Don't waste your time or credit on this mess!

Would you try another book from the authors and/or the narrators?

The reason I bought this book was to sample a wider group of authors. I did enjoy a few of the stories but most of those were by authors I already know and enjoy. I was disappointed.

What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

Several of the short stories seem unfinished. Some seem to be sketchy outlines with little content while others just end as if the author gave up in the middle.

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

The narration was not the issue with this book.

Was Vampires worth the listening time?

This is a long book, 19 or 20 hours. So it is a big investment of time. I would have to say that the few good, well written stories do not make up for the rest of it.

Great Number of Above Average Stories

While there are a few stories that seem like the author didn't know how to properly end them, the majority are excellent tales. Very different takes on what it is to be Vampire.
