What made the experience of listening to Skeleton in the Closet and Other Scary Stories the most enjoyable?

The original stories with unexpected endings made these a treat. The narrator was the trick!

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

His imagination and skill at writing short stories that was "ick!" Did make my skin crawl... similar to the worms mentioned! (And not only during that story.)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

*shivers* Several made me wanna shower ... with the curtains open!

Any additional comments?

The stories and storytelling are top notch! I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who wants creepy shorts!

A Spooky Collection of Short Stories

Skeleton in the Closet was such an awesome listen. The stories were scary but not too scary. They were exciting and thrilling. I can't wait until my grandkids get to listen to this audiobook. They'll love it. I think 11-13 is a perfect age group for this audio. The length is good too.

Gene Blake's narration was amazing. I was extremely entertained by his vocal performance. His character voices were SO good. He was incredibly good. I'd definitely recommend this audiobook.
