One scary story out of a dozen

I bought this for an 1800 mile road trip. Out of a dozen so far, I've only found one story amusing or even slightly scary. The narration on almost every story has been full and drab and is making me fall asleep while driving.

If you are a fan of Anthology books, don't be afraid to check this one out!

I love horror stories and anthology books in general. I have checked out a couple of these The Best Horror Of The Year and they are mixed bags. Some stories are slow burners and there are a few great ones scattered about. The narration is always pretty good! Don't be afraid to check these out. If you do you might miss out on really good stuff!!
