A penny-pincher carts off free soil from a graveyard in which to grow his own fruits and vegetables - but eventually the free dirt gets him in over his head.

My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books.
I love The Twilight Zone and will be getting the Volumes. Beaumont, Matheson and Serling, wrote the majority of the episodes. They were great writers. This story falls a little short. It is predictable and really not scary. The production and the narration are excellent and really enhance the experience. For the small amount of money it is, you might want to give it a try.
I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
This round spent so much time showing how the main character was a cheapskate that it forgot about how to wrap up the ending. Not the Best Of The Twilight Zone by any means.
As a longtime fan of The Twilight Zone TV series and radio dramas in general, I was really looking forward to this. The performances were good, but the story didn't hold up. First, it was a 20-minute story stretched to fill 40 minutes, making for a very slow script. Secondly, there was not a single sympathetic character, leaving me in a hurry to get out of this house and this neighborhood as fast as possible. Thirdly, the ending just didn't go anywhere. I was hoping for a "juicy" revelation about the dirt, but there was nothing there. I'm glad this was free and no longer than it was; otherwise I would be asking for a refund. It certainly did nothing to encourage me to buy additional segments of this series.
Love the Twilight Zone. In fact I have a large collection of the original TV series on tape (along with a collection of the original TV series Star Trek). What a trip it was to hear one made for radio. I'll be checking out more of this series. It's a fun... but creepy... trip back in time. They play the old original music when it starts... remember that creepy tune? Scared the crap out of my old companion bird, Petrie, when I played it. He jumped out of his open cage where he had just finished eating his breakfast and shrieked for Mama (me) to come get him. He was fine when I put him on my ahoulder, though he did climb up to the back of my chair to shriek a few more times before the story was done! We both thought it was creepy... but I enjoyed it more than Petrie!
Terrible voice by the lead. Seemed really insincere throughout. This was my first trial for Twilight Zone audio. Second guessing myself now! Loved the tv shows years back. This was a real disappointment.
"Loved this series "Back in the day...""
A couple of hiccups within the recording, but still listenable. Not one of the better stories, but was an enjoyable enough way to pass a little time.
"Not As Good As Origional"
Did not meet my expectations. Week depth of storyline.
Too much narrating, nothing to get your teeth into.
Best bit is the laugh at the end.
I drifted of half way through, not riveting.
Listening to this conversation, I become more excited to listen to this type of book.
Love the twilight zone better when do not have to read. now going to the next onr
"Low rate drama"
Nope, I found this quite dull
The twilight zone was always great for the occasional twist or surprise ending of some sort with a philosophical edge. This was not interesting with the ending and it made no sense to the character or to the rest of the story.
I cant say more without spoilers
"Nice one 😀"
Good twist at the end. Liked it very much. Nice one.
Thank you very much
