I'm extremely impressed with the wide range and quality of both the narrators and the stories.
I thoroughly enjoyed the invention in these stories. Many are written by unknown authors, and it proves there's a lot of talent out there.
It made me itch with dread, which is exactly as it should have.
Genuine quality. Some stories I preferred to others, but overall the bar is very high. Looking forward to reading more work from this talented group.
"Diverse horror stories, beautifully read..."
Definitely, because the collection has something for everyone, even if they're not a horror fan.
'Gooseberry Pie' - when we realise what dear old Edna is up to. 'The Cyclist' - when we realise he's not. 'Shenanigans' - when the prey gets tech-savvy. (And the intro/outro music for each story - very effective.)
The range of different voices. Some performances are a bit 'off', but only a few. A very high standard overall.
Made me think, made me shudder, made me want to listen on.
Excellent value for money and one that I will listen to again.
"Perfectly deranged in every way"
Seeing into the minds of 50 brilliant writers
Simon in 'Beyond the Flesh' by Diana Read. He has OCD and counts everything from seconds to heartbeats. What makes him so scary is that he is dull, unadventurous, ordinary. Of course, he is anything but.
Enjoy? My heart raced during the scene when the circular saw cuts through the breastbone. I'm still trying to erase the image from my mind.
Twisted 50 ...beyond your worst imaginings
Each story is a good, bite-sized chunk but, as with Chinese food, you'll keep wanting to come back for more.
