I highly reccomend this book to horror lovers.
If you love the movies 'Jennifer's Body' and 'The Faculty', you'll love this!!

Major Stephen King vibes, but from a female perspective. I absolutely LOVED it!

Need to buy a hard copy now just to own it 😊

I can not wait for the movie!!!

This book certainly deserves a movie all it's own.

The character arcs in this book were so heart felt and real I could feel all the emotion that went into writing this.

At the beginning you expect it to be a standard crime book but let me tell you this book will knock you off your feet!

There are times I got literal goosebumps reading on my couch at night not knowing what was going to be on the next page.

You begin to feel the terror and despair as you follow the story as it begins to unfold in a way you can not predict.

The Whisper Man touches not only on child abduction and the type of person it takes to steal and kill a child, but also explores how sometimes as adults we just aren't the best at really LISTENING to children.

Just because they are young doesn't mean what they have to say doesn't carry any weight. Imaginary friends can be disguised as true secrets waiting to be uncovered.

It will really make you look between the lines in your own life and challenge you.

The Whisper Man is reminiscent of Hannibal, with a killer so enigmatic and the back and forth banter between the police and the alleged killer is delicious!

I don't want to spoil this for anyone so all I'll say is, if you want a book that intricately weaves complicated relationships, secrets and childhood terror into a 'book that you literally can't put down', you need to read this!

James Deleargy has a gift for writing, that's for sure!

the whole time I was guessing and changing my opinion back and forth so it wasn't too predicatble

Even so, the character development was great because we got to see into Chandler's past and why he is the way he is now

I likes how the narrators voice was echoey when reading past events
it really helped distinguish timelines and not confuse the listener

I wont spoil the ending but James leaves us hanging for more!

keep writing dude 👍🏻

Gripping, every last word of it!

Firstly, my respect to the family and Ed and Lorraine Warren.
What they experienced is truly horrific.

and secondly, the narration was AMAZING!!! It felt like there was a whole cast of people. it flowed so well and really added to the atmosphere.

Also, I LOVED how the story was written.
Like a fiction novel in 3rd person, but giving actual day to day accounts of this family's life and what they went through.

I will be binge reading all of these :)

That twist though!!<br />
