Trigger Warning

(0.5 stars)

Posting a Trigger Warning - these have gross violence. esp. Poe's Black Cat. Couldn't finish it. Wish I'd not heard that part.

Marjorie Daw

(5 stars)

I only listened to this one story from this collection. Marjorie Daw is a really great story and that is all I will say. If I say any more it might spoil your listening pleasure. Highly recommend. Also the narrator was top notch!

The Toys of Peace

(4 stars)

When children pointing a finger as an imaginary weapon at another child may cause suspension from school, this is social engineering at its best. A good dramatic reading I enjoyed anyways.

Didn’t finish it

(2 stars)

I didn’t realise that the theme for this selection of stories was morbid plots. I listened to a few stories, and then googled the rest to confirm my suspicions that this was a sad bunch of tales. They might be well written and appreciated by others, but I like my reading it be a little more cheerful.
