Chilling tales.

Since these are short stories, it's hard to summarise them without spoiling something, so all I'll say is that this is 8 chilling and creepy tales. I've read a lot of Ron Ripley's books and always enjoyed them, and these are no different. Each is a little slice of creepy and scary and each is well written. Being short stories, there isn't much character development nor world building, but they are enjoyable little snippets into the authors mind. Good tales to tell around a camp fire!! :)

Jack Nolan did a good job with the narration, his voice is easy to listen to and is clear, but I found the production quality to be a bit echoey. It felt like he was talking in a big empty room.

*I received this as a gift, but voluntarily reviewed it. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.*

Listening to scary stories is even better than reading scary stories! Like stories around the camp fire. Terrific!

enjoyable stories

I enjoyed the stories, and the darker aspects were interesting. I always love ghost stories, and am really enjoying everything I have read or listened to from this author. I did not however like the narrator for this book.

Terrible

I already left a disappointed review of the stories themselves on Amazon. For the audio book I'll address the narrator's performance. Awful. Just awful. Since I had a!ready read the stories in eBook format, I felt no guilt in fast forwarding through this after 2 stories. Jack Nolan's performance is dry and hurried. He could be reading a school textbook for all the emotion he gives as he ta!ks about fingers breaking and eyes being gouged out. No drama in the reading, no suspense. Dry as overdone toast. And he hurried through his narration as if he wasn't laying attention to the story the words were unfolding. He frequently ran words together and spoke so quickly I couldn't catch what he was saying. This was the worst narration I've ever heard.

Good, short stories.

Would you listen to Ghost Stories again? Why?

Maybe, but not for awhile. I would want them to be somewhat fresh.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ghost Stories?

Each story had a sort of surprise twist ending. Finishings that made me grin.

What does Jack Nolan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings the scary effect to the story. His narration was very well done.

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

Just a Wow! at the end of the individual stories.

Any additional comments?

Very entertaning!

Short but Good

This may not be the best Ron Ripley book but totally enjoyed the short creepy stories and he did not disappoint with him trying to scare you. I especially like Ghost Hunters to be done as a novel. The Treasure Hunter and Bed and Breakfast were also memorable. Highly recommend these short stories to all horror fans; also recommend His Moving In and Berkley Street series. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by Scarestreet. THANK YOU!!
