good stories..

(4 stars)

a few Readers were better than others, but most of these Readers did excellent work. I'd especially like to point out the story The Dead Smile. The story rambles a tad, and I found myself a bit confused at one point.. but the Rafe Ball performed incredibly. And yes, he did better than simply Reading the tale, he performed it. thanks once again Librivox & all the Readers.. I thought I'd finished this series of books, so I'm elated to have stumbled upon yet another. I've been scary ghost stories, and this really helped me fill that void. Stay safe, and as the late, great John Lewis was fond of saying, "get in good trouble". ☯️🌻♾💝⚛ just need to add this note: The Man-Eating Tree may cause you to distrust plants, potted or not. I'm sticking with cats.
