This was a good mix of crazy, horror short stories. Very imaginative and the added music made it a bit like a radio show, an X rated radio show.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Time was well spent.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
probably no, these were short stories and like a material for a TV-show.
Any additional comments?
This was 2nd J.D. Brink book I listened. It included 3 + 1 horror/mystery stories and backround story about his inspiration for these stories. There were no weak stories, but not great ones either. There were no true suspense moments and stories felt little bit old or heard before ones. As he described his inpiration, being a kid in 80's and new kid(adult) in town, leaves lots of time to spend alone and lots of time to read and watch TV. So these stories seems to be seen in X-files, Amazing Stories, Twilight Zone etc.
J.D. Brink has skills for writing stories, but something is missing. Stories are short so there should be that hook in first few minutes to keep a listener or a reader waiting for more. In most of Lovecraft's stories hook is at the end, but usually it is supernatural and so horrifying that it pays to read slow starts. Also everyone knows what to expect when reading Lovecraft.
So if you're not raised with horror stories and mystery TV-shows, dated them again when being teenager and lived with them in new town then these stories might be new to you.
