I will and have recommended this audio book to friends. I enjoyed the variety of topics and subjects. The range of handling them ranged from serious to hilarious.
I'm not sure I can compare this book to others. It is a good selection of excellent short stories by these authors.
The variety of narrators gave good readings. I enjoy listening to good narrations. They help to get different insight into the stories. I enjoy readings that pad out my mental picture of any stories characters. Some narrators brought too strong an accent to their stories. For me that detracted from the reading.
I bought this book early on August 5, 2014. At the time of my writing this review I have listened to it twice. A few stories got listened to two or three times before going to the next one.
This is a good collection of short stories by these authors. I enjoyed the variety of narrators. Most of the narrators did an excellent job. At times a story had special effects added. The effects added to the performance without over running it. I suggest to anyone who enjoys these authors should consider this audiobook.
I enjoyed this audiobook. David DeVries voice fits as a slightly 'nerdy' librarian thrust into an adventure. I liked the concept of this audiobook. I do complain that it gets a little confusing at times. I hope that the next books in the series are as good or better then book 1.
I enjoyed this different way to present these stories. It added an enjoyable way to remember them. I especially enjoyed the interview with Vincent Price's daughter. Her comments and memories were interesting.
I enjoyed this audiobook. The characters are interesting. The diversity between them excellent. The story line interesting. All this makes the plot hold together well. Andy Secombe does a good job with his narration. The accents are a bit strong for those not used to hearing them. It takes a bit to get your ears trained to understand them. I recommend this book especially for those who like Victorian Era mysteries.
This is a fun story collection. A vampire bunny sounds unrealistic. But if these same facts (real or fiction) are implied in any situation, a similiar conclusion could be made. One question is never answered well. How did those veggies turn white and dry? Is bunny truly Bunnicula? The other stories are just as well done. I recommend this strongly for the young and young at heart.
This is my first book from this author. I didn't know what to expect. The story line sounded interesting. When the story started, I was surprised. The surprise was not good. I found myself saying..Oh No, I bought this? I made myself listen past the first chapter and I was hooked. The characters and plot carried itself well. There were surprises as well as predictability. This is a fun story. I enjoyed Roger Wayne doing the reading. The ending implied more to come. I hope there is.
I am not sure. The plot is a little too predictable. It just plods along, something happens then plods along. Portions of story could have been cut with out affecting plot.
I have not listened to his books before. The story line seemed intresting.
No. I will say Peter Brooks did an adequate job. He did seem to get carried away with some character interpretations. These came across as comical in many instances.
I did enjoy some of the facts spaced out in book other wise nothing was inspired.
I have not viewed this authors works before. I had no expectations about what I was going to hear. I expected a little explanation about Samurai life, something happens and changed to vampire. Then learning to live or not with the situation. Well this is like a teen short story. Girl tells father she wants to be a Samurai. She becomes one. Girl gets invited to go with cousins to Romania (really). One cousin is killed after the two girls get attacked by vampires. This is after they accept an invitation in a strange country from strangers. Our Samurai is found out later to have been saved by a mysterious stranger. The young Samurai is in reality a blood thirsty vampire. There is little action going on. This story is very simple. It is 100% predictable, there are no surprises. The narrator Ginny You does a fair job with reading this story. She makes it more interesting. My main complaint is her voice is a little too young for the story.
This is really a cute story. It teaches a few things to young people. It is nonsensical for the young & young at heart. I love the description of our heroine's adoptive parents. Her father who is also the president of the US. My only complaint is that the narrator reads a little too fast at times. Otherwise she does a good job.
I enjoyed this audiobook. It has a series theme to deal with.There were a few parts that got a little long. Pamela Garelick does a good job with her narration and characters. She should not have tried to sing the songs. Doing that totally detracted from my overall rating. Perhaps playing a soft background musical theme while reciting the songs or just reading them would have been better.
I read Around the World in Eighty Days a very long time ago. I meantime, I have seen movies adapted & anime based on the story. I found that listening to the story brought it back to true. It was fun rediscovering the original. Fredrick Davidson does a great job reading. A definite must listen.
