📙 Hemlock Grove: or, The Wise Wolf by Brian McGreevy, narrator Sean Runnette


3.9


A charismatic young writer reinvents the gothic novel, bringing a fresh energy to our darkest myths and deepest horrors in an expectation-defying tale of adolescent deception, ravenous violence, and rumors of werewolves. The body of a young girl is found mangled and murdered in the woods of Hemlock Grove, Pennsylvania, in the shadow of the abandoned Godfrey Steel Mill. A manhunt ensues - though the authorities aren’t sure if it's a man they should be looking for. Some suspect an escapee from the White Tower, a foreboding biotech facility owned by the Godfrey family, where some suspect that biological experiments of the most unethical kind take place. Others turn to Peter Rumancek, a Gypsy trailer-trash kid who has told impressionable high-school classmates that he’s a werewolf. Or perhaps it’s Roman, the son of the late JR Godfrey, who rules the adolescent social scene with the casual arrogance of a cold-blooded aristocrat, his superior status unquestioned - despite his decidedly freakish sister, Shelley, whose monstrous medical conditions belie a sweet intelligence, and his otherworldly, sexy control-freak of a mother, Olivia. As the crime goes unsolved and the police seem more and more willing to believe any outlandish rumor, Peter and Roman decide the only way to save their own skins is to find the killer themselves. Along the way they uncover local secrets and designs that are much bigger than some small-town murder. Hemlock Grove is an exhilarating reinvention of the gothic novel, inspired by the iconic characters of our greatest myths and nightmares. At once a riveting mystery and a fascinating revelation of the grotesque and darkness within, Hemlock Grove has the architecture and energy to become a classic in its own right - and Brian McGreevy, the talent and ambition to enthrall us for years to come. Brian McGreevy grew up near Pittsburgh and received his MFA from the Michener Center for Writers at the University of Texas. Now a screenwriter who has had two screenplays featured on the best of the year Black List, he is working on an adaptation of Dracula for Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company. He lives in Los Angeles. ©2012 Brian McGreevy (P)2012 Blackstone Audio, Inc.

"Great listen."

I especially liked the narrator and have purchased other titles he has read. The story was good and entertaining. It goes along almost verbatim with the Netflix series of the same name. This title did not disappoint.

"Better than the Netflix Series"

Would you consider the audio edition of Hemlock Grove to be better than the print version?

"Just not what I thought it was going to be"

I got this audiobook cause I want to listen to story before I watched Hemlock Grove on Netflex. The narrator is really good but the story was so- so to me. Some parts were good and some part seem like they were going on and on to me. I didn't like how it took to get to the end. I might not watch Hemlock Grove on Netflex now. :(
