Audiobook Review: The Bacchanal and Other Horrific Tales

An artist whose love for his wife has horrific results. 
A babysitting job gone horribly wrong. 
A talent agency that promises success no matter what; even if you are the one standing in the way. 

This chilling collection of modern horror stories is sure to have you peeking warily around corners and walking just a bit faster down dark streets. Full of both creepy events and morbid humor, The Bacchanal stands as a testament to humanity’s love of being afraid and of frightening others. Humanity’s fear of the unknown and fascination with the supernatural are masterfully depicted in these eleven stories. Though the supernatural elements are the centerpiece of the collection, it is the believable actions of the ordinary humans, both evil and well-meaning, that will send shivers down readers’ spines.



My Review

I chose to listen to this book after receiving a free copy from the publisher. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I enjoyed listening to most of these stories. Most of them were predictable but they were still creative. I didn’t see much point to the first story, “The Bacchanal on the Roof,” so I was a little concerned about the rest of the book but then “The Encouragement Specialists” kept me going. It was predictable but good. 

“Mountain of the Lost” about girls hiking on a mountain where another girl had disappeared and “Concerning Mister Suffolk” about a man who marries a woman for her money were my favorite stories.  

Keith McCarthy did a very good job of narrating. He has the kind of voice that is easy to listen to.
