Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Ian | 2/3/2014

    " I read this book of short stories to take part in a genre challenge for "fantasy" novels. In truth it is not just fantasy but a mixed bag of "tales of the imagination".....some fantasy but also dystopia, sci-fi, magic realism, soft horror, mystery plus a sprinkling of some just very strange tales. As fantasy is not really my thing, it was always going to be a hard sell and so it proved. I really enjoyed about 3 of the 20 odd stories; those by Neil Gaiman, Joe Lansdale & Elizabeth Hand but abandoned another 3 and found the rest just OK, hence my rating. The author list is pretty stellar and I'm sure that fans of imagination genres will enjoy the collection much more than me. "

    " My teacher borrowed this and then promptly stole it. They were that good. "

    " Go Jodi Picoult for raising the creepy bar. I think she's a great writer but the CNN-tagline plots are kinda blah. This is a great collection so far, I like to read a random when I have a smoke on the doorstep. "

    " There is some AWESOME stuff in here! Another reminder of how much I enjoy a good book of short stories. The Gaiman, obviously, is tremendous. As is the Joe Hill. Co-editor Al Sarrantonio's tale is also RIVETING, and Diana Wynne Jones rattles off a whimsical tale of Christmas annoyance that is sure to draw a chuckle. "
