Publisher's Summary

Bent on taking over the earth, the deadly Thone have planted a monstrous device on our planet's surface. Trapped inside is a group of scientists, spies, and innocent bystanders. Part maze, part torture chamber, part laboratory, the house of doors is a test. If its captives survive, the Thone will withdraw from earth and leave us in peace. 

Survival seems impossible. At every turn of the labyrinth, the prisoners encounter alien worlds and terrifying monsters ripped from their own subconscious fears. Only by defeating the demons within can these men and women escape the house of doors and save the earth.

Awful Narration

This is a great story with horrible narration and acoustics. It sounds like it was recorded on tape while inside a cave. I was very disappointed because it is an excellent story that is ruined.

Horrible sounding narration.

The story line is good and I would love ANY one else narrating this book. For one thing it sounded like it was recorded from a tape cassette. Also I could never tell who was speaking. Great story line though.

Excellent Read

This book DOES start out rather slow. However once it picks up, it's non-stop and difficult to put down. By far one of the best books I've read. I'm pretty stoked they brought it to audible!

Good story - Narration hit and miss

I read this book maybe 10 or more years ago. It's a great Sci Fi story, very typical of Brian lumley and I wanted to re visit to pass the journey to work. However, I couldn't get used to the narrator who seems to warble his way through the book, which in turn made me lose interest and I had to rewind a few times. Also, the sound quality drops considerably around mid way to a very low bit rate which just made things worse. Hopefully, if audible consider the sequel, it will be better.

Great story spoilt by the tinny sound .

The narration was good but the sound is very tinny and irratating, to the point that you want to turn it off.
