Description

Working at a dead-end retail job in the middle of nowhere can be hard. The long hours. The helpless customers. The enormous eldritch horror living deep below the building. As the only full-time employee at the 24-hour gas station at the edge of town, Jack has pretty much seen it all. But when he decides to start an online journal documenting the bizarre day-to-day occurrences, he unwittingly attracts the attention of much more than just a few conspiracy theorists. 

With the body count steadily on the rise and a dark, ancient force infecting the dreams of everyone around him, Jack will do everything in his power to stay out of the way and mind his own business. After all, he’s just a gas station clerk. It’s not like he’s getting paid enough to wage battle against the nightmarish aberrations plaguing his community. Besides, he already has his hands full attempting to manage all those mysterious lawn gnomes, the mutant raccoons, and the charming phantom cowboy who lives in the bathroom.  

Based on the award-winning creepypasta by GasStationJack, Tales from the Gas Station: Volume One is a love letter to the pioneers of classic horror tailored to a generation that grew up in the era of smartphones and WiFi.

Such a wonderful read

I love the story. I cannot wait to continue to support Jack in the next couple of books. It’s such a shame I have to wait for more, but that makes everything sweeter. Thanks Jack, and MCP for your work

Very well written story and captivating narration

I'm sure most listeners are familiar with Mr. Creepy Pasta's narration, he's built quite the following. I first heard a part pf this story through his YouTube channel and loved it but never thought to get the audiobook until I received the recommendation from a friend.
I was not disappointed at all, I usually save my monthly credits for longer reads but I just knew it would be worth it to spend on a short volume such as this one.
The story of Jack is a very odd and powerful one. The scene it's set in is just the same. You will meet very crazy characters and the story will lead you through a roller coaster, one not absent of crazy loops and spirals.
I think it is really worth the listen, even to those who aren't fans of the infamous YouTube creepy stories narrator, Mr. Creepy Pasta.

Good all round story...

It was a good all round story. The plot line was a little weak, especially near the end. Narration was excellent though.

Perfect

Headline says it all, Jacck Townsend knows how to string words together perfectly Creepy pasta as narrator. You get pulled into the world you find a sense of calm. I love this book a series it's helped me through some hard times.

This is not Youtube

I enjoyed the story very much. For people critiquing it from not being scary I don't think it is meant to be, but I sympathize with your confusion. I listen to the narrator on YouTube and he's fantastic, there are a few times where his delivery during this Audiobook along with the story made me actually laugh out loud. That being said, this isn't a free video on YouTube or CreepyPasta Podcast, this is meant to be a finished product ready for purchase and I can't think of anything more unprofessional than a narrator who leaves in his mistakes. I understand people make mistakes, but while listening to the story at best it's laughable and at worst it brings everything to a screeching halt and takes me out of the story. My solution to this would be to edit them, just like every other narrator on this platform, especially when you're charging people.

Very Enjoyable Book

Now that I've gone ahead and finished the book, i do one to immediately address my love for this narrator. The narrator ( Mr. CreepyPasta) is an absolute joy to listen too. He is able to bounce between tension and comedy with ease. As for the book itself, I had a few minor issues. I wish the author would not jump around so much, I'm not sure if that tactic is being used to further captivate the reader, but it came across as outright annoying. I don't want to wait to be amazed, especially when they payoff doesnt feel rewarding. Other than that small detail, the book was enthralling.

I love it

I originally listened to MrCreepyPasta's narrations of the original Reddit posts, and bought this, afraid that it would be the same stories. But these go alongside the Reddit stories, helping with some questions and making more. It's incredibly funny and a great mystery story.

One of my most favorite nosleep series!

I absolutely loved the original Reddit stories and when Jack said he was putting out his book I couldn't wait. I bought the book back when it came out and didn't hesitate to buy the audible version.

Tales from the gas station is honestly a lot like an episode of The Twilight Zone (the old one not the new one, haven't watched that one yet.). The story itself is phenomenal and is 100x better when voiced By MCP. MCP bring life and style to all of the characters and breaths life into the story itself.

I absolutely love this book and I love the narrator too! I would definitely recommend to anyone that has a dark sense of humor (or a sense of humor at all) and to anyone who likes hearing strange stories.

Odd Thomas meets Monty Python

Interesting story and narration. Sometimes hard to follow, but think that this was actually intentional.

Perfect blend of horror, humor and strangeness.

I have been a huge fan of these stories since Mr. creepy pasta had short versions on his podcast. This is the first book I've bought outright without using credits in years, and got it the day it was released. can't wait for vol. 2 thru infinity.

Excellent listen - both book and narrator

My friend suggested that I read this book even though it’s unlike anything I read in general or listen -whatever - but I decided to give it a whirl and I was not disappointed that I did. Between the narrator and the story this was a great listen and I can’t wait (hopefully there is one )but can’t wait for the next sequel .. this was an enjoyable listen and it’s like humor with a little bit of scary but not really scary- if that makes sense .. highly recommended!!!

Good listen

My only beef is with the engineering. Many long pauses which should’ve been edited better, also a few double lines as well as the narrator coughing/clearing his throat and tripping over his tongue. Sometimes the sound would get softer then quieter, even during the same sentence. That said, the errors didn’t detract from the overall listen, I’ll be buying volume II

OK but...

I'm not sure if he was clinically insane or if all the things he was seeing and experiencing were real. I kept waiting for the big reveal but it never happened. Overall it was a good story. Creepy with a twilight zone feel. I look forward to the next volume and hopefully answers to why Jack never sleeps and what is it he didn't want to talk about with his doctor!
