    **I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.**

    The intro suggests reading at night, alone, in the dark. I thought I had the perfect setting: my porch, under the moonlight, just before the storm. While it was a good setting, it wasn’t the perfect one. My suggestion: camping.

    Having just spend a few nights in the middle of nowhere with my family, I kept thinking about them while listening. The perfect campfire, my love, my three teenage kids (one with his girlfriend), owls hooting, coyotes howling across the lake, and every single person begging for scary stories. That would have been the perfect time to break out the speakers and listen to the creepy low tones of Mr. Bennett’s voice.

    The stories combined with the perfect narrator for these kinds of stories are not quite scary enough while you’re sitting close enough to the comforts of home. But listen to them while you’re in the middle of nowhere without your own walls to keep out the creepers (maybe driving down a long highway at night where all you can see is what your headlights illuminate) and you might get just the right amount of tingle dripping down your spine.

    Now, I can’t wait to go camping again with my family and see what they think about these stories.

    I agree with some reviewers that the spooky factor could be dialed up a bit for most of us. But the writing is solid and Mr. Bennett is a fantastic choice for the narration.

    "Four fun short horror stories"

    My rating: 3.5 stars
    Audiobook narrator J. Scott Bennett rating: 4.5 stars

    This was a fun collection of four short horror stories with varying levels of disturbing-ness. I really like the preface in which the author gives some advice on how to best handle these stories and the side effects in which you may encounter. There were a few spots of comic relief like that.

    Of the four stories, I think I found the third one the most interesting and fun to listen to. The Montana setting is well described and I like the possibilities of that particular story-line developing into a larger novel.

    The narrator did a great job using a story-telling-like voice and he changed his voice for different characters in the books (though, the majority of this book was told from the viewpoint of the narrator). I am very curious to listen to the next one in the series.

    Thanks, Scott, for the free copy of this book!

    Unsure, since I've never read the print version.


    What other book might you compare Slivers in the Dark: A Journey of Horror into Night's Scariest Places to and why?

    None.


    What does J. Scott Bennett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A unique voice to the narrative and characters.


    Any additional comments?

    A really unique short story collection.
