Paranormal Encounters Relating to Valentines Day

This is another fascinating collection of strange and unusual tales related to Valentine's Day. Author Tom Slemen's meticulous research and gifted storytelling skills are on display here. A few of the tales were published in other editions of his works. Some are heartbreaking, heartwarming, some chilling and others just strange and unusual. I read this book using immersion reading while listening to the audiobook. The narrator, Norman Giligan was wonderful, imparting his natural British accent to this great collection of tales. He should narrate all of the books.

A word about the content

Would you try another book written by Tom Slemen or narrated by Norman Gilligan?

Just because it was not for me doesn't mean others wont enjoy the element of "True" ghost stories. I prefer stories with more humour and action to balance the death and realism of life.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Personally I found the narration flat. I realise that voices are a very personal thing and that a narrator who would suit one listener would drive another listener to the brink or to sleep.

Any additional comments?

My strongest feeling about this collection is that it should have a warning about the disturbing content. The first story has a brutal rape described in detail. At least one later story features the suicide of a young girl. Yet another features the appalling murder of a new born baby. I know that not everyone will be troubled by these, as these stories have a fictional aspect and are ghost stories but I think its worth mentioning.
