this book is STUPID! there are no ghost stories and is completely misleading. sorry I wasted my money!!
Having listened to
I like Hill's writing style, and though it comes across in these stories, the narration makes them sound laughable.
I would absolutely not listen to another performance by this narrator.
I don't believe this question applies as these are short stories.
I just couldn't get into the stories--one of the few I quit listening to before I finished. Maybe I wasn't in the right mood for them.
this book was so much fun. Can't take some of the stories too seriously but others are heartwarming and clever. My favorite line in the whole book is "He ran out of sky."
Like father, like son. This collection of short stories is sick, twisted, funny and sometimes even sad all tied up in a wonderfully entertaining audiobook!
I wish Joe Hill the best and will be waiting for his next book!
I am several hours into it and I don't think I will be able to stand much more. I loved Heart Shaped Box and had great expectations for this one, but after the "inflatable friend" story, I simply cannot justify any more of my time to this rambling mess. Wish I had passed on this one…
I believe a reviewer should finish a book before submitting a review. What do you think?
I expected more from Joe Hill. This is an earlier collection so I'll have to give him a pass. A few of the stories were engaging but the non-endings became trite and overused. Oh well.
Less vulgar language and consistance in facts.
David did a very good job at narrating this book.
Ghost Wood was a wonderful short ghost story.
2oth Century Ghosts by Joe Hill, I bought this book because I received a free glimpse at the story Dead Wood. I have to say I am disappointed, I thought there would be more stories like Dead Wood but instead I got gruesome, psychotic, horror. Button Boy gave me nightmares and was very poorly written as the facts of the story are changed at the end. Bug Boy was a horrible example to cheap backwoods sci-fi with horrible vulgar language in every sentence. I will finish the whole book just to give Mr. Hill a chance to redeem him self.
