Monster in the closet!

Jason can't sleep. Every night he wakes screaming because the monster in his closet wants to eat him. Jason's dad makes horror movies and Jason tells him it's the monster from his movie. Tired of always waking up to his screams, his dad decides to take Jason to the movie set to see that it's not real. But sometimes it's wise to listen to your child because they could right!!

This was a super short story but was well written enough that it felt fleshed out. I didn't feel like I was missing anything, which is often the case with short stories. If at any stage you ever felt like there was a monster in your closet, then you might just enjoy this ;)

Rick Gregory read this really well. His tones and cadences were great and really made the story pop. He is definitely progressing as a narrator.

I was given this free audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Beautifully written

Jason is scared of the monster in his closet, a monster that looks like the beast in his father’s movies. But what if monsters were real?

I loved loved this short story. It’s beautifully written and the child's point of view is very well done. I could almost see this story translated to the big screen and made into a good movie. The fear, the characters, and the plot felt like the classics. A must read for fans and not fans of the genre.

The book is also very well narrated. Rick Gregory delivered a very clear narration, with different voices and subtle sound effects.

A hidden gem that I recommend to everyone.

Monsters among us

I loved this short story. Makes you want to believe the kids when they say there is a monster in the closet or under the bed. When costumes come alive. Great story.
