Definitely listen in the dark
Any additional comments?
**I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.**
The intro suggests reading at night, alone, in the dark. I thought I had the perfect setting: my porch, under the moonlight, just before the storm. While it was a good setting, it wasn’t the perfect one. My suggestion: camping.
Having just spend a few nights in the middle of nowhere with my family, I kept thinking about them while listening. The perfect campfire, my love, my three teenage kids (one with his girlfriend), owls hooting, coyotes howling across the lake, and every single person begging for scary stories. That would have been the perfect time to break out the speakers and listen to the creepy low tones of Mr. Bennett’s voice.
The stories combined with the perfect narrator for these kinds of stories are not quite scary enough while you’re sitting close enough to the comforts of home. But listen to them while you’re in the middle of nowhere without your own walls to keep out the creepers (maybe driving down a long highway at night where all you can see is what your headlights illuminate) and you might get just the right amount of tingle dripping down your spine.
Now, I can’t wait to go camping again with my family and see what they think about these stories.
I agree with some reviewers that the spooky factor could be dialed up a bit for most of us. But the writing is solid and Mr. Bennett is a fantastic choice for the narration.
