Good Carnacki Story!

I haven't read many stories about Carnacki the Ghost Finder, but this one encouraged me to order the book in order to get more of his adventures! Carnacki's character is definitely unique in the way that he uses magic and occult knowledge in order to thwart the supernatural threats - not what I was expecting! David Davies did a good job in narrating this short story, and the price is right - check it out!

A Great Ghost Story.

Carnacki is a forgotten detective. He's just as smart and brave as Sherlock Holmes is. But instead of solving regular mysteries, he solves supernatural mysteries. Using some cool devices to help him in his cases. He doesn't have a sidekick like Dr Watson. But he tells how he solves his cases to the same group of people in every story as a a form of after dinner entrainment. One of them is the stories narrator who supposedly writing these stories down. Great little ghost story, plan to listen to more of Carnacki adventures soon.

Short, but a treat

I'd been looking for the Carnacki stories for a while on audible, and seeing as this is the only one currently available I feel perhaps I had to work with what I got, but not too bad if you ask me. The story is wonderful, Carnacki is rather like a supernatural Sherlock Holmes, and though the performance was a little lacking in quality that, along with the narration, gave it an air of an old radio horror anthology program. It's not terribly expensive at all, so even if you don't like it you won't waste much money, but I rather enjoyed it. A good start, but I would like to see more of the Carnacki stories available on audible in the future.

fireside tale...

Not a bad story at all and the narrator did a fair job of building suspense but not really winding it up as tight as it could have dong.

My only beef... a story less then an hour should not be a whole credit. Come on Audible!
