From twisted roots come poisoned fruit, and even the most wholesome families have their dark secrets.

Interesting variety of stories

Every collection of stories has some that work better then others while some have a better quality of writing this is certainly true for this collection.


For those who enjoy this genre there will be stories that will be enjoyed and even more so with a capable performance by the Narrator.

Stories keep you on the edge of your seat

Personally would have preferred a female or an androgynous narrator but the stories are riveting

From Twisted Roots

You had me at teddy bears and I never turned back. This was brilliant. I loved the collection and when the book was over I was both surprised that it crept up on me so fast, and a little sad that it was done. My son and I listen to audiobooks in the car when I drive him to school and after hearing the first story, he was hooked. I thought Paul Jenkins did a superb job narrating this book and really made the various characters come alive for me. I loved this book.

Riveting!

One thriller after another! Twists and turns hold your attention to the end!

Paul Jenkins has a great voice but I couldn't tell if his character was a boy or a girl. No voice change. Would of appreciated a longer pause between stories so I knew I was listening to a new story.

I don't ever answer the door anymore.

This collection of twenty four well written short stories explores different aspects of horror and mysteries, not just the 'bump in the night' scary story (although there are those here, too, but the really terrifying 'what happened next?' type, as in the sweet turning sinister, Smidge, and the social and psychological horror which descends on a family through no fault of their own, in Aftermath of a Murder. Some are heartwarming, like Fran and Jock, others more traditionally creepy, as in As Long as there were children. Not one could be described as boring, each quickly drawing in the reader with tentacles of expectations.
The narrator fully does justice to each and every one. A pleasantly normal voice, reading with moderate pace, clarity and good intonation, the warmth of Paul Jenkins' narration contrasts with the often strangeness or bewilderment or fear inherent in the text, and so enhances it. A good, steady performance.

My thanks to the rights holder of From Twisted Roots who, at my request, freely gifted me a complimentary copy, via Audiobook Boom. Usually, I prefer to read a book straight through with as few pauses as possible. With this one, however, I felt that several of the stories deserved time for reflection and so spread the reading over several days. A fine collection, and recommended.
