There were some genuinely creepy moments in this book. It's a different premise, kind of goofy, so I wasn't expecting that. Now I wish I had left listening to this until October. Oh well. There was some goofiness to the story but far less than you'd think once you get into the action.
I loved (Perfect Strangers!!!) Bronson Pinchot's parts of the audiobook. They cracked me up especially later on in the book where things changed. The full narrator of the book was lackluster. She had a bland/monotonish quality and some of the voices sounded too similar.
Still, I'd recommend listening to the book if that's your bag or reading it if it isn't.
