Modern Culture Scary Stories and Older Superstitions

It was very informative and entertaining to listen to, but definitely geared towards a more advanced Japanese learner.
The book starts with various superstitions/legends and breaks them down to understand the individual words. However it was difficult for me to determine what word went with what translation until another word was translated.
The stories were entertaining, the stories are read in Japanese and then translated and immediately followed by another story. I kind of wish the English translation was first or that after the English translation it was read again in Japanese to understand more of what was going on.

One last thing these scary stories aren’t about the original old tales/legends of tengus, shinigami, onis, and other ayakashi.
