    "A really great selection of stories"
    Would you listen to Macabre Tales again? Why?

    yes but in small increments a story or two at a time.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Since this is a story collection its not a relevant question.


    Did Cathy Dobson do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I had trouble staying focused during Ms. Dobson's narration to be honest. She has a lovely voice with a rich timbre but for some reason I could not stay focused and found myself having to rewind frequently because I would zone out during the listening session.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no
