From the master himself, Ray Bradbury. There is a wind knocking at Alan's door. Alan knows what the wind truly is. And the wind... needs to be fed...
If you could sum up Horrorscopes: The Wind in three words, what would they be?
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Absolutely. The beauty of stories like The Wind is the "could you imagine if this really happened?" that is on endless loop in one's mind as the performance goes on. The cast is sterling. I felt like I'd stumbled across real people actually experiencing this situation and I was powerless to do anything to help. That didn't keep me from talking to the characters and telling them why they were crazy to do such a thing or to just hurry up and do something already!!
Which scene was your favorite?
Hard to say. There are several moments that stayed with me, but not actual scenes. I did have a favorite character though, and I forget his name, but it was the guy making the phone call. Incredible performance.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The Wind: If this movie turns out anything like the audiocomic, you're going to be very happy.
Any additional comments?
The production value was aces. I listened to this in my car but felt instantly transported to the 40s in front of an old radio insanely happy that Little Orphan Annie was over so my sister could shut up while I got my scary story. This was my first time listening to a performance of this type in an audiobook and I was nowhere near disappointed. The production quality was so visceral; the use of a rotary telephone, the music choice to set the mood of couples gathering at home. I said to a friend that if I didn't know better I'd think I were at a Key Party in the 70s with this group! Bravo to The Audiocomics Company. Fantastic job. Looking forward to listening to all of their titles!!
