A Lovely Thrill

I've listened to most every M.R. James story a hundred times and this is no exception. What it lacks in direct chills it makes up for in the intruiging backstory of the premise and the overall prose. James always has a great way of writing dialogue and it's shown when read aloud.

Masterful use of English

There's nothing like visiting olde England with her proper ways and dignified manner. M.R.James is a genius at putting the customs of the academics and through Mr. Collings their "just so" proper linguistics and elocution together with masterful regional dialects woven subtlety with the perfect amount of mystery and gothic spookiness the result is a delightful holiday in horror.
