Audible Editor Reviews

These Cajun stories from the swampy backcountry of Louisiana are creepy and blood-chilling. J.J. Reneaux knows her craft well and takes her time developing these six stories of ghosts and werewolves. From "Half-Man" to "The Ghost of Jean Lafitte," the medley of yarns and legends runs the gamut from the unfamiliar to the well-known. Reneaux's Cajun dialect is quite understandable, and it's not difficult to grasp the stories after adjusting to Reneaux's rhythm and pace. The sound effects generally add to the flavor of this collection. The original slide guitar music by Mark Maxwell is good and used with flawless effect. Great for kids who like such scary stories, ages 8 and up.

    "Brilliant and Scary"

    The description says ages 8 to adult, but I'm glad I waited until my daughter was 11 before listening to these stories. Some are quite scary and leave lasting impressions. Wonderful stuff, though! She's a real treasure!

    "Best all around"

    These stories are well thought out and read very well. There's a hint of scare and a good dose of morality without the least bit of preachiness. These all seem like timeless stories that have been handed down for centuries.
