4.0 out of 5 stars Good Collection and Presentation October 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Best Of Halloween is a collection of old, spooky stories. Most will be familiar to the reader and don't need to be reviewed. What does need to be reviewed is TBOH collection itself. I found it to be an enjoyable collection. You can get all these works for free elsewhere, but if you want several and you like you Kindle to have fewer items for easier navigation (as I do), then this is a hood way to get them. There is also a section at the end about the history of Halloween that is enjoyable, as well as suggestions for Halloween viewing and a list of film adaptations of all the included stories. I return to a couple of these writings often, particularly at Halloween, and I'm fairly content having them in this form

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Easy to Navigate October 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great collection, and obviously very cheap. Some might complain because the works themselves are already in the public domain, but to have them all nicely organized like this, with good formatting, spelling, etc, is definitely worth a dollar. The movie list is also pretty good; I have yet to watch any but I've put a few on my list! Each movie comes with an informative blurb, so you know what you're getting yourself into and why it's a significant (or not-so-significant) adaptation of the novel.

I actually found these stories more compelling than modern ghost stories and I've read some doozies. I'm now on a quest to read every classic ghost/suspense story I can find.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tales Of Terror NEVER Disappoint... August 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Seriously, where are you going to get such a great compilation of classic horror tales for that price. It's TOTALLY worth it (sorry if I sound like a teenage girl, but I get into fanboy mode when I talk about Frankenstein and Dracula). Grab it if you love these stories and are lacking on your e-reader...
