Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.
The perfect kick-off to Halloween season. Five of the six stories were new to me, and the sixth was Poe's TTH, which never gets tired. Unlike most audiobooks of classic short story collections, the production was wonderful. The narrator is lively and clearly having fun with the material, the sound is crisp and clear, and the music and sound effects add atmosphere rather than intrude on the consciousness. I will keep an eye out for the other volumes in this series.
