Lacking good Narration

The stories in this book are fantastic. They had me at the edge of my seat by the build up, but the narrators approach threw the whole experience off for me. Kudos to the author for the magnificent work though!

Interesting short stories from a talented Author

Overall 3.75

This is a collection of short (horror and Intriguing) stories. Some of the stories were really interesting and creepy and left me wanting for more. I really wish that they were slightly longer (but then they wouldn't be short :-)). However there were a few that sounded too random and I am not able to fully comprehend them (yet) - may be another listen would help.

Narrator was good and expressive, however I felt that the pauses between the chapters could have been longer. Sometimes it was difficult to distinguish between stories.

Overall an interesting listen. I liked the author's (Crina's) writing style and would look forward to read/listen more of her work.

Great stories

I received a free review audio book and voluntarily left this review

These were great short stories, just in time for halloween. Overall, I did enjoy most.. Some, I sort of got lost in.. but others had shivers down the spine.

Great short reads.

Nightmarish

Many of the stories were dreamlike and nightmarish. Others were more concrete, but usually even more nightmarish.

A fun, creepy read

I would call this collection campfire stories for adults. They were short, creepy (and sometimes disturbing) pieces that got me in the Halloween spirit. Overall, I would give this collection 3.5 stars, but I always like to round up because shorting someone half a star hardly seems fair.

Weird and wonderful

Written in the first person this book is a group of strange creepy short stories which need you to listen so you are drawn in.
It was sometime hard to realise when one story ended and the new one had begun. This would’ve been better if headings for each story was more emphasised, with a large pause or something to illustrate that there was a new story beginning. The stories seem to run into each other.
I feel that the narrator voice suited the stories and add an eerie aspect.
I was given this book at my request and asked to leave an honest review.

whispers & other strange stories.

3.5

OK, this collection is kinda hard to rate. Some of the stories i really liked and some were so random, it was more like thoughts of a madman. I did like the writing so i would give this author another try.
Aaron Adams narrates this and i think he did a good job. There could be a longer pause between stories.

let yourself get drawn in

Sit back, relax, and get ready to picture every scene of this book. the writer has done a fantastic job with vivid imagery (sometimes too vivid! eww worms), and you can almost picture yourself in each scene.

The narrator's voice is calm, yet intriguing. a great way to bring life to these characters. he was well suited for the role.

However, there will be some people who are upset that the book was not rewritten in American terms (miles vs km etc). Having to try to do the mental math doesn't take much from the story, and by now we should all be learning the metric system anyway. :) I also discovered that I really dislike the word yurt. That's not the author's fault. Just an odd personal realization that occurred during my time with this book.

I'm sooo glad that Crina gave me a chance to listen to and review this book at no charge, and I would encourage everyone to give it a listen. I know I'm a fan now, and I can't wait to read the rest of what she's written!

Bluring the lines between dreams and reality.

With a varied mixture of gothic urban dreamscapes and wilderness filled with mysticism, Wispers and Other Strange Stories is a wonderful collection of provocative tales, that circumvent the boundaries between the conscious and subconscious mind, leaving the reader questioning what is real and what is nightmarish fantasy?

A creepy campfire classic

Don’t listen to these stories on your own in the dark! A wonderful collection of eerie and spine tingling short stories.
Stars and snowflakes was my instant favourite in this collection. Surreal and spooky. Just as it should be. We’ve all heard someone shouting out for help. But what happens if we dare to investigate? Listen and you’ll find out.
