This is good

This is one of the better books I've listened to lately. It contains some pretty scary stories, but not cruel or gruesome. So if you're into a lot of blood, this is not it. If you're into ghosts, monsters, and mysteries, this is a good one. No doubt. That being said, I really enjoyed it.

Wow

Good stories. The cover looks scarier than a lot of the short stories in there. I thoroughly enjoyed it, though.

Nothing wrong with this

There is literally nothing wrong with this book, in my opinion. I enjoyed the stories, the mystery, the murder and the crime. It was full of zombies and ghosts, and that was good enough for me.

Written for children or by a child?

Nothing scary about these stories and the writing seems geared toward children more than adults. Some of it was so painful to listen to that I had to stop listening for long periods on occasion before trying to finish the stories. The way the characters speak made me think they were all little kids. Adults don't talk like that. Never would've purchased this for myself but might be fine for children under 13.

Terrible

The stories are terrible and the horrible naration makes it torturous. Bad grammar and boring.

Narration killed it for me

I felt like the narrator doesn't know how to pause during certain instances that would bring the situation to life or even add feeling to the characters. At first I thought I must have pressed something to speed up the narration but nope just felt like an audio speed read. Wish I could have listened to the whole thing to really rate the stories, but I just couldn't get past the first 10 minutes of narration.

Narrator ruined it

The narrator for this story absolutely ruined it for me. Their voice is monotone through out every single story, even when it is stated that a character cried out or yelled it is all still just a drab monotone reading. There are a lot of action scenes in the stories this book contains and I feel they really could have benefited from even some light inflection of tone. There’s no differentiation in tone between when a character is sad, scared, bored or even screaming! I will say that the narrator isn’t the only thing that made this book less enjoyable. The writer often uses two words to describe something that totally contradict each other such as “she said silently” how can someone say something and it still be silent? She said softly or quietly would have gone better. There are a lot of instances in this book that made me do a double take because the word being used did not seem to fit the narration previous or did not fit contextually. The narrator also has a tendency to run chapter titles into the story. There are is no break or pause to tell you when the chapter title announcement ends and the story actually continues because they are ran together and the lack of inflection makes it all just sound the same. The stories are also not scary at all, they seem more intended for a preteen audience than anything. The stories are slightly interesting but not enough to cancel out the negative qualities this book has. I would recommend this book for preteens and anyone who is looking for a book to put them to sleep (the narration is so even And monotone it often lulls you to sleep).
