Summary

From best-selling author Victor Methos comes a gripping, edge-of-your seat thriller in which a group of young friends travel through remote woods in search of the legendary Bigfoot.

Mia is reluctant to go camping with her boyfriend and sister, who are graduate students working on a dissertation about American folklore. But ultimately, they convince her to help document the trip. The group sets off to Black Creek, a remote destination in the Pacific Northwest where Bigfoot has allegedly been sighted. They think they’re prepared for anything, but their sense of terror grows as they find more and more evidence to suggest the monster really is out there. Eventually, Mia realizes she’ll be lucky just to make it out of the woods alive.

Amateur writing and lazy sound effects.

I wanted to like this because the overall idea was quite charming and I was in the mood for an adventure. My problems with this audiobook are threefold: 1) The writing is amateur. Repeated and inconsistent descriptions of the same 'monster'. "Filled the doorway", "size of a single story house" 2) Lazy uses of the phrases such as, "biggest I've ever seen". And 3) The effects department apparently had only one audio clip for a monster. This zombie-esque moan was used over and over, to back up words like "cry", "yeowp" and "wail". The said effect did also not fit with a supposedly 'fast' creature, more a lumbering neanderthal. Again, I liked the idea but, poorly delivered.

An obligation story too lazy for No Sleep podcast

Big foot is real in this story but most of it is dedicated to the characters getting ragdolled so hard but surviving it's like they are in the fast and furious franchise. Lackluster voice acting by someone with good equipment but no range who finally gives up when she doesn't have to play at a male timber and switches between kinda of whiney and want to rip my ear buds out whiney. Poor sense of timing kills all pacing, immersion, and suspense. You can tell she got a flat rate for the gig and just knocked it out over an afternoon.
Could not get invested in the slightest and even as background noise to my day it was plodding. This has all the earmarks of a contract obligatory release, characters with the depth and function of cardboard paintball targets because the author didn't care for their story so why should we.

Lame Ending

Its a quick story that wasn't bad to listen to until the ending which was dumb and didn't match the emotion of the rest of the story. It was free on Plus so do what you will with this review.

Good book

This was a good spooky short story. It was told well and vividly. It was almost believable in fact. Good read.

Devils of Black Creek

A great, scary cryptid story. College students making a documentary about cryptids, decide to visit a place known to locals. Locals don’t go there and they find out the reason why. People do go missing in the forest. A great scary tale, with a great cast.

Really fun, short read!

I’ve been listening to nonfiction for months. This was a pleasant change. The narration made it believable. It was a nice addition to gardening for an afternoon.

Exciting and fast paced

I enjoyed the narration and excitement of the story. Edge of your seat kind of story.

Suspenseful and entertaining

I thought this was very well narrated. I enjoyed the story very much. I actually listened to it almost entirely in one sitting. It kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to know what happened.

GRIPPING!

I'm 59, spent a lot of time in the woods, and don't scare much. There were points in this story my hair stood up. Great job.

Hated the ending

Who goes in the deep woods without weapons?! I had hoped for a better ending.
