Bumper Crop | [Joe R. Lansdale]

Bumper Crop

This collection of 26 stories contains some of Joe R Lansdale's favourite and most violent dark horror tales. 'God of the Razor' introduces the dark god behind serial killers. A martial arts fight to the death between a reluctant champion and a sadistic alpha male, is featured in 'Master of Misery'. Human sacrifice, to ensure prosperity or as a coming-of-age ritual, are themes of 'On a Dark October' and 'Duck Hunt'. In 'The Fat Man', young boys learn the hard way that some mysteries should not be investigated. Many of the tales are truly weird, such as 'Chompers', the story of the false teeth with an appetite.

    "Should have read this instead of listened"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, I'd recommend the book - the stories were fun. But no, I would not recommend the audio book.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Not really an ending - they were a collection of short stories.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I don't think the reader interpreted the stories well. The inflections were odd, the pacing and pauses were off, and he was really bad at doing different character voices. I did not enjoy this reader at all.


    Did Bumper Crop inspire you to do anything?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    This would have been better if the author's prefaces were not read. My ipod wouldn't let me skip ahead and it was EXTREMELY annoying to have to sit through the author's thoughts on each of his stories.

    "NARRATION RUINED THE WHOLE BOOK"

    I love Lansdale novels, but this narrater was the most annoying I've ever listened to on audible. He appears to use an over exaggerated southern wine and twang to his voice for some reason which gives each story a goofy feel. I've always thought it odd when reading other reviewers complain of how a narrater can ruin a book even if the story is good. Now I understand why. Would be 5 stars but narration was too annoying...oh,...I'm also from the south and I'm used to southern accents but this was feigned and annoying like chalk hissing on a chalkboard.
