I'll definitely listen to this collection again.

Quick and dirty short stories that definitely fill you with a sense of horror. Decent narration, though not the best I've heard. Overall, a great addition to my short horror stories library.

Needed a different narrator

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. The narrator ruined it for me.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Again...another narrator. She is like listening to a machine. She did not do the stories any justice. The stories were good but the narrator made it just sooo boring that I had a hard time listening.

Good Stories - Really bad narration

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

No, I couldn't listen to this book in one sitting. I hate writing a bad review, but the narrator was so bad. She was monotone and stiff, and honestly, I thought it was a machine reading the book. It was really hard to listen to.

Any additional comments?

The stories were good, but they would have been better with a better narrator.
