    These five chilling tales make perfect night time listening - and, for the fearful, can be heard in a group, rather than experienced as solo bedtime reading. Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins, W. L. George, A. M. Burrage, and Guy de Maupassant provide the terrifying text; Ian Holm and Julie Peasgood provide the spoken spooks.

    "Climax of The Waxworks is spoiled"
    Overall

    The recording is defective. It is garbled just at the climactic moment of the short story "The Waxworks". A great pity, since the story is very creepy. I would have purchased one of the other spook story collections had I realized this one was ruined.

    Other than that, it is a pip. I greatly enjoy having a story read by Ian Holm.

    When a petty thief falls though a glass roof in his attempt to escape from the police, what should have been the death of him marks the beginning of a while new life. After his broken body is reconstructed by an ambitious young doctor, he is released from prison, and, with the help of Victorian London's extensive sewer system, he becomes the most elusive burglar in the city.

    Adira says: "Montmorency"
    "Splendid! Can't wait for the next three books!"
    Overall

    Montmorency, read by Stephen Fry is simply wonderful. I must get the second book, Montmorency on the Rocks, also read by Stephen Fry. It is carried by the British Audible, but not by Audible.com (USA) as of yet.
    I hope Audible will pay Mr. Fry to read the third and fourth books in the series.
