pick your narrators wisely

The narrator sounds so monotone you are incapable of getting into the story. Wasn't able to finish.

This Narrator ruins the Story

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I wish they would use good narrators, some of these narrators are horrible and ruin the stories!

meh

Any additional comments?

The narrator that read this book was terrible. He had the same voice for all characters,and it was hard to distinguish between them at times.
The stories remind me more of R.L. Stine,if it weren't for the swearing. They were very predictable,and a little juvenile. I would not waist a credit or money on this one.

Delightfully disturbing

This is the 2nd title I have listened to buy this author and I really enjoy him. I especially liked "Scarecrows"

My Second Foray into Mr. Bray's Short Stories

Would you listen to Funhouse again? Why?

I don't really listen to audiobooks a second time, so no. But, that has nothing to do with the stories or performance.

What did you like best about this story?

This was my second Michael Bray short story collection. I gave the first one I listened to 4 stars and really considered it 4.5 stars, only lacking that last half star due to a few minor inconsistencies in a few of the stories. But I still thought it was very good. I went 5 full stars with Funhouse. There's really nothing lacking in these stories. Mr. Bray tells a variety of angles from the straight forward, in-your-face horror to the angular type story that brings you in one way and then turns you another way right at the end. I'm highly impressed with Mr. Bray's stories and his control of the narrative. I highly recommend both books.

Which scene was your favorite?

I don't know about scene, but I enjoyed his vampire story quite a bit. In Dark Corners he gave a unique spin on zombie stories, letting us see the perspective of a man turning into a zombie. I don't like zombies or zombie stories, but I liked that story quite a lot. In Funhouse, he gives us a future in which vampirism can be cured, and is in a man who is then immediately put on trial for all of the atrocities he committed while "infected". Hearing the former vampire's defense of his past in the court trial was interesting and somewhat interesting in a philosophical way. Again, I'm not a big fan of vampires or vampire stories, but Mr. Bray brought me a story that made me interested. Kudos, sir!

Any additional comments?

Read it, you won't regret it.
