A horror in every breathless moment ....

Would you try another book from the authors and/or Cathy Dobson?

No, while all of the authors are enticing, Dobson's performance, however, is not.

What did you like best about this story?

Silent pauses without her dramatics. Gave my ears a rest.

How could the performance have been better?

.... even in the performance! Dobson was stretched beyond her limits.

Was Great American Short Stories worth the listening time?
