A Whole Slew of Quick, Decent Stories
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
The collection was pretty decent. Some stories are better than others and there weren't any stories I didn't like. I think in hindsight I wouldn't mind paying the cash price, just under $10, but I think I would save my credit for something a little more expensive, but it wasn't a waste of my credit either. I would actually like to rate the book 3.5 stars rather than 3, but I don't think it is a true 4 star book.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Some people might wonder about the gore level. This isn't wickedly violent or gorey. It's horror, so you have to figure on some oddness, some uncomfortableness in some of the stories, but there isn't any extreme violence or gore (or sex).
What aspect of the narrators’s performance would you have changed?
I am assuming the authors are reading their own works. Again, some of the narrators are better than others, but nobody's narration was bad. Considering how often an author reading his or her own work turns out for the worse, I think each author did a good job reading their works.
Was Baby Teeth worth the listening time?
Any additional comments?
The stories are quick, the originality of the ideas range from decent to quite clever. Nothing bad here, and there are a few shining stars. A decent collection if you would like some exposure to some lesser known horror writers. Give it a shot.
