Fifty terrifying short stories from the great classic horror writers:
And 20 more terrifying tales….< /p>
Public Domain (P)2015 Red Door Audiobooks
The production company obviously had Ms. Dobson read as many Victorian and Edwardian short stories as possible. She probably did most of these recording sessions 10 years ago.
** Since then, each recorded story is being used repeatedly, spread out across multiple collections of audiobooks such as this one . **
Therefore, be careful which one you pick. I have several of the earlier audiobooks. Frankly, it's insulting: the repetition of the same recordings, all used to "pad" the majority of what you will find here, and in the many collections read by Ms. Dobson. ( I wonder if she actually owns the production content herself.... If so, I'm in the wrong business! )
The Narrator sounded like the stand-in for Esmerelda on Bewitched, or some self indulgent acting teacher from the 20s. Actually painful to listen to.
Couldn't say, the narration kept yanking me out of the stories
Yes right after I sign up for a mugging
Regret for purchasing it
My own fault. I must remember to listen to samples before buying. In the hands of another narrator this could have been a great collection
The stories were good, many were actually great. But the narrator? Please do yourself a favor and listen to a preview. Hear that? That is not the narrator affecting her voice for key moments in the story. That is her constant cadence. It never changes. Never.
Wish I could leave 0 stars.
The reader is horrible, I can't stand the British accent and the stories are really bad too so you should look at the ratings first. it didn't get such a low score by accident. This is just a waist of time and money.
The stories were... good? I think. I could not get passed the narrator. The senseless addition of inflection and drawn-out syllables made it nearly impossible to listen to. I would love to see this collection done again with a different narrator.
"Very bad narratiooooonnnnnnn"
Can audio books be patched like software? Seriously, who choose this narrator? I don't know if the stories are any good because she takes me out of it so much I couldn't finish. I seriously recommend avoiding this and use your credits on something else.
Not from this narrator.
By using a different narrator.
I don't know, I couldn't stand listening to the narrator after 10 minutes so I gave up listening.
Never use this person again...I don't know what she's like as a human being, she could be the nicest person in the world but she seriously needs to find a new line of work
