I've only listened to a handful of Audiobooks over the years, and this one ranks at the top.
The narrator in the Tell-Tale Heart, because this has always been a favorite story, and his character is performed exactly as I've always imagined.
Daniel Vimont's voice and delivery is one of eerie calm, which settles the listener into a relaxed and receptive state. However, beneath that calm is an almost sardonic joy in presenting the horrors of these classic tales, and Daniel uses this as a tool to transfix the listener. When just reading the book, one generally does not experience that kind of almost playful vocal performance in one's mind, especially in a horror story, which is very refreshing.
No. As a collection of short, atmospheric terror-tales, I found very entertaining and effective to listen to them over a period of days, during my evening commute from work as it was getting dark.
Well-Done Classic Horror
