Publisher's Summary

A scary story of spiritual reincarnation and transference by Robert Smythe Hichens that grabs the listener from the start and never lets go. The first person narrator writes down his story as if to desperately try to convince both the listener and himself that he is not going crazy. This plays out very much in the style of psychological horror master Edgar Alan Poe: a sinister atmosphere, a character in distress, scary and inexplicable things happening...

The narrator as a troubled and slightly sadistic young man (he harms animals) is forced to live with his grandmother. Resenting the situation, he takes it out on her intensely blue-eyed cat. Soon both grandmother and cat die. Seventeen years later our narrator meets a beautiful, young, intensely blue-eyed woman that becomes his wife; initially all is well; but when they move into the grandmother's house, the young bride starts to look and behave more and more like grandma's cat - seeking revenge.

Good Story

I was looking for a shorter psychological type of horror-ish story for a cheap price, and that's exactly what I got. It was a pretty good story and I enjoyed it, but the narrator could use some more practice. I also think this story would have been better narrated by someone with a charming British accent, as it sounds that the characters speak in that manner. I sped it up to 1.25 and it helped the pace of the narrator quite a bit.

Overall, I don't mind that I spent $5 on it, but I'm happy I didn't use a credit for it also. It was slightly repetitive and at least for me predictable at one point, but I was still amused by it. It's worth a go if you're looking for something quick.
