Description

Audie Award Finalist, Original Work, 2016

Based on the best-selling, award-winning graphic novel series Locke & Key - written by acclaimed suspense novelist Joe Hill (NOS4A2, Horns) and illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez - this multicast, fully dramatized audio production brings the images and words to life.

A brutal and tragic event drives the Locke family from their home in California to the relative safety of their ancestral estate in Lovecraft, Massachusetts, an old house with powerful keys and fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them. As siblings Tyler, Kinsey, and Bode Locke discover the secrets of the old house, they also find that it's home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all....

Featuring performances by Haley Joel Osment (Entourage, The Sixth Sense), Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), Kate Mulgrew (Orange Is the New Black, Star Trek: Voyager), Joe Hill, Gabriel Rodriguez, and Stephen King (The Stand, 11-22-63), as well as a cast of more than 50 voice actors, this audio production preserves the heart-stopping impact of the graphic novel's astounding artwork through the use of richly imagined sound design and a powerful original score.

*Locke & Key contains explicit language and adult situations.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"The concepts in this production, based on a graphic novel, are perfectly executed by a full cast.... Kate Mulgrew leads the way with her perfect portrayal of an ancient grandmother with an evil streak." ( AudioFile)

Don't Waste your Credit

This is one of the worst of the worst. I don't even know if the story is any good because I could not get past the readings. I dislike the full cast, would have been better with one author. Maybe the book is better. I downloaded this twice and deleted it both times. Waste of credit on this one.

A Creepy and Suspenseful Read

I loved Locke & Key! Definitely an addicting and binge worthy audio experience. Fantastic performances and creative horror/fantasy story. Also I loved the musical interludes/ sound effects which made the story come to life. #Audible1

Why is this so popular?

Thought I would give this book a try since Netflix just picked it up but I am two hours into it and if only you could see the expression on my face. Best way to describe it is confusion....why is this so popular? It is difficult enough getting past the terrible Full Cast assembly but someone could not take the time to adjust volume levels correctly as I am constantly lowering and raising the volume. The Full Cast narration actually sounds exactly like a bad reenactment of a crime scene on one of those cheesy "based on a true story" detective/police crime shows.

I seriously doubt I'll make it through this book, I am very close to giving up and doesn't look like you can get refunds in Canada like you can with a US account. Not only is the voice acting annoying but this is a very disturbing book and here I thought it was going to be a young adult novel. It is quite unsettling to hear a child talk about how great it would be to be dead (what a morbid thought to put into someones mind).

Too inconsequentially heavy

It seemed to be a series of unfortunate events for the heck of it. At one point it just straight up clicked in my brain that I was not enjoying the listen - I was listening with the expectation of eventual satisfaction.

Look, I'm all for dark themes, but this series is mostly problem after problem with unsatisfactory resolutions given that part of the cause of the original problem is the incompetence/ignorance of the characters and thus their sudden victories seem entirely contrived. Okay, maybe I can't handle the only smart and/or detailed main character being the villain and the kid. Either way, I was not enjoying a lot of it neither intellectually nor emotionally.

The setting, mystery and background of the story are quite wonderful. There are parts that are quite the masterpiece. I just didn't like the in between bits. I wish they fleshed the good parts out more.

Joe Hill has worked on the Dark Tome podcast before, and I enjoyed their story in it much more wholly than Locke and Key. That podcast sent me here, in fact.

The performance is exceptional.

I WANT MY MONEY BACK!

This book was just a comic book that drags on and on and on. It is very difficult to follow because of all the different readers, some of which put me to sleep as soon as they started reading.

don't waste your time/money

everything about this book/audiobook was horrible. story was just an edge feast trying to make each new situation worse than the last. I'd say nearly 10% of this audiobook is crying or screaming. Another 10% being music randomly played for 20 seconds to over a min straight transitioning between scenes. At times there will be a struggle situation and it isn't clear what happened until later when you find out one of the characters is still alive. just overall a horrible story and horrible production . It's like listening to a movie playing in the next room over.

just not for me

Nothing against the story, the author or any of the performers. dramatizations are just not for me, thougb i didnt know it until i tried this title. found it very hard to follow and even harder to stay interested. Wound up not finishing.

again, just not for me. if you like these types of productions I'm sure you will find this enjoyable. the 1 star review is just my own personal reaction.

sorry Joe Hill. I'll read the graphic novel instead :-)

Very Disappointed

Mr. Hills previous book, "NOS4A2" was so good and I wrongly expected a good book. For me it was predictable, lacked imagination and I would have to say adolescent. The problem is I wouldn't allow my adolescent child or grandchild to read it because of the language, story line and violence. I do not recommend this book.

Don't waste your time and money

Too long, rambling, juvenile. Like a Nancy Drew with evil spirits . Way too many characters and a lot with no purpose

gave up after chapter 3

This was terrible. We could barely understand what was going on in the story. I have listened to and loved the old radio dramas and thought this would be similar but it certainly wasn't. The characters were hard to understand when they were speaking. I got the gist of what was happening from the narrator but it just wasn't worth it to continue listening.

Awful

This is the stupidest audiobook I've attempted to listen to. It was an endurance test of belief that it surely would get better. It didn't. It got worse.

It's a mess

Ihave a feeling I'd really like the graphic novel. But the audiobook is a mess. There's very little direction or narration of who is saying what. So it's just kind of a guess sometimes as to who is speaking and what is happening. There's lots of sound effects but I often couldn't tell by the sound effect what was happening. At one point a character changes gender and then I was completely lost as to who it was that was speaking. Overall I found the audiobook to be so confusing that I finally stopped listening. Maybe if I listened to it as I read along with the graphic novel I'd enjoy it more.

Confusing

This is a terrible story that is made worse by a poor performance. I cannot recommend this book.
