What the Critics Say

"As one of the basic prototypes of what has come to be called Pop Art, the Shadow is unique and irreplaceable, a legend in his own time. A classic character who looms slouch hat and shoulders above all others of his kind, he is an inevitable as a guilty conscience, an unseen power that awakens within all of us our most deep-rooted fears of mortal retribution. There has never been a force quite like him." (Jim Harmon, The Great Radio Heroes)

    Where does The Death House Rescue rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Like all the Dark shadow audio books hearing some of the old commercials and the way the actors present their lines is a bit hokey but fun to listen to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Orson Welles..My favoriate because he fits the charactor so well.

    "The Shadow"

    Great old time radio show. But Audible.com needs to place each Shadow episode in it's correct order when they sell them in a volume. Buy the show's correct date as they aired. There are a lot of people who love old time radio, and for myself, placing each show by the right date is important(Audible.com).
