I’ve really struggled to figure out anything to say about this book. It’s a collection of dark and gritty short stories. Every now and then, it references the other stories. I overlooked them the first time, but they stood out the second time. It’s a fun collection, something to turn your brain off and listen to, like a campfire story of sorts.
It’s been a minute since I paused my second listen and the first thing that cums to mind with the narration is … forgettable. I don’t remember much of anything about it. The narrator can’t tell the difference between ‘O’ and ‘0’, which I find insufferably annoying. The narration was alright overall, but the last story was read in this boring, lifeless, dull voice that made me listen to the book a second time to make sure it wasn’t all that bad.
If you’re looking for a book that’s going to move you emotionally or an adventure or whatever else, this isn’t it. If you’re looking for some creatively spooky and fun stories to play a videogame to or celebrate Halloween with, this is a decent pick in my opinion. For what it’s worth, I’ll probably be revisiting this around Halloween 2023 because movies aren’t my thing.
