Good book

(5 stars)

Grest collection and well read

Very good collection

(5 stars)

Most of the stories were not familiar to me. A few were rather wry.It nice to have a traditional story telling style when I listen to relax, and these older writers use it. I liked very much the inclusion of the oriental story; it piqued my cultural interest. All of the readers were very good whether they were trying for a dramatic reading or a straight nicely inflected one.

Some great stories, mostly well read

(4 stars)

There is something for everybody in this collection of macabre tales. I thoroughly enjoyed this volume and will be on the next shortly. Some of my favourite readers make an appearance and some other great recordings too. A good choice for car journeys etc.

Definetly One of the Best.

(4.5 stars)

I just want to say thank you to the narrators of this book. I really liked the one called The Devil. So scary! I hope to see lots more!
