    Description

    A girl comes of age with a vengeance - and help from a friend - in a tale of unnerving suspense from National Book Award winner and literary master Joyce Carol Oates.

    Bad things have been happening since Mia began to mature. Her dad left. Boys at school can’t keep their hands to themselves. A lecherous stepfather has moved in. Her only refuge is an abandoned lot on her suburban cul-de-sac, crawling with feral felines - one of which follows Mia home. Ghostly white and affectionate, she is Mia’s new companion and - as Mia’s tormenters will soon discover - her fierce protector.

    Joyce Carol Oates’s Miao Dao is part of Dark Corners, a collection of seven heart-stopping short stories by bestselling authors who give you so many new reasons to be afraid. Each story can be read in a single sitting. Or, if you have the nerve, you can listen all by yourself in the dark.

    Not scary, not great reading.

    I’ll just be the one to say it, I cannot stand the way the author pronounces “feral cat” It’s not “FEARal”, it’s “FEHRal”. It may sound picky, but it made me cringe. The story itself is pretty cringeworthy.

    Not scary

    First, again the narrator ruined what little good was in this book, second it wasn't scary. It's not terrible, but it doesn't fit in with the theme of the book.

    Just NO

    This book started out very slow but seemed to get even slower as the story progressed. The book was absent of any suspense or intrigue. Overall the book was 2hrs. 30 min., but seemed it would never end and I only listened in hope that something would happen to validate the time spent. But I gambled and lost... Terrible

    boarder line

    The core of the story was good, nice ending w a twist, but it took way too long to get where it was going.

    Silly story

    I got this because of the reviews, and regret it. It’s not scary, it’s just cringe inducing. Waste of time.

    Read it, don't listen

    The narrator is overly breathy and doesn't know how to pronouce 'feral '. I had to stop and just read the story.

    mispronunciation of the word feral was distracting

    I t was good not great. Not an ordinary story, but somewhat predictable. Good escape reading.

    Narration

    Some parts of narration were hard to look passed. Feral is pronounced “fair-al” not “fear-al”

    Scary

    Heartbreaking tale of a childhood shattered. Joyce Carol Oates always makes me think, and I love that.

    Yikes

    It’s just so bad. The narration was clipped at the ends so harshly that it almost sounds like AI reading instead of a person.
