    "amazing"
    What made the experience of listening to The Shadow the most enjoyable?

    Being able to close your eyes, use your imagination and let your mind create all the special effects is amazing.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    How the shadow is able to outsmart everyone is amazing, but you know in the end he will live

    "Shadow without Orson Welles"

    They were good, but I definitely like The Shadow much more with Orson Welles doing the part.

    "More fun with the Shadow."

    This is a great walk down memory lane. Sure the stories are pretty thin and the characters are two dimensional, but hey it's the SHADOW! No one better voiced the shadow than Orson Welles. This is like a really fun time capsule. I love listening to these when I have to drive at night. These are fun stories with all the comercials incuded which is a nice touch. If you like the old Shadow serials you will definitely enjoy this one.

    "Stupendous!!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Shadow the most enjoyable?

    The incredible writing of the plots and scripts along with the amazing voice actors made this an awsome listening experience, can't wait to hear more!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lamont Cranston/The Shadow is an amazingly well concieved character.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator adds a real flow to the show along with the included historical advertisements, a real classic mystery flavor ebs throughout each episode, he adds more than a real sense of story, and he has a natural way in which his tidbits of narration further the action without over taking the acting. Great narration!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Each episode made me want to hear another.


    Any additional comments?

    Awsome collection, I am glad I purchased it even thought I already owned a few of the episodes in single format, well worth it for the new content alone!

    "Fun for historical context, but very dated"

    The plot and character development are at the level of Scooby Doo and Inspector Gadget; there are many better-written modern stories out there. However, you can feel the innocence of the age in the writing (which comes with a solid dose of that age's sexism, unfortunately). What my wife and I found almost as interesting as the stories was that these recordings include the original radio advertisements, which is fascinating for anyone interested in media culture.

    "Memories"

    Not as good as I remember. It may have worked in days of radio but it does not work now. Do a prieview before you buy.
