brilliantly read. almost as theatrical as a radio drama but much better audio quality than the dramas I've found.

great story. the reader's voice went well with the setting.

Quiet, slow burn of a big horror in a small town. Excellent voiceover of a brilliantly told story.

The ending seemed a bit abrupt, but is interesting nonetheless.
