Great book of short stories!
This book really surprised me with the quality of its short stories! The stories were visceral and savage. I believe out of about 20 stories there were only 2 or 3 that were weak. Trust me buy this book you won't regret it!
Absolutely Fantastic (and I'm a snob)
This is pretty much the very best horror anthology I have listened to on Audible, and trust me, "horror anthology" is my main search phrase.
These stories are intelligent, creative, and engaging... they typically don't answer all of your questions (and I *love*that!!!), they don't spell things out for you, and they have just a touch of the surreal. There's natural... then supernatural... then beyond that you get into the surreal/unreal, and this has just the right amount of that last element.
Honestly, I've probably listened to *hundreds* of horror collections here, and this one checked all my boxes. Many times I listen and think I should do a review (whether positive or negative) - this collection *compelled* me to do a review.
Big thanks to all who were involved. The narrator made me a bit uncomfortable right from the first story, where he breathily sang for the sake of the story... as the stories wound along, I found that slight uncomfortability only added to the experience.
So very happy with this purchase. If you like your horror edgy, not always with the "good side" winning, and leaving you with lingering questions to ponder, this is probably very much for you.
Dark and gruesome in places but I really enjoyed it and I highly recommend this book.
The storylines and characters are amazing. The narration is really great.
