There are six stories about a world we cannot explain. For example, a beautifui actress met a strange man, and finally, she found it very dangerous. I can't describe them in great detail, but the six stories are very scary and also teach us something important, just like lessons.
All stories were very scary, and after reading this book, I didn't want to take a bath by myself, like a children. But, this one is not just scary, but also teachs us something important. So I think it's a good idea to read these stories to children who don't listen to you. There are many different stories in this book, so they won't get bored. ( )

This is about very misterious tales.It's a collection of short stories.Most of them are a little frightening.
I think those stories are interesting and some of them are similar to Japanese old tales a little.So I felt nostalgia when I read it.But I don't like frightening stories.That's why I give this book three stars. ( )

Do you believe supernatural happenings?
There're 6 stories which are hard to explain.

I like and often read stories like these.
I think they're not horror stories but they are scarier than horror stories.
I like 4th one. It was scary and made me think about 'old things'. ( )

Even in this morden society, we have many things which we can't explain chemcally. There are 6 short stories in this book. Charactars in each stories have strange, misterious experences.
I shudder a little at some stories inthis book. However I could guess the ends of the other stories. I recomend the story titled "The Tea", a popular British writer became Japanese. ( )
