A word about the content
Just because it was not for me doesn't mean others wont enjoy the element of "True" ghost stories. I prefer stories with more humour and action to balance the death and realism of life.
Personally I found the narration flat. I realise that voices are a very personal thing and that a narrator who would suit one listener would drive another listener to the brink or to sleep.
My strongest feeling about this collection is that it should have a warning about the disturbing content. The first story has a brutal rape described in detail. At least one later story features the suicide of a young girl. Yet another features the appalling murder of a new born baby. I know that not everyone will be troubled by these, as these stories have a fictional aspect and are ghost stories but I think its worth mentioning.
