Readers I'd like to hear again: The Lady & the Ghost, Spook House, The Terrible Old Man, The Angel of the Lord, Little Soldier, Jean Bouchon, The Unknown Quantity. The generous reader who reads The Facts in the Case of M. Valdumar has a nice voice, the quality of which is reduced by his keen narration style. The natural voice he uses introducing the story has a softer "gather 'round" quality. I'd rather hear the story in his natural style. But that's just one opinion of course.

Ugh this first reader...

(4 stars)

I won't give up on this but the first reader is killing me.... Just way to slow. I'm sure I would've liked the story but my attention can't deal
