Superb!

One of M.R. James’s best ghost stories, full of the kind of expert historical detail and a subsequent verisimilitude that, when combined with just the one expertly delivered and applied supernatural brush stroke make of him second only to the great Dickens and to his Anglo-American namesake Henry James. And David Collins’ virtuoso narration, always reliable, completes the effect. Truly flawless.

CREEPY

Creepy near the end but not one of my favourite M R James and I like a quite a lot of his works. This maybe one I need to listen to a few times then it might grow on me, like one of MRJ’s creepy vines.
