
Over all, I really enjoyed this. If you like detective stories, paranormal, hauntings, and a touch of heartbreak, I would definitely recommend this.
