    Great Horror Stories is a vintage collection of some of the finest ghost tales, horror stories, and supernatural legends ever written, by the best writers the genre has to offer.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator - over emphasised almost every sentence. Made the listening experience ghastlier than the stories.


    What didn’t you like about Cathy Dobson’s performance?

    Everything. She was atrocious to listen to. If I had tried this as my first ever audio book experience it would have made me leery of trying another one.
    Her over - emphasis was like chalk on a blackboard and really made it hard to enjoy the content. I will have to look for the actual book and read it myself as I could not bear a re-run via the ears.


    Was Great Horror Stories worth the listening time?

    Not with the assault on the ears. If it was possible to get the same audio book with a decent narrator I would be asking Audible for a swap.


    Any additional comments?

    I think I should be able to get a refund on this - I took to letting it run for 10 minutes while I fell asleep and have not heard one whole story of the collection - I have no desire to repeat the experience.

    At times stern, at other times patient, at times perceptive, at other times in sad denial, Olive Kitteridge, a retired schoolteacher, deplores the changes in her little town and in the world at large, but she doesn't always recognize the changes in those around her.

    Story

    Unfortunately I could have abandoned this book at any point, even mid- chapter, without the slightest curiosity about what I might have missed. Apart from the wildly rambling narrative there were a few instances of changing viewpoint within a scene in one of the early chapters. which is a fundamental no no. Very disappointing.

    In 2013, Johnny B. Truant and Sean Platt published 1.5 million words and made their full-time livings as indie authors. In Write. Publish. Repeat., they tell you how exactly how they did it: how they created over 15 independent franchises across 50+ published works, how they turned their art into a logical, sustainable business, and how any independent author can do the same to build a sustainable, profitable career with their writing.

    excellent. upbeat and encouraging. I could have listened for hours longer but as the narrator said, this would prevent me from sitting down to write. I will listen again periodically to take more of it in at the appropriate times in my writing.

    Even the most unique and interesting characters will not engage readers if their journey - the plot - fails. In this audiobook, best-selling author William Bernhardt reveals the secrets that will keep readers riveted to the page. He explains the importance of matching character to plot and the key distinction between surprise and coincidence. Bernhardt discusses how to enrich your story by layering three levels of conflict and, in the final chapter, analyzes the primary plot structures that delight readers.

    On the face of it, Emma and Nina have very little in common. Isolated and exhausted by early motherhood, Emma finds her confidence is fading fast. Nina - sophisticated, generous, effortlessly in control - seems to have all the answers. It's easy to see why Emma is drawn to Nina. But what does Nina see in her?

    I was sadly disappointed that the author did not seem to have a sufficiently formed motive for the antagonists actions .otherwise it was a compelling read..
