Good Reading!

Stories were generally good... a few disappointments here and there, but worth listening to. As usual, Dick Hill and Joyce Bean made listening a pleasure!

Great Collection

This was a great collection of short stories. I have actually listened to it a couple of times. I cannot wait until the next edition.

Good listen

I enjoyed Thriller. I generally enjoy story compilations, especially when the stories are exciting or unusual. Some of these stories were better than others, as one might expect, but all of them were narrated well, which is vitally important for an audiobook. I look forward to hearing the next Thriller books.

misrepresented waste f time

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Complete stories instead of "samples".

Any additional comments?

It is not the characters but the incomplete stories. Sounds like a commercial to by more books. Total waste of time.

  • Overall

never again

I had a very hard time understanding what the stories are about, even though I speak and read English every day. I gave up after 1 hour and I never buy something like this again.

Excellent Anthology

I am amazed at the negative reviews here. I thought this was an excellent anthology of thriller short stories. It gave me a glimpse of the works of authors I have not previously read, and many of the stories kept me on the edge of my seat.

Many good things

All of the "Thrillers" were good, some were captivating and some were almost breath stoping. A very nice collection allowing me to complete a "Listen" and get the kick before going on to another very different surprise.

Not worth the time

I was surprisingly disappointed by this book. There were a few stories by great writers but the narration was flat. I would have enjoyed reading these but they were not for listening.
