Within Strange Tales you will find 22 weirdly twisted stories. Some will frighten, others will shock, but all will stay with you long after the final sentence has finished.
If you love the Twilight Zone, Black Mirror, Tales From the Crypt, or Tales from the Darkside then feel free to come closer and begin. Who knows what you might find?
I loved these stories. I wanted short stories so I could listen then get in with my duties... that wasn't the case. I lived them so much I would just keep saying one more chapter!!

I love short story collections but this one was bad. The stories themselves range from decently capturing to nails on the chalkboard of your head boring and pointless but sadly most stay to the boring. The narrators voice is ill suited and his "old man" voice he uses for every character gets old, man, real quick.
Theres plenty of other collections on here besides this one, go listen to them.

I feel bad for authors when I return a book. I feel bad now. This isn't a BAD book. It's just not up to snuff with what I'm used to. Stephen King, Bentley Little, etc. I like horror that makes you think and sneaks up on you. This... not so much. I've only listened to the first 4 stories, but I am returning this book, because I just can't read anymore. And although the narrator isn't bad, he's not good for this particular book. For me anyway.
I DO think this book would be enjoyable for teenagers and maybe young adults that haven't been exposed to truly seasoned authors (not sure if that's the right metaphor). This book is a bit amateurish for me and I just can't keep listening. I don't think the author is terrible and I do think he has potential. I just think that (for me) he has a ways to go before his writing catches up to the caliber of story that I'm used to. I do NOT mean for that to be discouraging. It was simply a VERY predictable read for me.
If you thought Twilight was well written, you'll probably really enjoy these stories. And I hope you do :-)
