A really great selection of stories

Would you listen to Macabre Tales again? Why?

yes but in small increments a story or two at a time.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Since this is a story collection its not a relevant question.

Did Cathy Dobson do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I had trouble staying focused during Ms. Dobson's narration to be honest. She has a lovely voice with a rich timbre but for some reason I could not stay focused and found myself having to rewind frequently because I would zone out during the listening session.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

no

the speaker uses a strange accent that gets old

the stories need to be listened to in short times. listening to the back to back is hard because the reader is hard to listen to for long times.
