The classic story of reincarnation. I’m unsure what genre I would place this in. It’s not scary and, for me, goes on too long, though it’s a perfectly excellent telling of a series of logical events including a court room enactment. Though some may say farfetched and it likely wouldn’t happen today, I particularly like how those in authority, including the judge, all put their own careers above the possible mental or physical safety of a child. Something rings true about the media circus and ‘trial of the decade’ debacle to this day. ( )

My original Audrey Rose audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.

Audrey Rose is a serious and well written story about a small child who died in a fiery crash and has come back reincarnated as Ivy Templeton. Audrey father, Elliot Hoover has spent years learning about reincarnation and Hinduism and more to find peace and determine if a psychic’s words that Audrey is alive and well, living in New York is true.

Hoover becomes a weird stalker type trying to convince the Templeton’s that he needs to be in Ivy’s life as she is his Audrey Rose. As good parents, the Templeton’s try to stop Hoover but ultimately during the court case, psychiatrists are called in and there discover the truth – the horrifying truth.

As a parent whose son was born within minutes of the Space Shuttle exploding in 1986 (I was grateful he was born first!), I understand the fears that parents can experience. Frank De Felitta plays on those fears and many more. Detailed descriptions of the painful and terrifying death of Audrey and the melting ceremony at the boarding school with Ivy – I know my heart came near to stopping several times!

Although written in 1975, Felitta knows the fears of parents well and plays those fears and emotions to perfection. The narrator, Matt Godfrey performed the story well. His "Hoover" voice was adequately creepy and his "Mr. Templeton’s" voice was perfect as the father.

I enjoyed the book – Ok, enjoy is not quite the word; I was terrified, creeped out and sitting on pins and needles until the end – so, ... yes … I enjoyed the book! The fears of parents don't really change over time so although written in 1975 the fears of parents are very similar then and now. This is a timeless book!

There were no issues with the production or quality of this audiobook.

Audiobook was provided for review by the narrator. ( )

I don't know why people compare this book to "The Exorcist" so often, because they're really nothing alike.

When it comes to horror, I always prefer to read the book rather than watch the movie, since books have so many intangibles that movie adaptions really just can't bring to life. I've only seen bits and pieces of the movie, but I can fairly say that the book is immensely better.

Is the book good? Well, it's 1970s horror. So like most popular '70s horror there's a paranormal slant to it. That being said, this book is almost more paranormal melodrama than anything else. It isn't scary -- at least, not by any of my standards. It's nothing spectacular writing-wise either. BUT it's fairly unique in plot and in ending and I can definitely see why it'd be considered a memorable book. By all accounts it's fairly mediocre, but as long as you know what you'll be getting when you start, you should come away pretty satisfied.

I did. ( )

"Audrey Rose" is not only a great book, of a family torn apart, by what they don't even believe in, but it also presents a good representation of reincarnation.
When Hoover's own daughter died, he was heart broken, but then he heard from a respected psychic that his daughter was still alive. He made the decision to find her, but how would you feel and how much you would you believe, from a man who is certain you have his daughter, reincarnated in your own child? What happens when you start to believe it? ( )
