Publisher's Summary

Hear a collection of some of the spookiest tales ever written, chosen especially to be read aloud. Here are apparitions, mysterious deaths, and strange, inexplicable visions to chill the blood. The stories range from masters of the genre like Joseph Sheridan LeFanu and Ambrose Bierce, to classic writers such as Emile Zola and Rudyard Kipling. Some are frightening, some are poignant, and others leave a lingering taste of unease. The stories included are "Angeline, or the Haunted House" by Emile Zola, "The Moonlit Road" by Ambrose Bierce, "My Adventure in Norfolk" by A.J. Alan, "The Return of Imray" by Rudyard Kipling, "Mrs. Lunt" by Hugh Walpole, "The Open Window" by Saki, and Sheridan LeFanu's "An Account of Some Strange Disturbances in Aungier Street."

"Angeline, or the Haunted House" Translation ©1983 Clive Smith; (P) and ©1995 Penguin Books Ltd

    "penguin book of ghost stories"

    beware of downloading this book! the audio quality is almost nonexistent. Its as if the transfer of the audio is from worn out audio cassettes. It seems that the selection of stories is well chosen and presented, if only the audio would work correctly.

    "Inaudible audible format"

    I should have listened to the previous reviewer, but thought that maybe the content problems had been repaired in the years since his review. Wrong!

    Do not buy this book. It is barely audible, even with excellent earbuds.

    I hesitate to give this one star overall because I love Zola and Walpole, but sadly, I couldn't hear the stories. The narrators are very good --- I've listened to them before --- but couldn't hear them either.

    Audible, please make this title unavailable for sale until the content is remastered.
