Great narrators bad story selection

All narrators gave great performances, but I just couldn,t get invested into these stories. I found I was skipping large chunks of this audiobook because I was getting board while listening. Personally, I wouldn’t recommend this book.

Sets the bar high for anthologies

Of course not every story is going to be as good as the rest but in this book they all come really close. I loved almost all of them and liked the ones I didn't love. The narration was exquisite too.

One of the best anthologies I've read

I really enjoyed this anthology. It was a great mix of styles and story types. It is hard to pick a favourite.

Monster Girls and Slasher Boys

loved this! each story was interesting and creepy. I loved trying to guess what stories, shows and movies they were each based on. Cool idea:)

just okay

I remember reading this collection when it first came out. And I remember thinking that most of the stories in it were just okay. And, boy, were my memories right.

But I was jonesing for some more Julia Whelan narration, so I picked this up.

The rest of the narrators were just okay, nothing to write home about. And poor Julia only got to narrate, like, three stories here, two of them in a dumb Southern redneck voice, rather than her own, which stunk.

Most of the stories were just okay and, for me at least, the best one was the Alice In Wonderland take-off (which was read, of course, by Julia Whelan). That being said, there was only one serious stinker in the bunch, and that was "M".

If you have money to burn on something fairly mediocre or just plain aren't picky, this audiobook gets my vote.
