“The Monkey’s Paw” does not have “Green” in the title, Grey. You ruined the similarity between the covers, Grey. (I really enjoyed the reading, though.)

The ending is some cosmic horror. We'll never know what kind of abomination the wish entailed or was it rather the fear of the father of what it might be. The third wish must have sent his son to hell.

I recall the first time I learned of this classic tale while in elementary school during the late 1970’s. I can hear the memory of reels from the projector, the tinny one speaker audio. Thanks for the reading Grey.

“Dear monkey’s paw, for my first wish I would like a perfect understanding of all of the rules of what wishes are and are not allowed, as well as a set of guidelines on the proper grammar for how a wish should be formatted to receive the intended result while minimizing the consequences”

There is a claimed from particular research stated that story teller (especially from story book) tend to attract more audience (especially children) when he/she mimic (or make up) his voice to be of the character within the story , listeners on the other hand will somewhat tend to enjoy the story more and cling to it till the end as they can imagine the picture in their head more clearly. For Instance, In "The Fable of the Dragon-Tyrant" both audience and yourself see a clear picture through the video so the emotion tend to transfer more easily (both the sender and receiver). Sorry for the nerdy comment, Just a friendly suggestion from your fan, if you want to develop this kind of content in the future.

@R Nickerson That means not being able to die too. Humans will naturally evolve over decades but if he's stuck as an immortal young adult, he will miss out and be considered unnatural. There's also that thing where the sun grows and swallows the Earth with him in it.
