Summary

Ghost stories for the digital age by the Booker Prize-longlisted author of The Wall.

A mysterious, tall man haunts a country house in search of a cell signal; a translator at an academic conference starts hearing things over his headset that nobody should hear; a family discovers their dependence on the latest technological gadget goes to the very foundations of human relations; and the merry contestants in a reality TV show may actually be...somewhere very hellish, indeed. Reality and Other Stories is a book of disquiet that captures the severe disconnection and distraction of our time.

perfectly creepy for today's tech world

other than putting a longer break between stories to give you a chance to chew on the surprising conclusion to every one, this book is a fabulously written and delivered bit of creepiness for the tech age.

Unusual and Disquieting

This collection of ghost stories was unusual and a little disquieting. They reminded me of stories from Black Mirror and other similar shows. Not an exciting or hair-raising listen, but mildly entertaining.

The narrators of this collection did a nice job.
