Do you even edit, bro?!

Probably the worst podcast I've listened to. Could use a lot of editing, and not only in audio recording, but the story was mediocre at best.

Couldn't even finish it...

I try not to review anything that I don't finish, but this one I felt like I had to. Why? Because despite how many times I tried to get through this, I just couldn't finish listening to the book.

The first reason is that the author just didn't have a good speaking voice & I couldn't help but wonder if he didn't have a friend that could've read this for him- it was some of the worst reading I've heard & that includes people I've seen reading books out loud at public events I've attended. The other is that there are several errors & goofs, which weren't corrected or even attempted to be fixed.

If he were to put this in paper format, I might read it. The story sounded far better than what it was, but it still was sort of bland. I understand that this was free money-wise, but I did pay for it with my time & I felt my time would've been better spent listening to other podcasts.

Not Good

The reading and the story are both the poorest podiobook broadcast I have heard so far. Stay away from this one.

What Happened II ?????

The concept was good. It had potential. As a previous reviewer stated, it's free, so I'm willing to give "growing space". Perhaps, I'm so accustomed to the professionalism of Mike Bennett, JC Hutchins, Scott Sigler, Phil Rossi and others that I have high expectations. Despite the lack of professionalism however, the ending had so much potential but just .... stopped????

Not podcast worthy

I hate to give a bad review, but I have to in this case. The story was interesting at first and held my interest enough to finish the podcast, but the delivery is bad and the story seems disjointed with an unexplained twist at the end that leaves you wondering if you heard right. Final conclusion...don't waste your time listening to this one.

Much better options out there - can't recommend this

Both the story and production fall well below current podcasting standards.

I won't post any spoilers, so it will be a little difficult to explain my disappointment with the story. There are many threads and ideas that just fade quietly away, and also many threads and ideas that come into the latter part of the story more or less out of the blue. Either these frayed threads should be pruned away, or the story should be expanded considerably to fully incorporate them. I'd favor a lot of trimming and a little expanding. The story mentions a web site that I think could be an interesting part of an expansion. As the story stands, the further I listened, the less I cared about the characters and the plot.

When it comes to production, I give podcasters a good deal of leeway. I'm paying nothing to listen, so I'm not going to criticize if someone has an inexpensive setup, lacks an extremely quiet space for recording, or doesn't have a terrific voice via training or good fortune. I do expect the podcaster to respect listeners, however. There's at least one point in the latter part of Sleepwalker (Episode 8?), for example, where the reader stumbles over a sentence multiple times. All of the stumbles are left in the recording. There are multiple cases of similar errors. An occasional trip over a word isn't a problem, because it passes before my mind is pulled out of the story. The bloopers in Sleepwalker pulled me out of the story too many times.

What Happened??????

This is a fairly entertaining story. Some people might find it a little too graphic. I have been waiting for the last episode for a while. I would love to know what happened, even though I think I have an idea. Please Mr. Latch, help me out.

Great story

I found this podcast a few days ago and have already caught up. It's a great story and I am looking forward to more episodes. I've listened to many audiobooks and this is one of my favorites. The characters are well thought out and unlike some audiobooks I actually care what happens to them. Keep up the great work.
