What disappointed you about Danse Macabre?
I didn't even stop to consider whether buying Danse Macabre would be a good idea or not. Of course it would! It's a book I've loved for years, now in audiobook format, so I don't have to dig around for my old, crumbling copy! I can even share it with my friends!
Well, yeah... About that.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
William Dufris is probably a super nice guy. Like, super nice, super standup.
But he's got a voice for silent movies. His delivery is just so contrived and obnoxious. He doesn't sound like he's reading a book; it's more like he's some cartoon character trying to pretend to be human in a bid to escape his animated purgatory for our world.
He sounds like if someone took Rob Schneider and stuffed him full of bees. This is state-of-the-art in offensively annoying.
I hated every second. And the friends I thought to share it with? They made it about five minutes before begging me to shut it off.
Our noses continued to bleed for half an hour.
Any additional comments?
This narrator hates your eyes, and he WILL destroy them.

This is by far the most interesting book I read all year! Exploring the horror genre through the eyes of Stephen King - what's not to love? Sometimes the book is written as if the two of us are sitting down and having a cup of coffee and discussing horror films and books. Other times the narrative feels like I am attending a lecture course in college - a good one - the kind that everyone fights to sign up for and actually attends. Either way, King gives great insight into the world of horror.
I purchased the revised book version with the essay "What's Scary" as a forenote and I really loved what had to say 30 years later.
