    One thought on “Caterpillars”

    1. I love the eeriness and the mystery in this story even though it was extremely short.I already hated insects, and especially caterpillars, before this. But now, my hate - and fear- of them is intensified.

    2. This story made my skin crawl. A man deals with mutated caterpillars, but then has the added problem of wondering if it was real or not.

    3. [image error]A man is terrorised by hideous apparitions in a haunted Italian villa. EF Benson's tale is read by Patrick Malahide. A very creepy tale.

    6. The caterpillars are pretty scaryarier than I would have guessed. I liked that it is set in a beautiful Italian villa. The mystery and tension keep you reading straight through to the end.
