Very Well Written

This author has a command of language and isn't afraid to use it. Powerful, ghostly imagery. While all of the stories are unsettling to varying degrees, and there is some gore and horror (and even one humorous story), there's more of a sadness to each than a jump out of your boots scare. The narration was stellar. Francesca Townes treats us to a mini-novel approach to each story, giving a lot of bang for your audiobook buck. She's excellent at first-person male characters and even her conversations between multiple male characters worked. I took one star off on Story, because to be honest, I was expecting more thrills and chills, but I might come back and change that to a full five for the excellent writing.

I am not sure how to describe this book. I have some sort of confusion about what I feel about it.
