    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Maybe a more mature reader


    If you’ve listened to books by E. L. James before, how does this one compare?

    First one Ive heard


    Did Becca Battoe do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Kinda dull, childlike voice, I though I was going to here an Oh Mah Gawd out of her...like gag me with a spoon...great book but needs a better voice for narration


    Could you see Fifty Shades Darker being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I think it would be great, have to think on the stars


    Any additional comments?

    good book, bland reading but would be a good book to read just not audio

    Robert E. Howard, renowned creator of Conan the Barbarian, was also a master at conjuring tales of hair-raising horror. In a career spanning only 12 years, Howard wrote more than 100 stories, with his most celebrated work appearing in Weird Tales, the preeminent pulp magazine of the era.

    Would you listen to The Horror Stories of Robert E. Howard again? Why?

    I may listen to again simply because the stories are a bit hard to follow. It isn't that it's not narrated well, the writing of Howard is different and written back in the early 1900's. I would listen again because I'm sure I missed something.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There are a number of horror stories here. I liked the way these stories flow and the way they are written. They are more spooky then scary. Brooding I guess would be a fair description,


    What about Robertson Dean’s performance did you like?

    Well narrated and his voice fit perfectly. A stellar performance!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The man who turned werewolf.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a book written by a man who ironically killed himself when he found out his mother would not come out of a coma. His mother passes the day after Howard killed himself. This is an author who left way too soon and could have gone on to create many more works,

    There's a madman loose at the Sunrise Motel and the suspect isn't always who you may suspect. A gripping fast paced ride into the underbelly of California's dark side.
