Audible Editor Reviews

Getting scared around the campfire is the archetypal chilling experience. Listening to an audiobook doesn't offer quite the same ambiance, but at least you get a more evocative narration than you would from a bunk mate. In this case, you also get some less-familiar stories. We may all know Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Raven," but the five other pieces here - by Poe, M.R. James, Oscar Wilde, Ambrose Bierce, and Charles Dickens - will be new to most listeners. The publishers use music, rather than sound effects, to heighten the drama.

Publisher's Summary

A chilling collection of ghost stories containing Rats by MR James, The Raven and Berenice by Edgar Allan Poe, The Birthday of the Infanta by Oscar Wilde, A Tough Tussle by Ambrose Bierce and The Signalman by Charles Dickens. In Rats, Mr Thompson comes to regret his decision to investigate a locked room in a country inn, and in The Signalman, the subject of the story is haunted by ghostly appearances that always precede tragic events.

    "good reader & stories; lousy production"

    The stories in the collection are by classic authors, so may seem tame to readers used to Stephen King-ish stories. But they are classic for a reason; they're good. The reader does a good job with them & "The Raven" is especially well rendered. However. The producers just HAD to include the smarmy hyper-melodramatic music before, & sometimes during, each story --sometimes even while the reader is reading. A part of one story is quite drowned out by the stupid music. It's as if they needed to pad out the time by including lousy noise. I would have given it a 4 star rating if not for the music.
