I had not heard of Richard Matheson, though I remember the lead story, "Nightmare..." The stories in the collection range from psychologically bizarre (examination of the effects of rage) to avant-garde sexuality for that time. Each story is read by one person, without a lot of characterization. Not as action-packed and extreme as today's fare, but solidly entertaining.
If you saw, "Christmas with the Kranks," you know the story. There is very little difference between the two. While the movie was funny and entertaining, using a lot of visual humor, the book was ponderous with bits of humor here and there. Nevertheless, an okay diversion for a walk around the block.
