THE GROWNUP A Story by the Author of Gone Girl

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Julia Whelan

Mystery & Suspense • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Julia Whelan narrates this ghost story with insight, depth, and passion. Her reading of Gillian Flynn's Edgar Award-winning short story reverberates with the hardened attitude of its chronicler, a young woman who splits her money-making activities between being a prostitute and a fraudulent clairvoyant. Whelan is energetically matter-of-fact as she shares detailed character background, making what could be sluggish content compelling. The swagger of her performance gradually morphs into terror as the story's plot twists grow darker and more sinister. As she skillfully merges the deceptive characters, a haunting tone, and compelling events, the audiobook doesn't need mood music. Whelan can raise goosebumps and keep listeners on the edge of their seats all by herself. J.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2015]
