A really great selection of stories

Would you listen to Macabre Tales again? Why?

yes but in small increments a story or two at a time.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Since this is a story collection its not a relevant question.

Did Cathy Dobson do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I had trouble staying focused during Ms. Dobson's narration to be honest. She has a lovely voice with a rich timbre but for some reason I could not stay focused and found myself having to rewind frequently because I would zone out during the listening session.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
