Original Horror Anthology

What made the experience of listening to Night as a Catalyst the most enjoyable?

The performance by the narrator is the part of it that I enjoyed the best, as Joe Hempel has become someone I can rely on to perform practically anything. The stories themselves being original in comparison to other works I've read is a close second.

What other book might you compare Night as a Catalyst to and why?

I've read a lot of horror anthologies, so the obvious is comparing them to this. More specifically it compares with works that are of a more independent variety because instead of relying on old tropes it has some rather interesting settings and different perspectives on things.

What does Joe Hempel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings a great narration, as he does with everything I've listened to that he's done. The stories are varied and he does a good job with each of them making them all solid.

If you could take any character from Night as a Catalyst out to dinner, who would it be and why?

It's hard to say, a lot of the characters are nameless narrators and others are people who I really have no interest in meeting. I'd probably have to go with the main characters from 'One Up a Tree' because they seemed reasonable.

Any additional comments?

I received the audiobook for this in exchange for an honest review. It was full of short and not-so-sweet horror stories in a variety of situations. Recommended.
