Great Classic Ghost Stories with a Good Narrator!

I love classic ghost stories, and this collection does not dissapoint! Richard Pasco does a good job narrating, acting out voices very well. One story has him doing a creepy raspy voice, which I thought fit the character perfectly. If you like these old ghost stories like I do, definitely purchase this collection - there's a good variety of different authors and something to satisfy everyone's tastes. Highly recommended - get this one!

Cracking short stories well read

If you could sum up Classic Ghost Stories 1 in three words, what would they be?

Well read and concise range of chilling classic ghost stories. Not too gory just creepy and spine chilling.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Classic Ghost Stories 1?

I loved the Saki tale which was great antidote to the creepy tales.

What does Richard Pasco bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

A great narrator can make or break a reading. Mr Pasco is a A1 narrator and will look out for other readings by him.

Enjoyable

Bought for my husband who enjoys short ghost stories. He thoroughly enjoyed these and he looked forward to listening to them before bed every evening. Also kept him quiet while I was doing my jigsaws .....so can't complain.

Narration was great too!
