Publisher's Summary

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.

    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.

    "Not a complete story"

    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.

    "Eat Dirt"

    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.

    This was a franchise story and had all the elements for a great storyline. This was a great storytelling told by an utter nonsense.

    "What you expect from the Twilight Zone"

    The plot is predictable. The sound effects and characters remind me of the old radio dramas.

    Story
    "I love the twilight zone, but this one didn't fit."

    The seed of a good story was there... The narrators voice lacked the appropriate emotion, and I could not connect with him. The story it's self, well it had potential but was not well written. The pieces didn't connect and the flow suffered. Don't give up on the series, but you can take a pass on this one.

    "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.

    "Low rate drama"
    Would you try another book written by Charles Beaumont or narrated by Eric Bogosian?

    Nope, I found this quite dull


    What was most disappointing about Charles Beaumont’s story?

    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
