Mr. Crasto is, as always, enthralling.

(5 stars)

There are a few stories repeated from other collection, but generally a nice set. The readers are good, and one , an experienced one, is excellent.

These are good stories. But coc is really disturbing. But brilliantly read and written

(3.5 stars)

not bad, but not great either.

'Coco' is a difficult story to listen to, not any fault of the great job done by the Reader; the tale itself is one of a cruel, meanspirited person committing equine murder in the most evil ways. As a lover of all animals (with the exceptions of slugs and earwigs - don't get me started) it had a heartbreaking effect upon me. I am adding this review of 'At the Gate'. It's more of a question, really..why would you make me cry?!?! That was wrenchingly sad. Now I am thinking of all the puppets I have known throughout my life..😭. I thought these were supposed to be scary. Now, instead of being covered in goose flesh, I am having an ugly-cry moment. First the horse, now an afterlife of deceased canines. Sure hope the next one isnt about where hamburgers come from.😟
