Slush is fun!

Slush, is a small volume of horror stories. Overall I found ‘Slush’ to be an enjoyable collection of short stories, and i felt like Glenn Rolfe is a name we will hear more from. 3 hrs and 27 mins goes fast away. In those almost 3 and half hours we get twelve stories, so there is no room for rest. Glenn Rolfe shows his versatility as a horror author, and that is one of the reasons i want to hear more from him! These stories made me feel all sorts of things, and not all of them hit me the right way, but still i wanted to hear more!

Joe Hempel is a good narrator! I enjoyed listening to his voice, and it change just the perfect way to the stories! Joe Hempel is just so fun to listen to, and his voice work is exelent, nothing negative about it, and i am a fan of him now. He is my top 10 narrators i have heard here, and that is saying something!

A collection

Any additional comments?

A nice collection of good stories here. Enough to satisfy anyone's taste . Some brought back memories, while others I didn't care about, By the way I'd recommend this collection of stories and this author and the narrator. A very good combo.

A great collection from a future star

Any additional comments?

This is Glenn Rolfe's slush pile, a collection of twelve dark and seductive dances. But don't mistake this for a collection of held over, dismissed, not ready for prime time cast aways. You will be bludgeoned by twelve heavy hitters. Twelve pins jammed into the hide of a voodoo doll.

Loss of youth and erosion of innocence are the common threads being spun throughout the spindle of these tales. With cursed items, cursed people, first loves, dark appetites, revenge, the unknown and the beyond being the blood that flows from the pinprick. Joe Hempel chaperons you through Glen's dark landscapes by candlelight, but tread lightly. The trail isn't always smooth and never is it straight, and Mr. Rolfe isn't guaranteed to match your pace. Just ask Parker Stephens.."

They will all make you cringe

Some will make you cringe in a good scary or gross way and only a couple in poor taste. The majority were good creepy and scary. A few sexual scenarios make it not ok for the young readers. I look forward to more by this author. This audiobook was provided by the author narrator or publisher for free via audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review

Good, but felt like the stories left me hanging.

Would you try another book from Glenn Rolfe and/or Joe Hempel?

Sure I would.

Who was your favorite character and why?

They were different stories so this question is really hard to answer.

Which scene was your favorite?

Probably the boy that found the coin.

Could you see Slush being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No, unfortunately I can't.

Any additional comments?

While the stories themselves were good, I felt as if the endings were lacking something. I guess I was kind of hoping for an ending like "The Twilight Zone" would have had. I believe that even Stephen King would have had a twist at the end of some sort? Regardless, they were still interesting.

Fantastic collection of short stories

This collection of short stories was simply fantastic. I love short stories as much as I love novels. This author has definitely captured my attention and I will be looking up more of his work. Also, the narration was perfect.

A Fun Quick Listen

Any additional comments?

A great listen and well written story that kept me hooked. The narrator was excellent and really brought the story to life. I don’t usually listen to books in this category, but will be looking for more from this author in the future.

Took me by surprise, not for the faint of heart

Where does Slush rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I enjoy Sci/Fi, fiction and horror, this is a wonderful book and would land into my favorites pile for short stories.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There were several great characters because this is a book of several short stories, and I didn't really have just one favorite... I enjoyed all the boys in the "Skull of Snakes" short because it brought me back to my youthful, bike riding days.

Which character – as performed by Joe Hempel – was your favorite?

Jackie boy

Who was the most memorable character of Slush and why?

Jackie boy, just listen to the story and you'll know why he's hard to forget

Any additional comments?

At first I thought this book wasn't going to be scary enough, party because of the short description and the narrators more refined voice (that's a good thing though). I really enjoyed the narration, I almost felt like "oh this guy sounds too smooth to be telling a really scary story" Then I was pleasantly surprised to discover I was wrong :). I like my horror with some dark, gritty descriptions, but not over the top. This book nailed it, as well as having a great narrator.

A well done collection of horror shorts!

Any additional comments?

I listened to this one on audio and painted my entire bedroom while listening. While painting is not my bag, at least I was thoroughly entertained. At just a hair under 3 and a half hours it was timed perfectly too. The narrator did a great job and the voice fit perfectly with the characters while not over or underacting the heavier parts.

All 12 of the tales in here were written very well and the collection was evenly paced with short to super short stories that flowed together nicely. The standouts for me here were: Jackie Boy, Halloween Worm and The Ballad of the Best Selling Author.

Overall, a very enjoyable read (listen) with some very solid shorts and some genuine “eww” moments. I look forward to reading and/or listening to more from Mr. Rolfe.

A Good Collection

What does Joe Hempel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Great Narration although not so sure about the female voices!

Any additional comments?

Firstly, I'm not a huge fan of horror but these short stories sounded too good to pass up.

I wasn't disappointed, this is a great collection of short stories and are somewhat thought provoking.
Feel like some of the stories were a little rushed and could have been developed more.
Some pretty twisted and detailed stories! , Jackie Boy.... xD.
