Listening to this story amplified the experience. The voice is perfect! Also, this short is so much deeper than a lorno Necro tale. It's an exploration of grief and one man's story of loneliness and moving forward in life. I very highly recommend this one

Not What I Expected; It Was Better

Story – 5/5
Narration – 5/5

“Stirring the Sheets” by Chad Lutzke is a very sad story about an old mortician who so misses his dead wife that he does something very weird.

As weird as this was, this is the most believable “weird" story I’ve read. The characters were very likeable and real, especially the MC.

Not what I expected; it was better.

The narrator was the perfect choice for this story!

WARNING! This is NOT EXTREME! But if the idea of corpses bothers you… don’t read Horror! 😄

Recommend.

Sad Tale of Loneliness and Loss

This was a sad story of a man grieving the loss of his wife. I have not lost a wife before but this seemed all too realistic which made it that much more depressing. Definitely well told and worth a listen if you are in a somber mood. Obviously, at some point it takes a turn and gets a bit creepy but thankfully nothing to perverse. Michael Gwynne did an excellent job with the narration. His voice was perfect for this story and definitely added to the somber feeling. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Cool

Amazing performance. Gwynne truly captured the tone of the novel.

The story was amazing, well written with no fluff. I liked how everything written was essential to the story. Emmet was a great character that I actually cared about, I felt what he felt. And this is a book I will be revisiting in the future. Nothing to complain about.
