Publisher's Summary

Algernon Blackwood was an English author who dealt primarily with the supernatural.

The Willows, his most celebrated story, was influenced heavily by Blackwood's own trips down the Danube River. It tells the story of two campers who pick the wrong place to sleep for the night, a place where another dimension impinges on our own.

great story, poor recording

This is one of my favorite stories. Blackwood does a great job describing the numinous and how an encounter with powerful and apathetic forces would be. The narration is good, but the recording has a cyclical softening that is annoying (to me; it's not a huge volume difference).

Adequate story, poor recording

I would recommend this audio book were it not for the poor audio recording. It was obviously not recorded in a professional sound booth because you can hear where the editor cut out the noise floor between words. It's fuzzy, slightly distorted and metallic sounding. I would recommend finding an alternate recording of this book because the story could have been entertaining without the distraction of the poor audio quality.
