What would you call people who steal the newly buried dead and sell their bodies for medical dissection? In Stevenson's day, they were sometimes called resurrectionists - but he calls them Body-Snatchers and tells a grisly, memorable story about them. A master of terror and suspense, Stevenson lets his imagination explore the depths of human superstitions. Also included on this recording are the stories Isle of Voices and The Waif Woman.

    " It was okay, but not the greatest read. "

    " I read this awhile ago....apparently I've been busy....for October, thinking it would be fun to read a scary story. It was o.k. I've definitely read better short stories. The whole premise and timeline in which it took place were kind of creepy, but that's about it. "

    " This is a wonderful shaggy-dog story. At least, I think it's shaggy-dog. Would someone please read the last sentence and tell me what you think? "

    " This was just another short story in the Dr. Jekyll book. I read it in about 1/2 an hour. It was well written and a good Halloween type ghost story. A little silly and a little creepy, but a good read. "

    " The story is quite short but pretty scary. After finishing it I can honestly admit that I don't get it. Maybe I am too reasonable or lacking imagination or faith in the supernatural. "

    " It was okay. Its a scary story that you would tell little kids on holloween night. "

    " Ok it was the only book I could find!! I did not enjoy this but it was a short story and it was at least tolerable enough to finish. I didn't like the ending and as it was supposed to be a horror story, I didn't find it horrific at all!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 MacKenzie | 12/18/2008

    " This book was about doctors who dissect humans, yet obtain the bodies from people who most often apparently murder them since the doctors pay them for the bodies. I got really confused in this book. The only spooky part was the last page, and it wasn't really that scary anyway. "

    " Not Stevenson's best, but still a collection of three short stories that are very much in his style and therefore really enjoyable. "
