While the stories are good, many have appeared elsewhere in theme anthologies. If you like Carrie's work, and don't normally buy short story collections, this is a good value. I just think there should be better disclosure.
There's no "again." I skimmed it the first time, and don't intend to go back for the parts I skipped. That said, I do still like the series, and intend to continue with future books.
I'm going to get this from the library and read it myself. I can't tell whether it's the author or the narrator, but this really drags. Makes you wish there were an accelerator pedal for playback.
Maybe I'm just a little tired of werewolves.
This isn't a bad story, but I think it is most suitable for teenagers and early twenties.
This book had some very good sections.
I almost never skip ahead in an audiobook, but I did on this one, just to get it over and done.
Not all books make the transition from paper to audio well, and I suspect this is one of the others.
This is not great literature. A week after you listen to it, you probably won't remember much about it. It's the audio equivalent of a beach book.
But it's fun, and it's entertaining. It's lightweight enough to follow even while doing something. (I like Dickens and Chaucer, but I certainly can't drive and listen to them.) Sometimes, you just want froth, and this is excellent froth.
I loved the original book and the television miniseries based on it. I fully expected to love the audiobook. But somehow I've had this for over a year without managing to finish it.
This is really the sort of book to read yourself, either on paper or ebook. It's just too difficult to back up a few pages to refresh yourself on where you left off, and impossible to go back and look up the previous references to a person or event.
Some of the stories are quite good, and others not at all.
For this, as with other anthologies, I wish Audible provided a table of contents: which chapter is which story and author. That way I could skip stories by authors I know I dislike or go straight to one I want to hear over again.
I liked the stories in the collection, but was disappointed that I had read most of them in other collections.
I have a two hours' drive each way to and from work, and this book made the time speed by (unlike the traffic).
