Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Me | 9/27/2013

    " Short stories that can be serially linked without thinking how or why. This is it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 peaseblossom | 8/23/2013

    " Nice short stories, more ironical than scary. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roland Rice | 8/3/2013

    " I would recommend this book for people who like suspense, and personally I liked this story because it wasn't really hard to follow. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 8/2/2013

    " Talk about creepy stuff...this one kept me up at night. :-/ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Ingemar | 4/3/2013

    " This isn't the *exact* edition; I read the free ebook version of "The Monkey's Paw" available from Mobipocket.com. The story is awesome, just as I remembered it, although I think I would have enjoyed it better had their dead son actually walked into their house as a zombie...... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Noah Soudrette | 1/27/2013

    " I only got about 69 pages into this collection before I put it down and never picked it up again. While the mood Jacobs creates is palpable at times, most stories were either a let down, or never grabbed me from the beginning. Very disappointing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natajah | 12/13/2012

    " i liked the monkey paw even though it was kinda scary i would recommend this book for people who likes surprises "

    " THESE ARE REALLY SCARY STORIES!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 11/19/2012

    " The number one scariest tale--at only 15 pages, it's a quick read that leaves you creeped out, but also a little disappointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 8/23/2012

    " This book can spark some romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda Marshall | 6/7/2012

    " I love how the author leaves the actual scary parts up to the reader's imagination. I really enjoyed these dark, suspenseful tales. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew Neal | 4/8/2012

    " The Monkey's Paw is great, and actually kind of scary, just like I remembered from junior high. The rest are cute little creepy stories that are more amusing than frightening. There's a bit more dialect than I like, but that was the style back then. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick | 9/8/2011

    " Good old-school scary stories, everyone should read the title tale. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Janice | 5/24/2011

    " this book will give you the creeps. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonathan | 5/18/2011

    " I think I was in grade 3 or 4 when I first had this story read to me. My teacher also showed the class a movie version of this on Halloween. My young mind created horrible images of a mutilated young man knocking on my bedroom door every night for a long, long time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaethe | 5/18/2011

    " One of the top ten short stories I've ever read. The effect lingers long after the reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lyndsay | 3/27/2011

    " Lesson Learned. Be careful what you wish for. You never know what evil things will have to happen for you to get your wish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William | 3/9/2011

    " Ah, middle-school english class nostalgia. The Monkey's Paw is a great piece; the theme is pretty simple, but it's written in a really chilling way that gets to you when you're young. Heck, it still gets to me now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Isabella | 1/9/2011

    " THE BOOK WAS KINDA COOL. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 D.L. | 9/28/2010

    " Read this in high school and just listened to it on audio. It's as good now as it was then. Classic horror. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 6/2/2010

    " This was one of those short stories that was good, enjoyable, but not a 'need-to-read' tale. It is, however, one of those short stories that shows the weight that all classics carry.

    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alphamale73 | 3/25/2010

    " My all time favorite book! I read this short story as an adolescent in grade school and have loved the message ever since. Be careful what you ask for...you just might get it!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Camilla | 3/5/2010

    " I really liked this book.I read it at the school library.When I finished it,I felt like "Whoa,you really need to be careful of what you wish for!" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 2/27/2010

    " SO CREEPY - of all the books I read in my childhood, this one stands out as the scariest/creepiest. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathryn | 2/19/2010

    " Was quite disappointed with this one. Not scary at all, and actually pretty boring.

About the Author

W. W. Jacobs (1863–1943) is considered a master of the macabre tale, mostly for his work The Monkey’s Paw, a classic horror short story. He was a master at weaving terror and suspense into scenes of everyday life. Nevertheless, his popularity in his own lifetime arose mostly due to his amusing maritime tales of life along the London docks.
