Hoped it was more complex than it is...

I was curious about how a "choose your own ending" would work in an audiobook.
In this case it's simple because each short story has only 2 options and the chapters are next to each other in sequence so we can simply listen to both endings one after the other.
One is usually shorter than the other giving away the one that should be the write choice...
The short stories are nice enough but I like stories to have more complex plots and choices.
It's a cool intro for children if any parent decide to pick scary stories to read their children. ;)

This is not the first book I've listen from this author and he does a good work with his very characteristic voice.

not really scary

The stories and format of choose the ending are likely better for a younger audience and better in written form because in audible you cannot choose. My daughter enjoyed these type of books during grade school years. Paul does a nice job narrating.

The Ghost Mystery Collection review

I enjoyed this. It was different, unique, and was reminded of the Choose Your Own Adventures, the way it was set up, not a bad thing.

What a great ending!

This was a good book I loved it so I guess it was great. I also love the alternative endings all of them. I let my 13-year-old daughter listen and she acted annoyed but once she started listening she kept listening. The next week could I buy her more books like this. LOL! I thought she was just trying to appease me, but then this morning she asked me again. I hope I can find more. The narrator poly Batson I thought did a great job you’re such a nice voice. So all in all it was a really great book.

Not Bad

This is a collection of two ghost stories in which you can decide which ending will happen. I love decide your own ending stories or endless quest stories. However, depending on which program you use to listen to this book, it's not exactly the best type of story to make audible. The stories themselves are cute short ghost stories. Well written and more for young adults and teens than for adults but I found myself enjoying them as well. The narration was off to me. Where Dr Ibbetson is an excellent author, his narrating skills need work. I felt his voice was a bit too high pitched and upbeat for this type of audio. I think it would've been better had he hired someone to narrate for him instead of doing it himself. That's not to say it's bad but could've been so much better.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Tough to follow decisions

This is a story not well suited for an audiobook.. Once a decision is made, the reader must go to a different chapter. Depending on the platform on which this is heard, that may not be easy.

Readers, your adventure is over.

A clever concept, not original but not one that I have seen before in an Audiobook, where the reader decides, at certain points in the stkory, what decision to make - like going to the left or to the right at a street intersection. Dependent on the answer the reader is then directed to simply read on or, dalternatively, to jump forward to a different chapter to continue the book. This works easily as each section is on a different chapter number.

Two stories, The Ghost of Madeleine McCoy, and The Funeral Home. Sadly, both are so short that there is very little time for plot or character development, instead remaining only to show how even minor life decisions can lead to different results.

My thanks to the rights holder of the somewhat misnamed Ghost Mystery Collection for freely gifting me with a copy of the audio book. Very short but fun for o!der children..
