If you like to work on a cost per minute basis then you won't be disappointed by this. The download is in 8 parts of 7-8 hours each making over 61 hours of listening. There are over 80 stories and poems and I've enjoyed the majority of them.
It's nice that there's a mixture of styles. As well as horror there's sci-fi, fantasy, humour, psychological etc. Some of the stories are classics that date back to before Bram Stoker's Dracula (in fact one of the stories is a chapter that wasn't incuded in the published version of Dracula). I was particularly pleased to come across a Stephen King short story that I don't recall coming across before.
I did find myself wondering when each story started when would the vampire be revealed? I guess that's to be expected though :).
My only serious negative observation is that the way that iTunes burns the tracks to CD it makes it difficult to skip to the start of then next story on a car CD player when you don't like a particular story.
I really enjoyed this book; the tension grips you round the throat from the start, and never lets up. A rightly famous story. I haven't seen the movie version but it would be difficult to better the book.
I docked a star as I wasn't too taken with the narrator, but I'ld still strongly recommend the book.
