Publisher's Summary

A woman rejects her husband's heart - and gives it back to him, still beating, in a plastic box. A little boy betrays his father to the harsh mercies of Santa Claus. A widower suspects his dead wife's face is growing over his own. A man goes to Hell, and finds he's roommate to the ghost of Hitler's pet dog. Giant spiders, killer angels, ghost cat photography, and the haunted house right at the center of the Garden of Eden. Deliciously frightening, darkly satirical, and always unexpected, Robert Shearman has won the World Fantasy Award, the British Fantasy Award, the Shirley Jackson Award, and the Edge Hill Reader's Prize. Remember Why You Fear Me gathers together his best dark fiction, the most celebrated stories from his acclaimed books, and 10 new tales that have never been collected before.

Very, very touching material

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It is more a book about life rather then sci-fi. Kind of a sci-fi book for those that *think* they don't like sci-fi.


Who was your favorite character and why?

All, but the husband and wife stories were extra touching.


Have you listened to any of Steven Menasche’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, I was led to this book based on his work.

Any additional comments?

I don't think they should have used an American to narrate. At times the narrator is using british-isms and they seem strange coming from an american (mum, etc.). That said, if you can let that go, you won't be sorry to listen to this somewhat long book. His tone is quite empathetic and thoughtful--I like this style of narration rather then the super theatrical reads I get from the library.
