Entertaining stories for both young and old

Though this collection of short stories was not what I was expecting, it was nevertheless an interesting read. The stories in this collection are basically ghost/scary stories. They are the kind of stories told around campfires, not super scary, but they may send a chill down your spine. I found many of them to be quite well-written and entertaining with an edge of the seat anticipation. My only complaint is I felt, as a whole, it ran a bit long. I had to take a number of breaks from it in the course of reading it. I listened to the audio version, with numerous narrators, which really brought the stories to life.

Good set of short stories

I loved the mix of story types, and settings. The stories were mostly good, but a few meh as in any mix of short stories. Some really worked well as short stories, but some really felt more like general ideas for something more in depth. Overall happy aith collection, and would recommend.

A mix of Twilight Zone/Black Mirror wonderfulness!

Every single one of these fantastic stories will make your day. Some of them are connected. Some of them live on their own incredibleness. All of them are what good stories are made of. The characters, the settings, the emotions, everything...hit. Everything was special. Everything left me wanting more! The variety of narrators just amped up the special.

Solid Collection

A collection of chilling stories, perfect for the Halloween season. Topics ranged from serial killers, to ghosts, to various other spooky topics. There were such a huge range of narrators that it’s hard to say what I liked and didn’t like about each. Overall, they were pleasant to listen to. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Perfect for this month, spooky and wonderful!

THIS BOOK IS AWESOME! For any age (although there's some violence, but a gotchcha for the right person in the first story especially), you will love it! The book is voiced by different narrators for each story, and they fit very well for each one. An utterly enjoyable listen and I will be back for a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th spin on this one! Note: I was given this audiobook for my honest review, and this is it. A+, I highly recommend!

Wonderful collection of short stories

I have to admit that I was initially drawn to this book by the cover and at first hadnt realised that it was a short story collection especially of the paranormal/spooky genre. It was completely different to what I expected but In a good way. Like every collection of this nature there were some tales that were better than others but each were unique and entertaining. I found that I couldn't just listen to the one in a sitting and listened to a few at a time. I was given this book by the author/narrator in return for an honest and unbiased review
