ww Jacobs at He's best

Peter Joyce has bought all of Jacobs stories to life... the recording is of bad quality which is a shame but the narrator makes up for it...... he draws you into another gone by era of east end dock life and brings the characters to life... it’s one of my favourite most listened to audible books.
If you like the short stories of Jacobs then you will be thrilled to listen to it being told properly.... Cathy Dobson try’s her best but there’s nothing as good as Peter Joyce...... Enjoy
