Critic Reviews

"The purpose of the novel is to ridicule the [then] popular tales of romance and terror...and to contrast these with the normal realities of life." (The Concise Oxford Companion to English Literature)

Lumley reads well though sound quality not great

Unfortunately the sound quality of this recording is not consistently clear. Otherwise Lumley reads excellently.
