Cute! I would purchase further volumes

If you could sum up Great Classic Ghost Stories in three words, what would they be?

fun, entertaining, road trip worthy

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

There were a lot of cute spooky stories. You're probably not going to walk away from this read suffering from nightmares or actually scared but I thought it was a fun spooky narrative for a road trip. I would buy other volumes.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Brings you back to campfires and smores. A fun, nostalgic narrative.

Any additional comments?

very cute, I would repurchase this or future volumes.

Boo

Not my taste in narrators ...if you truly want fantastic ghost stories look to YouTube-horror and find Peter Yearsly reading M.R. James....the gold standard in narration

Very badly read

These stories are hard to judge when they are read so very badly with an awful intonation which tramples over the flow of the prose and gets to be very stilted and dreary. I am listening to it for a second time and I doubt I will be able to stomach the whole book.

different narrator needed

Stories were good, but a lot of the time couldn't hear them. Different narrator would be better
