Compared to novels like "Stir of Echoes", these felt long and drawn out. I love the economy of language used in all three, however whether the narrator or the protrayal of women, these feel dated. Listening to them, I can understand why they've been out of print for so long.
Each tale is about Regular Guy thrown into incredible situations - and reacting to them in ways that to modern folks seem unsophisticated or slow.
Someone is Bleeding is Regular Guy doesn't know when how to walk away from Crazy.
Fury on Sunday is Regular Guy trapped with escaped Crazy
Ride the Nightmare is regular Guy's past catches up to his happy home.
In every situation, Regular Guy can't seem to get out of his own way, making every wrong choice and compounding it with more wrong choices. It was tiring.
However, I'm glad I read them and while they weren't what I was expecting it was good to get a little more Matheson under my belt.
Narrator wise, Robertson Dean would not have been my first choice. Character inflection aside, his deep, resonating voice made the stories feel heavier than they probably were. This is one of those rare cases where physically reading the book may be to the Reader's advantage.

Okay there is no character development, I'd like to kill myself with an ice pick listening to this. I have 7 more hours to go and I hate the two main characters! Story theme is weak again no character development, over describe the wrong things, I mean stale whiskey scent? Really... Oh pass on this unless you are desperate, as I was. I own over 240 audible books alone, not sure how many before this, I'm a thriller reader, this is not a thriller.
