Publisher's Summary

Situated in a beautiful setting abutting the Balarang waterways and located on an acre of natural bushland, this three-bedroom country home is full of promise, character and potential. Featuring private access to the many splendours of Balarang Creek, this idyllic property is perfect for anyone seeking fresh air and serenity.

Nostalgic for childhood summers a world away from his manic Melbourne life, Dave Johnson purchases a secluded house in a postcard-perfect coastal town. A savvy investment, he convinces his wife. One year on, and his seaside dream has turned into one big headache, with his tenants not paying rent, and now simply vanishing into thin air, leaving all their belongings behind. Summoned back to the house to inspect the abandoned property, Dave and his wife Lisa become trapped in the isolated spot after their car breaks down. Spooked and alone, they become lured into investigating what really happened to their mysterious tenants.

I hate this book. Here's why:

It's late at night and I still have to go pee, but now I'm too spooked. Nice job, authors! Also, I will surely check out other work of these writers, because a) the writing is really good and engaging; and b) who needs sleep anyway? Good night!

Glad I got it for free

Story moved quickly and was very well narrated but the plot and characters were insipid to say the least. Glad I didn’t have to pay for it!

Must Listen! A+

Psychological thrillers make for intoxicating audiobooks and Still House does not fall short. Luke Arnold’s gravelly voice draws the listener in with a nuanced characterisation of Dave’s tension and insecurity. The contrast of Sibylla Budd’a crisp elocution and impassioned narration brings Lisa to life. A nod to the lonely Australian landscape counterposed to the picturesque coastal holiday dream, this story of Still House is one you cannot miss.

Absolute rubbish

I would be ashamed to have written this . Maybe a good story to scare children you don’t like .

Don’t waste 3 hours listening to this rubbish .

Great psychological thriller

I loved Still House! Great story line that did have me guessing a fair bit and really sucked me in, and actually had me on the edge of my seat in a few places. I loved how the tone of the book kept shifting - is a crime story, is it supernatural? The performances were outstanding! I've never listened to an audio book with two performers and this worked so well to narrate the male and female chapters. I thoroughly enjoyed this.

Umm...

Performance was great, story was at best... mundane.

Saw the issue and outcome miles away, listened to Christians other book "the wife and the widow" that book was something else entirely, this book, at best, must've been nothing but a pay day.

Brilliant!

Engaged me right from the start. could not stop listening. Short but action packed. not for the faint hearted. A bit disturbing and I found it scary. Very gripping read. Narrators did an outstanding job. cant believe this was a free read!

Another winner

I'm really enjoying these short novellas by Christian White. Love the supernatural element that is usually explained by twist. Keep them coming!
