Bonnie and Clyde on crack

For the first few minutes, I wasn't sure I enjoyed the narrator however I persisted. By the end of the first chapter, I was in love.
She perfectly switches between characters, lending more personality to them.
Essentially, an insane version of the ruthless, couple in love, killers on a road trip tale, I enjoyed this one for the over the top violence and ridiculous kills.
Definitely NOT for the faint hearted but I'm a desensitised old woman. I could see a certain plot point coming a mile away (dear God don't read this book if ur pregnant) but I enjoyed how it played out .
It almost reads as an over the top, b grade horror movie but it was a highly entertaining 5+ hours.

Seriously bad narration

I lasted about 5 minutes and I had to switch the book off as the narration is atrocious. I can't even tell you if the story is any good I was that appaled by the performance.

So sick! So Twisted! Why did I love it?

Ok, granted they used a ton of shock value cruelty and torture but apparently I’m sick, twisted, and weird! Totally loved it. Revenge is a subject I always look for in books and this had me almost cheering at one point! I read the review about the narrator and listened to the sample before buying but it didn’t bother me at all. The killers are young and I thought the artist captured their childish bragging and whining perfectly. Anyway, I need to attend a worship service now and clean my brainball!

The Good, the Bad, and the Sadistic

I really enjoy Jon Athan’s writing style and I never liked horror before. He comes up with some of the most gruesome things and know how to shock you. Chelsea Kirkpatrick's narration was a bit monotone. Although the story was good, it would have been better with a different narrataor. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This book is as exactly as the title says

This book is brutal, I was glad when Harvey sicked Sam on Chas and Clay, the horrible things they did to people, and when Sam started giving them a taste of their own medicine, they sniveled and cried and they were like why are you doing this to us., I am glad what Sam did to them at the end, but I did not like what Sam did to the family at the farmhouse, like Harvey told Sam "you could have went out as the hero" but Sam just sat there and said nothing. So the author left an opening for maybe a book #2....The narration was decent, so if this is your thing , hardcore violence & torture check this book out....I received this free in an audiobook promotion and am leaving my voluntary review.

weird

I didn't enjoy this, but the narrator was really good, not good enough to redeem the bafflingly nonsensical plot, but definitely really good.

AWESOME book with awesome narration!

The Good, the Bad, and the Sadistic is an extremely graphic and intense book in true Jon Athan style. If you're a fan of movies like I Saw the Devil you'll DEFINITELY appreciate this one. The antagonists are extremely sick and the methods the protagonist uses to catch and punish them are very twisted. And as brutally violent this book is Chelsea Kirkpatrick's narration is eerily beautiful. She does a fantastic job and I look forward to listening to more books narrated by her in the future.

5/5 - highly recommended!

Great story

The plot of this book is pretty horrifying. But in the end weirdly satisfying. It grabbed my attention from start to finish.
