    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I liked all of the short stories. IT Frankenstein was my favorite. I am still giggling about the "satellite not working with the TV" I thought all the narrators did a good job. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

    "Perfect listen for Halloween!"

    3 great stories by a great author. Gilboe and Bennett are two of my favorite narrators. They deliver an amazing rendition of the tale and the characters. I already have the vampire caving and swamp voodoo but was happy to get Frankenstein IT and the collection together made for great listening on Halloween. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    Story
    "Monsters have problems, too."

    I wasn't crazy about the first story. I felt for poor Adam, the ever patient IT monster, but it dragged on a bit long and I got bored with it before the end. The other two stories were much more interesting. Swamp Monster Voodoo was very amusing with a clever twist. Vampire Caving was a more serious story than the other two, but an interesting one. This vampire wants to know how his kind came to be and since he is immortal, he has a long time to search for the answers. This is not your average vampire tale. The narrators for all three were well chosen. There were little bits of music at the beginning of each story and while I don't usually like music or sound effects in audio books, it seemed to fit this group of stories well and I didn't mind it.

    For the fun/light side of Halloween, I highly recommend the Halloween Party Book Set! Three fun tales by James Livingood make for a lovely listen. Frankenstein IT Support was my favorite story and all three stories were narrated with style. This book was a wonderful change of pace!

    "Halloween Party Book Set"

    This is a really fun set of stories:"Frankenstein: IT Support" narrated with great details by Michael Gilboe,is just how Frankenstine would be as a phone tech! I found it very enjoyable.

    "Swamp Monster Voodoo",narrated by J Scott Bennett, with southern flair,is an educational story about things that will work and won't work on his kind and other boogey men.It also stresses that debts must be paid.A great read!

    "Vampire Caving",narrated brilliantly by Bryan Patrick Jones,Is a look at the Vampire Hierarchy and how each plays its part so things run smoothly.One Vampire is searching a cave where very old Vampire evidence has been found.He may just find more than he bargained on!

    Story
    "A good holiday collection for family fun."

    This audiobook contains three short stories, Frankenstein: IT Support, Swamp Monster Vodoo, and Vampire Caving.

    Frankenstein: IT Support – Adam, Frankenstein’s monster, has survived to the modern times and works in IT at McTech. Through out the day, Adam answers several IT calls and deals with socially awkward coworkers.The pacing of this story was pretty slow, mimicking how boring Adam’s job is. The jokes came in two flavors – those about Adam and his love of ingesting electricity, and those about IT work and the dumb questions consumers call in with. There were also a few puns thrown in. I found the humor very predictable and therefore, it fell flat for me. Perhaps this story would go over well with small kids.

    Swamp Monster Vodoo – The Swamp Monster was taken in by a vodoo master, who mentored him in the magic and in the cheat. They were partners of a sort, providing info from the other side to family members seeking lost treasure in the swamp. However, very soon into the story, the two must part ways. Swamp Monster, being large, green, and a little smelly, sets up a little cabin in the swamp. Pretty soon he is providing favors to the dead in exchange for buried treasure. Yet he doesn’t take into account that a certain ghost may be after something more. This was a pretty clever tale. I liked that it started off in on e place, and that gave me certain expectations, but ended in a completely different place. I quite enjoyed the journey between the two.

    Vampire Caving – Bernie and Richard are turned in to vampires the 1920s by some nameless, yet pretty, woman who took them home one night after drinks. Then the story skips ahead to modern times. Bernie is a Hot Head, exploring the world and trying not to get burned by the sun. Meanwhile, Richard became a Doomsdayer, one of those vampires that prefers to set up a fancy nest and never leave. The Hot Heads provide new tech and knowledge to the Doomsdayers and the Doomsdayers treat the Hot Heads like royalty. Bernie continues to seek out the origins of vampires. He’s put a lot into it – studying history and languages. Richard has dug up a possible lead and hands that off to Bernie. The clue is a cave and Bernie suits up and starts exploring. What Bernie finds in the cave is totally unexpected – but him or me! But I really liked what the story did with this mystery cave. In fact, I am going to say there is some pretty beautiful myth building that goes on in this tale. I was impressed.

    I received a copy of this audiobook at no cost from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    The Narration: Michael Gilboe did a good job being Adam, Frankenstein’s monster, and ponderously moving through the day. He came off as lovable lummox and I felt that was and exact match for the text. J. Scott Bennett had a great voice for the Swamp Monster, bringing a bayou twang to it. I especially liked his voice for Granma Rose. Brian Patrick Jones did a really good job with the story Vampire Cave. I liked his voices for what Bernie found in the cave. The intro and the little bit at the end after the completion of Vampire Caving were both in lower volume for some reason. That’s my only little quibble with the audio production. Each story came with it’s own little bits of music and I quite liked this little touch.

    "Great short stories for Halloween!"

    My rating: 4.5 stars (why can’t I leave half star ratings…)
    Audiobook narrators rating: 5 stars

    This is a great party pack of books in time for the Halloween season. They are all short and fun as well as lighthearted. I would highly recommend them for the month of October and beyond.

    I like how we get to see further into James Livingood’s imagination and I keep wondering what he will write on next!

    The narrators (all three) of these books were fantastic and really help the stories come to life. I look forward to more books from James and stories read by these narrators. You can read my individual reviews on each of these books in Goodreads.

    Thanks for the books, James!

    "Light wight monster stories"

    Three stories about monsters trying to adapt, to living among humans. Not scary, no action, no romance,trying to be funny. Frankenstein was boring after caller 2. The vampire history to complicated. The swamp monster was the best of the 3. Funny and different. The narrators where better than the story lines.

    "2 out of 3 ain't bad"
    Any additional comments?

    1st story is boooring, was difficult to get through. The 2nd and 3rd stories were really good though. The swamp monster story was funny and really well narrated. The vampire story should be a novel, really good all the way around. Frankenstein IT story was just like dealing with IT, boring and forgettable. As Meatloaf once said 2 out of 3 ain't bad. Overall a good listen.
