The Room in the Tower, and Other Stories

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.7 stars; 12 reviews)

These stories have been written in the hopes of giving some pleasant qualms to their reader, if by chance, anyone be occupying in their perusal a leisure half-hour before he goes to bed when the night and the house are still, he may perchance cast an occasional glance into the corners and dark places of the room where he sits, to make sure that nothing unusual lurks in the shadow. For this is the avowed object of ghost stories and such tales as deal with the dim unseen forces which occasionally and perturbingly make themselves manifest. The author therefore fervently wishes his readers a few uncomfortable moments. Preface - by E.F. Benson (8 hr 18 min)

good collection but...

(3.5 stars)

unfortunately one reader rendered her story in such a manner as to make it virtually unintelligible, and was reading one of the longer stories of the collection.. I very much enjoyed the rest of it.
