Publisher's Summary

A young wife and mother - new to this town and to its secrets - learns just how much she doesn’t know in this tingly tale of all the things hiding in the dark at the top of the stairs, from bestselling author Brandi Reeds.

While renovating her Victorian home, Ana Clementine finds an ornate door buried under forty years of earth. Once she restores it to the attic, she starts hearing whispers, her loving husband has become a stranger, and her baby daughter learns a chilling new word. Maybe Ana has unlocked the house’s secrets. Or maybe she’s becoming just a little unhinged herself.

Brandi Reeds’s Oak Avenue is part of Dark Corners, a collection of seven heart-stopping short stories by bestselling authors who give you so many new reasons to be afraid. Each story can be read in a single sitting. Or, if you have the nerve, you can listen all by yourself in the dark.

Ok story, terrible narration

I thought the story was, “Ok”
But the end was...well without spoiling this short read, the end of the story was not that great. The narration was awful and it really ruined the story for me I think. Had I read it without listening, I probably would have given 4 stars to the story itself.

The performance ruined it for me

The story was ok (felt very cliche) but the narration was terrible. Distracted me from the story and several times I almost stopped altogether. Why do her make characters all sound ridiculous. She should have stuck to telling the story and not acting out the voices.

Can we talk about the narrator?

Absolutely awful, I thought it was a robot until she deepened her voice for the male lines.
The story itself was lame, it had potential, but translated weak and pathetic, just like the protagonist.

The not-so scary door

The tone of the story was set-up nicely, but I rapidly lost interest during the second half. The narrator did a fine job with what she had to work with.

Interesting concept, poor execution.

My biggest problem with this story is the narration. The actor uses a ludicrous falsetto for the men’s voices. They sound stoned and mentally challenged. It’s just odd, and distracting.
My second issue with this book is the weak ending.
The book was free, so I do not want to be ungrateful, but if I had purchased it, it would be a return.

never have I ever

written a poor review but the narrator is awful and made this unlistenable, just glad it was short so I made myself suffer through. Her male voice is dull and drawn out and they all sound the same, not a bad story overall, just wish I hadn't had to suffer. I will be avoiding this narrator going forward...
