    "Loved this series "Back in the day...""

    A couple of hiccups within the recording, but still listenable. Not one of the better stories, but was an enjoyable enough way to pass a little time.

    "Not As Good As Origional"

    Did not meet my expectations. Week depth of storyline.
    Too much narrating, nothing to get your teeth into.

    Best bit is the laugh at the end.

    I drifted of half way through, not riveting.

    "Uninteresting"
    Would you try another book written by Charles Beaumont or narrated by Eric Bogosian?

    Having never heard a Twilight Zone episode, though well aware of its place in the annuls of history I wasn't sure of what to expect but given the price of this audiobook I thought I would give it a go. All I can take from this specific story is that Beaumont has no shock value but Bogosian was fine at playing his character.

    Not a bad story, not up to usual Twilight Zone standard, guess this one wasn't meant for radio.

    "Low rate drama"
    Would you try another book written by Charles Beaumont or narrated by Eric Bogosian?

    Nope, I found this quite dull


    What was most disappointing about Charles Beaumont’s story?

    The twilight zone was always great for the occasional twist or surprise ending of some sort with a philosophical edge. This was not interesting with the ending and it made no sense to the character or to the rest of the story.<br/><br/>I cant say more without spoilers

    "Eat Dirt"

    I love The Twilight Zone and will be getting the Volumes. Beaumont, Matheson and Serling, wrote the majority of the episodes. They were great writers. This story falls a little short. It is predictable and really not scary. The production and the narration are excellent and really enhance the experience. For the small amount of money it is, you might want to give it a try.

    "Not a complete story"

    This round spent so much time showing how the main character was a cheapskate that it forgot about how to wrap up the ending. Not the Best Of The Twilight Zone by any means.

    "Disappointing"

    As a longtime fan of The Twilight Zone TV series and radio dramas in general, I was really looking forward to this. The performances were good, but the story didn't hold up. First, it was a 20-minute story stretched to fill 40 minutes, making for a very slow script. Secondly, there was not a single sympathetic character, leaving me in a hurry to get out of this house and this neighborhood as fast as possible. Thirdly, the ending just didn't go anywhere. I was hoping for a "juicy" revelation about the dirt, but there was nothing there. I'm glad this was free and no longer than it was; otherwise I would be asking for a refund. It certainly did nothing to encourage me to buy additional segments of this series.

    This was a franchise story and had all the elements for a great storyline. This was a great storytelling told by an utter nonsense.

    "Aorta? Seriously?"

    The bad:
    Nonsensical story that goes nowhere.
    Lead actor (Bogosian) reads his lines in a very stilted artificial "radio acting" style.
    Annoying somewhat obtrusive "mood enhancing music" throughout the episode.
    The name Luther Aorta - Seriously?

    The good: Convincing burp at the end...

    Avoid!
