Telling you more would spoil the fun.

Hilarious and fantastic!

A fun listen from beginning to end! Written in a similar fashion to Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles, which guarantees something everybody will enjoy (even if you don't like the whole thing, you'll probably like at least one story). Bill Oberst Jr brings the stories to life with unique voices and a wonderfully smooth way of talking that really engages the listener. Dramatic and comedic timing was downright perfect and I thoroughly enjoyed his Winnie-The-Pooh-sounding cat. Gretchen Rix leaves plenty to the imagination while also managing to build a unique world around the concept of walking, talking, murdering macadamia trees that (unlike most horror stories) doesn't end in the total annihilation of the threat in question. I enjoyed it immensely and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes a creative concept (or to those who know a good tree).

Nice and creepy!

A very good series of short horror stories, brought vividly to life by Bill Oberst Jr. I love that Ms. Rix took ordinary macadamia trees and made them creepy, sentient characters. I hope to see more stories about them! :)

I really enjoyed listening(and I would recommend listening in the dark; I didn't, but the next time I definitely will).

The stories will make you look over your shoulder, any time you're around any trees!

So if you love horror, and are looking for something different, check this out. I very much recommend it!
