Somewhat Creepy Story
Mildly disappointing, but at the same time expected. I can't say that I hated it.
I really enjoyed the way he read the story, for me it was what made the story creepy. Had I just read the book, I imagine I would have been more bored than anything.
Yes, and I would have because I listen to them at work, and it was a short one, but ended up only getting halfway through the first night.
I'm glad I listened to this narration by Paul Ansdell, as I don't think this book would have been half as scary if I'd read it myself. The tremors in his voice at select parts gave me chills!
The narrator did a wonderful job of keeping your attention throughout the entire story!
He has a sense of the excitement and he kept you engaged throughout the entire story!
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone!
I saw the trailer for the upcoming film and thought--why have I never heard of this
Both the author and the narrator combine talents in equal portion to create a classic tale of horror that pre-dates the sensibilities of Stephen King. This is clearly in the tradition of M.R. James and a direct literary descendant of Henry James's "Turn of the Screw."
I enjoyed the listen immensely and timed my listening to the week before Halloween. Perfect. I will look for more novels of this kind. It's been decades since I last read "Turn of the Screw." I may have to go back and give it another read.
I highly recommend "The Woman in Black." It's a book that demonstrates that violence and graphic gore does not have to be present to give the reader a fright.
This is so reminiscent of the Sherlock Holmes stories, with a touch of Edgar Allan Poe. I thoroughly enjoyed the third-person narrative and the suspense. Well worth listening to. I anticipate the movie that is coming out soon.
A classic, suspenseful ghost story. Eerie, moody and well-narrated. You could find a lot worse ways to spend four and half hours!
This was an audiobook I "couldn't put down." I'd been looking for a book in the style of "The Haunting of Hill House" or "Turn of the Screw," and this one very much fit the bill. The author completely captivates and holds your interest by providing just enough foreshadowing to tease you to the next section. The reader is exceptional - his approach perfectly suited to the tone of the book. Like the prior reviewer, however, I was disappointed in the ending. Nonetheless, I'd recommend the audio book and will look for more by this author.
Boring story. monotonous narrator. It took me 20 hours to get through the 4 hour story. It sent me to sleep.
Monotonous voice guaranteed to send you to sleep, dreary.
Waste of money
This short book was interesting held my attention but it is very sad....I guess I'm glad I read it...
