    "underwhelming"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The stories for me weren't particularly riveting, so I was only half interested with the narration.


    Has Beneath the Surface of Things turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not really, no. I will probably try another type of horror at some point.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Stephen J. Holowid?

    Not sure. I didn't have that much of a problem with the narrator.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Some stories were a little creepy, but other than that, indifferent.

    Story
    "cliched, predictable, derivative"
    What disappointed you about Beneath the Surface of Things?

    Stories are one-dimensional and not well developed. Premises heavily rely on supernatural non - explanations. I could not escape the thought that this must be the kind of manuscripts publishers must need to reject on a daily basis.


    Has Beneath the Surface of Things turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not necessarily


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narration felt like bad acting with the same whiny characters in every story. Strange pronunciations of several words were distracting.
