An easy listen

This book is a series of short stories that can be listened to individually, they range from in length although none a very long.

I enjoyed all of the stories, they're well written with interesting characters and good plots.

The stories are definitely not child appropriate but are a great listen for adults.

The narration is well done, the character voices are all clear and distinct, the delivery is smooth and natural.

I received this book free from the narrator/publisher/author in exchange for an honest review.

Intriguing set of dark paranormal tales

This is an intriguing set of dark folklore-type tales. The stories are odd, frequently gruesome, and occasionally funny. I found the tale of a nicotine-addicted vampire darkly funny, especially when he is faced with the modern world of no-smoking zones that makes it hard to get his fix. There are some original tales, as well as some new takes on old tales, such as the nativity, the story of Job, and the Easter bunny. I thought the explanation of, and attitude toward, the advent of homosexual persons was refreshing. The final "Birthday" story was entertaining and surprisingly light-hearted. Overall, it was an entertaining and interesting listen.

The narration perfectly suited the stories and set just the right tone and ambience.
