Critic Reviews

"One of the most imaginative and original audiobook collections that I've heard....A glance at the list of authors was enough to have me grabbing this one from the shelf....The music and sound effects intensify the atmosphere and the readers are both distinguished in their own right and well matched to the stories." (The Times [London])

Best one of the Lot

I am always on the look out for old school ghost stories and have listened to most that Audible has to offer. This collection is by far my favorite. The tales are indeed classics and the narrators are talented.

Enjoy!

A real mix with some ghoulish delights.

This is an excellent mix of tales from the past two hundred years with authors from either side of the Atlantic. There are some real classics as well as some not so classic, but on the whole the genre allows true story tellers to excel.

traditional style

all wonderful stories and a good selection.
some of the preformed voice could have been better though I think this is because they are next to some excellent acting.
