    "The digital conversion needs to be redone"

    There are some good stories in this collection, but the Audible version needs to be redone. There are some sentences that get repeated, and one of the stories is cut off before it's finished.

    What would have made The Collection better?

    As with most Bentley Littlebooks, the boring writing fills every story. He tries to compensate the banality of the storeis with shcoking content that tries, and fails, to make up for the poor story lines. His story lines are an assult to anyone expecting a good read.


    What could Bentley Little have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    He could try developing a story with good character development and plots that are not dveloped for their shock value.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was quite good, although I feel sorry for Mitch for having to read the content.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Collection?

    The child molestation equates to child porn.

    "I really wanted this to rock"

    I really wanted this audiobook to rock. Bentley Little is my favorite horror writer and his full novels are some of my favorite books. This collection of short stories however, I wasn't pleased with. The stories themselves were fine enough but the narration was awful. Choppy and oddly paused with a sense that everything had been chopped off at the end of each chapter/story. Just really got on my nerves and completely kept me out of the mood of the book. Disappointing.

    Story
    "Terrible."

    I've read Stephen King is the literary equivalent of a Big Mac and fries. I don't agree, but if so, this is the puddle of p*ss under the urinal. Off-putting, and completely forgettable. Only 5 hours, for 5 dollars, and I'm still kinda pissed. A sexual deviant calling himself a professional writer. Volume 2??? really??? haha.
