Rudyard Kipling: great Victorian, great writer of empire, great man. From The Jungle Book to The Man Who Would Be King to a great and voluminous body of poetry, featuring works of the calibre of "If" and "On The Road To Mandalay", here shows us another facet of his truly incredible talent: ghost stories. Collected for your listening pleasure are a selection of chilling, disturbing, but always entertaining stories from a man at the top of his craft and always aware of his effect on the minds of us mere mortals.
But I couldn't honestly get through it. The stories were ones I was already familiar with, having read when I was younger, and the narrators brought nothing to this interpretation that reading the short stories, yourself, wouldn't bring. If you want a refresher on the tales, or want your children exposed to Kipling, and do not want to read the stories to them, yourself, this is a good choice.

These are gentle but well written tales set mainly in India. Great stories which are not gory but spine chilling none the less. Really well read and reader matches the timbre of stories perfectly.
