Just Meh

I bought this book because I enjoyed Volume 2, but this one didn't live up to my expectations. I found my mind wandering frequently during about half of the stories, and I did not enjoy Mr. Packard's narration (sorry).

Really wanted to like this but it was just ok

The cover art is great. The description is great. The stories are not. I found them to be just fair to average. Some were on the gross side and others I didn't think of as horror at all. I think I'll pass on the next books in the series. I'd hoped for really good horror stories and I'm disappointed.

May be for YA

Pretty much no fear here. Might be for YA??? But not for me not scary and not narrated well.

1st in a series... That I'll not read.

Though we had a seriously good collection of writers and narrators on this anthology I found the stories themselves to be lacking. Rather than there being a twist in the tail, or a moment that hung on the reader as they left the story, I moved from story to story instantly forgetting what I had just read.
