I enjoyed the collection very much.
I like their old spook stories.
Yes, I quite like Cathy Dobson's narration. It is the style female readers used when I was a child. This was the way I was taught to read to other people (in the 1950s).
I would set one and play it as I fell asleep every night.
I am not sure why the other listeners hated her delivery so much, since I enjoyed the experience thoroughly. I reckon it has to be some sort of style change that has happened over time. I suppose I simply don't understand how a lady is supposed to read a Victorian ghost story to people.
"difficult to listen to"
The reader was terrible. She read in such an affected way it was impossible to concentrate on the stories so I can't really comment on them. I am usually very impressed with the quality of readers but the opposite is the case here.
No, I'll just avoid anything that is read by her.
I have already said it all.
I don't know how someone so bad was allowed to be a reader.
These writers do not know the definition of 'haunting'. They are bleak bearing on almost dead.
I would not have cut anything out.... i would have put some semblense of haunting in...
