Product Description

Review

Whisper by Michael Bray. Review by Mariane Spitzer. **Disclaimer: I received a free copy of Whisper for review. This did not, in any way, affect my review of the book or Mr. Bray s ...writing. The book opens with a terrified child running through the woods. It immediately grabs you and pulls you into the story. Although the story does weave through the past and present, each section flows seamlessly into the next. There aren t any jerky time changes, and each change makes sense pulling you into the next scene. It kept me wanting to continue reading to know how the story was playing out in both the past and present. All of the characters are well developed. Their descriptions are detailed and believable. They could be people you know or see on the street each day. Their dialogue is what you would expect, and reflects their individual character. The plot was intriguing. A young married couple buying their dream house. That dream began to unwind when they stepped through the door. This may sound familiar, but don t let that fool you. Mr. Bray has found a new road to terror. He builds his story from several angles, each one frightening on its own. When he combines them, you will find yourself wrapped in a story you will not soon forget. From beginning to end, the plot moves forward. At times it s fast to pull you quickly into the terror that is building, and at others slowly to allow you to take in all the details around the characters and their situation. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a scary read with many twists and turns. I enjoyed it and give it 5 stars. I like Mr. Bray s style and it was well written. --Mariane Spitzer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Wow! What more can I say?

I thought that I would use the Easter Holiday to start reading Whisper, I began to read mainly at night knowing I wouldn't have to get up early the next day but it also extended to during the day.

I struggled!

Struggled to put it down.

Whisper, by Michael Bray, is a must read for any horror/supernatural fan out there.

From start to finish, (especially the finish) you wont be disappointed. It has everything from the nice couple Steve and Melody, to the sleazy Donovan, to last but not least, the forces. Whilst reading you just can't imagine how it will end, there are some real surprises within the book too. Not going to tell you, you just have to go and get your own copy

Michael has a way with words, his writing is right up with the Stephen King and Dean Koontz books, the cliffhangers between each chapter, will keep you reading to find out what is going to happen, not just the next chapter but the chapter after that.

I was left alone during the day for an hour while I was finishing off the final chapter, I got creeped out, thinking I was being watched {shudder}. Now when I go into the kitchen at night, I wont look out the window thanks Michael no seriously thank you for writing such a chilling and brilliant book.

Do I recommend Whisper? Hmm let me see! Well I can't wait to read more of Michael Bray's books and I suggest you do too

When Steve and Melody buy Hope House, they can't believe their luck. The house is beautiful, isolated and the perfect place to begin their lives together. Unfortunately for them, Hope House has a deadly secret. A secret that the local community will go to any lengths to keep.

Whisper is, without a doubt, one of the best ghost stories I've read in the last few years. Not since Heart Shaped Box has a tale chilled me like this. All of the characters are well drawn and believable, and Bray builds the tension slowly, but relentlessly, interspersing the quieter moments with flashbacks showing what happened to the previous owners of the house.

And it works brilliantly.

As the story progressed, I became increasingly drawn into the world that Bray paints, and I read the last half of the book in a single sitting, because I just could not put it down.

Highly recommended.

I must say that Michael Bray has the potential to equal the likes of Stephen King and Richard Laymon. This is the first book of his I have read and I was captured by the suspense right away.
Story wise, without spoiling too much; start with a house in the middle of nowhere, add in a city couple and some freaky goings on and you've got yourself a cocktail of horror and thrills. Very well written, with plenty of description that enables you to visualise the settings, this book will make a great film or tv series.
His use of flashbacks was impressive and leaves you in suspense waiting to see the roots of the story. Often in books with flashback the story becomes muddied and the plot wanders but Michael kept everything to the point, not allowing himself to drag out the story for a bigger page number and he kept the scenarios separate enough that you wont become lost as to where or when you are.
The only downfall for me is merely my downfall as a reader, as my imagination is pretty poor, having spent a long time reading textbooks. His description of the main characters is minimal if not non-existent. Unfortunately as I don't even know anyone with the names I found it hard to associate a face to the characters which was a pain.
But it still only took me a couple of days to read this, including a couple of past midnight readings much to my brains disgust.
This book will envelop you into a world of thrill and curiosity, leaving you wanting more. I know I certainly cant wait for Michaels next book!

I usually avoid reading anything that the reviews say is anything like Stephen King as apart from his early stuff, I find him a bit long winded and boring. I'm glad I give Whisper a go as I enjoyed this book very much. I liked the way the writer jumped between time periods easily and without confusion. This book has a bit of everything really. Curses, serial killers, ghosts and even a witch. While there's a lot going on, Mr Brays writing style is clear and concise which made the book an easy read. I would most certainly read something else be Michael Bray.

Enjoyable haunted house tale overall, but I couldn't help noticing that there are certain aspects of the story which are totally inconsistent with reality. Firstly the builder of Hope House goes to discuss the project with his business partner whose office is in London, yet the house is in the USA. Considering the time and money involved in a transatlantic round trip in the first decade of the 19th century, I found this very odd. Secondly, the generations of the Jones family make no sense. Michael Jones builds the house in 1809, and in modern era his great-grandson, Will, owns the local pub. From the plot we can deduce that Will's grandfather must have been already born when the house was built. Will is, I would guess, in his 40s, yet has a grandfather who would have be around 200 years old? Not likely. Also, Will states that his great-grandfather built the pub in 1899. Granted, it wouldn't necessarily be the same great grandfather, but even so, the time difference is far too big for two men who would be of roughly the same generation.
