Reviews

Disarming.

-- "Wall Street Journal"

If you've ever been frustrated trying to put together furniture from IKEA, you'll get a laugh out of Hendrix's spoof mystery.

-- "New York Post"

Wildly fun and outrageously inventive.

-- "Shelf Awareness for Readers, starred review"

Retail stores that peddle lifestyle philosophies to customers and employees get a comic drubbing in this diverting horror lampoon.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

At a Cleveland-area Orsk home store, uptight store manager Basil convinces employees Amy and Ruth Ann to stay after closing one night to catch the vandal who is defacing company property. They run into two more employees who are also staking out the business after hours, but Matt and Trinity are hoping to find evidence of ghosts haunting the showroom. Both groups find more than they bargained for in this fun horror novel...Will deliver enough scares for horror fans...Enjoyable.

-- "Library Journal"

A very clever ghost story.

-- "Booklist"

Hendrix does a good job of toying with the classic haunted-house story...Tai Sammons narrates evenly, with Bronson Pinchot providing interstitial advertisements for increasingly sinister-sounding Orsk furniture...With no mood-setting music or intense scares, this audiobook is light on suspense and horror but surprisingly fun nonetheless. Fans of B horror movies will enjoy this parody and will be entertained by the strong story development.

-- "Library Journal (audio review)"

Two narrators deliver this story, which revolves around a Swedish furniture store. Tai Sammons gives distinctive voices to the employees of the Orsk store, and Pinchot enthusiastically reads the store's catalogue...Sammons' performance has a tough, acidic edge that perfectly reflects Amy's cynicism and resignation. Pinchot, meanwhile, sounds just like a commercial, with a tenor tone and perfectly convincing upbeat rhythm.
