A most worthy offering

Would you consider the audio edition of HorrorBabble's Classic Horror: Volume 1 to be better than the print version?

I have read enough of the stories Mr. Gordon and Ms. Gill have done readings of, and I trust their felicity to the source material.

What other book might you compare HorrorBabble's Classic Horror: Volume 1 to and why?

Being a compilation of disparate classic horror stories, there is little comparison I can make.

Which character – as performed by Jennifer Gill and Ian Gordon – was your favorite?

The protagonist of The Tell-Tale Heart, voiced by Mr. Gordon, was suitably unhinged.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Here and there, yes.

Any additional comments?

The only fault I can find in this and their other compilation is the lack of story titles in the chapter listing.

High quality readings of these classic stories

Most people are familiar with the famous authors whose works of horror appear in this collection. Their stories are undeniably classics, and as such it is the quality of the narration that tends to become the prime factor in deciding whether to buy an audiobook of them. Well, I can definitely say you need look no further if you want professional and enthralling readings of these terrifying tales. Ian and Jennifer's eloquent vocal performances draw you in to the suspense and mystery of the works, making them seem fresh even if you've read or heard them before. I highly recommend this audiobook!

Stories aren't wine; they shouldn't be dry.

The title sums it up very nicely. These are classic horror stories read by the talented Mr. Gordon and Ms. Gill. They typically read in a dramatic rather than arid style, which I for one appreciate deeply. Their interpretation exhibits their own passion, stays faithful to the original work, and streamlines what otherwise might have been a relatively laborious read.

Exactly What I've Been Looking For!

A gift for classic horror lovers. Love these narrators! Excellent readings, good variety of classic stories, and the production is on point. I know H. P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe inside and out, but the other works were new to me. Hopefully we get a volume two. Highly recommended!
