Would you listen to Scribbler Tales Volume Five again? Why?
Because these are original stories that are fascinating. Dark and alluring. Not your average mystery. Had me wanting more. Hope there will be a Volume Six? I have read all five and loved them all.
What did you like best about this story?
All the stories are spellbinding and unique. They are haunting while they feel realistic. Definitely worth the great escape.
Which character – as performed by Roberto Scarlato – was your favorite?
I was drawn into Felictiy's plight in Illusion, were we travel to another country, the Ancient City of Thebes where romance is a must! Though Felicity could not believe her good luck, she would have to re-think that. Could this man be too good to be true? I felt for her. .Roberto did a wonderful job. Easy to listen to and his narratives were well done. These tales read like a clever mystery you would see on the big screen.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I just listened to this in one sitting but I would just listening to one short story at a time if you have a busy schedule. I love listening to audio books in the car. It helps take the focus off the stress and traffic. A really good way to get into a book. This one is a real treat.
Any additional comments?
Mary Ann Bernal’s Scribbler Tales Volume Five is filled with smart, suspenseful, riveting, and edge of your seat stories. Each one is a gem upon itself. I enjoyed their twists that I didn’t see coming. Very unique pieces that took me outside myself and welcomed into extraordinary adventures.
