A house inches 800 miles to confess its horrible crime. The last resident of a mental institution discovers he's not alone. A middle-schooler performs an experiment to determine how much time we fit in dreams. Boys looking for wonder find more than they're expecting in the Adirondacks with Charles Fort. A detective learns everything he's ever wanted to know...and some things he hasn't. In Will Ludwigsen's short stories of strangeness and mystery, the universe has a way of being weird in just the ways we need it to be. There are answers to many of our deepest questions...and they're usually far more personal than we expect. What are you in search of? And what is in search of you?

"Wonderfully Off-Beat Stories Beautifully Performed"
This is a fascinating collection of stories that put me in mind of Lovecraft, Philip K. Dick, and other masters of the fantasy/horror genre. Adding to the pleasure of the stories is the superb reading of Mr. Hoffman, one of the best I've listened to. I will definitely seek out other books by this author and readings by this narrator.
"Awesome power of the imagination"
Yes. Because its good.
The twists and turns. A wild ride.
Phillip Hoffman has an amazing range. He has a knack for portraying the characters in a very believable fashion. Loved his voice. It was a scary book and his voice is soothing.
The Speed of Dreams blew me away.
Looking forward to another book by Will Ludwigsen narrated by Philip Hoffman!
"Shades of the very best Twilight Zones! Brilliant!"
Guided by the warm soothing tones of Philip Hoffman, this imaginative collection of short tales takes the listener on a wonderful series of strange though surprisingly relatable journeys. Filled with delightfully imaginative writing and surprising twists, this is one of the most enjoyable audiobooks I've experienced in ages. Thank you!
Philip Hoffman provided a beautiful, rich narration of an interesting story. Highly recommend this audio book.
"I will listen to Mr Hoffman read the phone book"
I loved the narrator , how do I find any more work of this narrator Phillip Hoffman. I truly could listen to him read anything!?
"Little bits of life"
I would listen to some of the stories again.
This seems an unfair question with such a large assortment of characters and stories. Hard pressed I would probably pick the moving house and its intense passion to set things right and tell its story. I have often wished that the walls of the houses I have lived in could tell me their stories!
I love the way Philip Hoffman read this book. He is precise and clear and it was his intonation that kept me interested in continuing to listen to the stories.
Yes I wanted to, but it is nearly impossible for me to have that much time in one sitting.
"Entertaining short stories"
I never read the print version, so I have no comment. I just enjoy audio's.
As a rule, I don't read Short Story books. Therefore I cannot make a comparison.
This book was recommended by a friend.
First of all, I liked Mr. Hoffman's voice. I liked the way he took on the persona of the
individual stories. For me, these changes made the listening very interesting.
Smiling, warm feelings. Wondering. especially about the 3 minute short story.
What other books has Mr. Hoffman read? Can you refer me to any Novels he has
