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.
Loved the story, hated Perlman's reading.
Like the action-geezer, Professor Abraham Satrakian. That old guy rocks.
Ee- FRAME!! Never heard anyone mispronounce the name Ephraim before. Drove me nuts.
The name is great.
Clever story, liked it all very much. Do yourself a favor and listen to the last two installments after this one. Satisfying spin on some ancient theology. Another narrator reads them both -- and he pronounces the hero's name conventionally, if that matters to you.
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.
