A compelling book--frustrating narration

This is a solid collection of familiar classics and somewhat more obscure tales. Most are engaging and a few stand out as especially evocative, eerie, and gripping.

Dobson's narration is frustrating. She adopts a perhaps overly portentous voice that sounds like she's narrating a "This week on Random TV Show..." and doesn't really do accents. However, given that most of these stories are first person accounts, that didn't bother me as much as I expected. By the end, I didn't mind it. Still, it will be a deal breaker for many people, I suspect.

Overall, a worthy buy if using a monthly credit, especially given both the overall pricetag of this book and the wealth of content therein. But be sure to listen to the preview first.

Not recommended because of narrator

What disappointed you about Ghosts, Werewolves and Vampires?

I found Cathy Dobson's reading style extremely off-putting. Her enunciation is very mannered and unnatural. Perhaps her intention is to create an atmosphere of dread with these supernatural stories, but i really could not endure her voice. I should have returned the book
