Conversations with the Dead is a themed trio of very short stories - yes, three very short stories - perhaps better described as anecdotal tales with a spooky twist.
In "Of Ghosts and Ghouls", Kelly is a very naughty girl, and her ill deeds have grave consequences. In "The Unwanted Birthday Gift", Mary discovers the unpalatable truth about her family. And in "Tomorrow Waits for No Man", Luke gets stuck in traffic with an unusual passenger.

Conversations With The Dead is a perfect book for Halloween. Three spooky stories with dire, spooky ending with a twist for each of characters who is an unbeliever of the supernatural. For anyone who wants a short story to entertain at a campsite and especially for Halloween, this is the book.
The narrator, Lauren Ezzo is the perfect narrator for this audiobook. She has narrated three short stories with wonderful voice for the characters and for the twist at the end of each story.
I was given this audiobook by the author and voluntary write a review for this book. I was not compensated or influenced in any way for writing this review.
All three stories are spooky and sometimes scary. Each of them have surprise endings, which makes you want to listen to the end. Well written, nice and short, easy to listen to
These are short, fun, ghost stories--just the sort of thing my friends and I used to try to scare each other with when we were teens. Dim the lights to set the mood, then settle in to enjoy a bit of spooky entertainment.
I thought the first story was the scariest, and the last story was the most surprising. The middle story, "The Unwanted Birthday Gift," was probably my favorite though. More bittersweet than scary, it's a nice change of pace between the other two stories.
The narrator does a fine job. Her pronunciation is clear, her pacing is appropriate, and I had no trouble distinguishing between the different characters.
