I was hoping this book was just like the old Alfred Hitchcock shows on TV or at least like the old Alfred Hitchcock books I'd read before. While this book was enjoyable to read and while some of the stories were very good, many of them were a bit disappointing. Overall, I got the impression that the Alfred Hitchcock Magazine stories, (from which this book is derived), weren't always quite as good as the old authentic Alfred Hitchcock ones. Since the magazine is an ongoing source of new stories and the original Alfred Hitchcock is done and gone, I guess we will have to settle for a decent but not as good imitation. Having said this, I did enjoy reading this and probably would buy it again.
