I thought that this was a very well done book. The pictures were brilliant, and that made the stories even scarier. Althought the stories were sometimes a tad predictable, I really, really enjoyed it.

Loved having this to read. It was so capturing and so much better than I expected. What I expected was a bunch of irrelevant stories thrown together for researches sake.

Wow, I didn't realise what a heavy book this was - it was slightly exhausting carrying this around, but kind of worth it.

Este libro es básicamente una recopilación de cuentos y relatos sobre vampiros, hombres lobos y muertos. Algunos si que me dieron un poco de miedo otros simplemente me aburrieron, pero no quiero decir que sea mal libro. Es estándar.
Tengo que mencionar la edición del libro que es preciosa, tiene tantas colores y dibujos muy bien realizados.

If you are very easily scared, don't read this book. However, I recommend this book to everyone else. My favorite stories were those of Saki, Howard and Benson.
