This was rather creepy!

On the Lips of Children - Mark  Matthews

I want to start by thanking the author, Mark Matthews, for giving me a copy of his book in audiobook format.


I love horror, I love to be shocked, I LOVE creepy.  This book delivered. On The Lips of Children is a wonderfully disturbing, original, horror story.  Mark Matthews knows how to tell a story.  The delivery was fast paced and kept me interested and engaged throughout.  The only thing I wish was that I had a chance to feel a little more attached to the main characters and was actually a little put off by Erin.  It would have been nice to have my heart tied to a woman fighting for the life of her child.


I listened to this book and the audiobook was well read.  It was a little distracting when the reader’s voice sounded like it was being read through a cardboard roll when we were listening to the characters thoughts.  3 ½ stars for the narration.  


I also love the cover of this book (creepy/eerie/twisted) but after listening to the story, I don't quite get the connection to the book.  The child, yes, but the setting, no.


I definitely recommend this book!  It was fun!  Thanks Mark!
