a bit dated but enjoyable for a commute

it felt like it should have been set in the 50s but had a classic TZ feel. I enjoyed Stacey Keach and it passed the time on the train nicely

Weird Twist

Ok... Not great or surprising. Read in a very deadpan, monotone voice. Could have made this a great one !

Will Stick with Watching TZ not Reading It

Plot wasn't particularly engaging. Storyline not impressive. Lacked detail to paint a substantial picture. Non-climatic. Disappointing.

Eat Dirt

I love The Twilight Zone and will be getting the Volumes. Beaumont, Matheson and Serling, wrote the majority of the episodes. They were great writers. This story falls a little short. It is predictable and really not scary. The production and the narration are excellent and really enhance the experience. For the small amount of money it is, you might want to give it a try.

Great story, sound, and voice acting

the custom foley effects made the story extra special. It was fun to listen to and the story was great!

Disappointing

As a longtime fan of The Twilight Zone TV series and radio dramas in general, I was really looking forward to this. The performances were good, but the story didn't hold up. First, it was a 20-minute story stretched to fill 40 minutes, making for a very slow script. Secondly, there was not a single sympathetic character, leaving me in a hurry to get out of this house and this neighborhood as fast as possible. Thirdly, the ending just didn't go anywhere. I was hoping for a "juicy" revelation about the dirt, but there was nothing there. I'm glad this was free and no longer than it was; otherwise I would be asking for a refund. It certainly did nothing to encourage me to buy additional segments of this series.

Not a complete story

This round spent so much time showing how the main character was a cheapskate that it forgot about how to wrap up the ending. Not the Best Of The Twilight Zone by any means.

The twilight Zone

Throughly enjoyed this book. A penny-pincher tight fisted man. Great story, definitely kept me engaged. Even though I was listening to the story, I could definitely visualize it. Look forward to listening to my next Twilight Zone.
