These tales were really short, easy to read, and truly creepy. Some were actually horrifying. I received the book on a Thursday and read most of it before bedtime, which amplified the creep factor. It is probably best to read only a few stories at a time so your heart rate returns to normal fairly quickly. I ignored a fellow reviewer's advice not to read the book while alone and was afraid I'd have nightmares, but didn't. No visitations in the night, no eerie sounds, no encounters of the weird kind. If you enjoy reading paranormal stories, you will like this book. If you tend to be the nervous sort, don't read it after dark. Note to self: don't read any future sequels when alone at home after dark.
