    "It was ok"

    It was ok but some stories were very disappointing which detracted from the overall experience. The narrators were awesome though and saved a couple of the stories.

    "Just no..."

    This was my last attempt at an anthology of horror stories. On to the next book in my wishlist I guess.

    "Chilling...!"
    What made the experience of listening to Twisted 50 the most enjoyable?

    I'm extremely impressed with the wide range and quality of both the narrators and the stories.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I thoroughly enjoyed the invention in these stories. Many are written by unknown authors, and it proves there's a lot of talent out there.


    Have you listened to any of full cast’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    n/a


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

    It made me itch with dread, which is exactly as it should have.


    Any additional comments?

    Genuine quality. Some stories I preferred to others, but overall the bar is very high. Looking forward to reading more work from this talented group.

    Story
    "Diverse horror stories, beautifully read..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely, because the collection has something for everyone, even if they're not a horror fan.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Twisted 50?

    'Gooseberry Pie' - when we realise what dear old Edna is up to. 'The Cyclist' - when we realise he's not. 'Shenanigans' - when the prey gets tech-savvy. (And the intro/outro music for each story - very effective.)


    What about full cast’s performance did you like?

    The range of different voices. Some performances are a bit 'off', but only a few. A very high standard overall.


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

    Made me think, made me shudder, made me want to listen on.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent value for money and one that I will listen to again.

    Story
    "Perfectly deranged in every way"
    What did you like most about Twisted 50?

    Seeing into the minds of 50 brilliant writers


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Simon in 'Beyond the Flesh' by Diana Read. He has OCD and counts everything from seconds to heartbeats. What makes him so scary is that he is dull, unadventurous, ordinary. Of course, he is anything but.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Enjoy? My heart raced during the scene when the circular saw cuts through the breastbone. I'm still trying to erase the image from my mind.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Twisted 50 ...beyond your worst imaginings


    Any additional comments?

    Each story is a good, bite-sized chunk but, as with Chinese food, you'll keep wanting to come back for more.
