Eat Dirt

I love The Twilight Zone and will be getting the Volumes. Beaumont, Matheson and Serling, wrote the majority of the episodes. They were great writers. This story falls a little short. It is predictable and really not scary. The production and the narration are excellent and really enhance the experience. For the small amount of money it is, you might want to give it a try.

Not a complete story

This round spent so much time showing how the main character was a cheapskate that it forgot about how to wrap up the ending. Not the Best Of The Twilight Zone by any means.

Weird Twist

Ok... Not great or surprising. Read in a very deadpan, monotone voice. Could have made this a great one !

Disappointing

As a longtime fan of The Twilight Zone TV series and radio dramas in general, I was really looking forward to this. The performances were good, but the story didn't hold up. First, it was a 20-minute story stretched to fill 40 minutes, making for a very slow script. Secondly, there was not a single sympathetic character, leaving me in a hurry to get out of this house and this neighborhood as fast as possible. Thirdly, the ending just didn't go anywhere. I was hoping for a "juicy" revelation about the dirt, but there was nothing there. I'm glad this was free and no longer than it was; otherwise I would be asking for a refund. It certainly did nothing to encourage me to buy additional segments of this series.

Awesome

This was a franchise story and had all the elements for a great storyline. This was a great storytelling told by an utter nonsense.

in the e spirit of old time Twilight Zone but...

This was in the right spirit of the Twilight Zone stories but it was missing that little something. That little moral or ethical lesson that came with every tale. This story had no real point to it and that was not in tbe tradition of the Twilight Zone.

  • Overall

Very, very WEIRD!

What scary fun this audio short story was to listen to!! This Twilight Zone episode is everything you have come to expect from the TV series, and the narration was incredible! If you have never tried an audio book before, these short, inexpensive stories are perfect to start with, I know you'll be hooked just like I am!

Stupid

The main actor was awful and ruined whatever the story would have been. But as it turns out the story was just terrible as well. Not twilight zone quality, dragged on and way too predictable

Loved this series "Back in the day..."

A couple of hiccups within the recording, but still listenable. Not one of the better stories, but was an enjoyable enough way to pass a little time.

Not As Good As Origional

Did not meet my expectations. Week depth of storyline.
Too much narrating, nothing to get your teeth into.

Best bit is the laugh at the end.

I drifted of half way through, not riveting.

Decent story

I like the main character and his cheapskate ways, lol.

The story itself is okay but, not one of my favourites as there isn’t much action or intensity to the drama till literally the last 2 minutes or so.

Not bad though and def. not the worst of these.

Uninteresting

Would you try another book written by Charles Beaumont or narrated by Eric Bogosian?

Having never heard a Twilight Zone episode, though well aware of its place in the annuls of history I wasn't sure of what to expect but given the price of this audiobook I thought I would give it a go. All I can take from this specific story is that Beaumont has no shock value but Bogosian was fine at playing his character.

Not a bad story, not up to usual Twilight Zone standard, guess this one wasn't meant for radio.
