Definitely. I love a quick story and this is one of my favorite classic authors.
Guy de Maupassant is brilliant with irony and touches of horror. The way the story is told does a brilliant job of adding drama.
He has a fantastic tones and really adds levels to the story with his narration. Great pace, it is just quick enough to keep things moving and slow enough to add to the suspense.
Not extreme, but I did thoroughly enjoy listening to this short story.
Great little listen if you are looking for a quick fix. Terrific narration brings the classic story to vibrant life.
When I discovered Audible it was like discovering love :-) I love receiving codes and in return I post reviews. Wife, and mom of two,
I enjoyed the story but I must say it was way too short. I think if I had read the entire story and I'm sure there's a whole story. Anyway, it was a very good short story. It was a little spooky and supernatural. But, it was way too short and I don't really understand authors that put such short stories on audio. This book reminded me of a great campfire story.
The performance was great! I loved it and I even got goosebumps on my arms. It was a freaky, spooky performance. It was like hearing a scary story. The storyteller made sure you felt it and was spooked and David Stifel did an absolutely perfect job. I help authors all the time pick and choose narrators so I have added his name to my list. I definitely will be recommending this narrator. f your looking for a short campfire story this one is perfect and I recommend it for camping and telling a short scary story.
