Clearly EARLY work...

I'll admit that Ibsen isnt my favorite author, but Ive enjoyed his other works.

This... wow.

The plots themselves are solid- the real kernel of ideas are great.

But the reason I call this obviously early work (perhaps even former Creepypasta submissions?) is due to the thesaurus vomit jarring me out of the stories at every turn. These stories are told in first person, but the language used would be more at home in a period piece, not one about two 20 something guys who eat pizza and watch movies.

Wish i hadnt wasted a credit, honestly.

The stories are creepy and weird, which will draw you in and keep you entertained for the over 7hrs of listening. I highly recommend!

Stories that will keep your attention

Truly enjoyed these short stories. Although, I would've liked to see some things explained, like who the old lady in the white house was. But, it still turned out well.
