    Where does Classic Tales of Horror for Halloween rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've only listened to a handful of Audiobooks over the years, and this one ranks at the top.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The narrator in the Tell-Tale Heart, because this has always been a favorite story, and his character is performed exactly as I've always imagined.


    What does Daniel H. Vimont bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Daniel Vimont's voice and delivery is one of eerie calm, which settles the listener into a relaxed and receptive state. However, beneath that calm is an almost sardonic joy in presenting the horrors of these classic tales, and Daniel uses this as a tool to transfix the listener. When just reading the book, one generally does not experience that kind of almost playful vocal performance in one's mind, especially in a horror story, which is very refreshing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. As a collection of short, atmospheric terror-tales, I found very entertaining and effective to listen to them over a period of days, during my evening commute from work as it was getting dark.
