I was surprised with this audiobook - it has a good variety of stories, some of which I haven't "read" before! I was worried about the narration, as there are quite a few voice actors reading the stories, but I was very impressed with the quality! Great narration on all of the stories. The ones that really stood out for me were "The Judge's House", "The Haunted Doll's House", "The Story of the Green House, Wallington" and "The Chippendale Mirror". Some of the stories I didn't care for, but most were hits so I consider it a good purchase. Oh, and no "The Signalman"!!!! WOO! :-)
These stories were more fun than seriously creepy. They were probably pretty creepy in their time, though. The characters and situations are all pretty stock by present day standards.
