Publisher's Summary

WELCOME TO SAFE HAVEN, POPULATION 907...
Nestled in the woods of Wisconsin, Safe Haven is miles from everything. With one road in and out, this is a town so peaceful it has never needed a full-time police force. Until now...
A helicopter has crashed on the outskirts of town and something terrible has been unleashed. A classified secret weapon programmed to kill anything that stands in its way. Now it's headed for the nearest lights to do what it does best. Isolate. Terrorize. Annihilate.
Soon all phone lines are dead and the road is blocked. Safe Haven's only chance for survival rests on the shoulders of an aging county sheriff. And as the body count rises, the sheriff realizes something even more terrifying—maybe death hasn't come to his little town by accident...
WELCOME TO SAFE HAVEN, POPULATION 907... 906... 905...
AFRAID by Jack Kilborn
Are you afraid of the dark? You will be.

Would you try another book written by Jack Kilborn or narrated by Phil Gigante?

Try? yes. expect it to interest me? no.


What was most disappointing about Jack Kilborn’s story?

felt like it was a writen movie. as tho it was done in the wrong medium. There was action and gore followed by action and gore, would make a better movie. I couldn't get excited by most of it.But also all the "good guy" characters made the story decent. But all the "bad guy" characters were pathetic(sorry don't take all this too seriously.) well I was absorbed into the story by the good guys and snaped out of it by the bad guys. These bad guys seem to fit into archetypes that I've seen from american entertainment but they're not scary to me they seem to unreal I don't understand it rather than fear it. The good guys were well written tho SPOLIER kinda that bloody scene in the shelter was god awful. its were i decided to finish the book and start on somthing else.


What three words best describe Phil Gigante’s performance?

He tried hard but the accents were bad and kept changing. I noticed one minor charactor who's voice went from a bad Irish accent to a bad Mexican accent. And saying "boom" instead of claping or mimicking a impact or gunshot sound is lame, destroys the atmosphere, and reminds me Im just listening to someone read a book into a microphone.


Was Afraid worth the listening time?

Could be for you, but not for me


Any additional comments?

Don't take the criticism too seriously, i get that people have taste for this kind of horror im not against it but i didn't enjoy it. Unlike all the reviews here I don't think that the gore was so bad that it could ruin the story. Realy It was not that out there as far as gore in horror stories go. This is one of those horror stories that is about gore and violence and anticipating the next death (also goofy bad guys). Enjoy.
