Far too much like M R James, Oh Whistle & I'l Come .. so makes this not 'original' but 'based on' other peoples works.
Not particularly scary nor very much atmosphere. Quite disappointing.
New to E.F.Benson, but a great lover of ghost stories, I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It has echos of 'Oh Whistle and I'll come to you' by M.R. James and others but adequately holds its own.
Set in the Swiss Alps, it tells the story of a gentleman staying in a hotel who is snowed in while heavy storms set in. For 12 francs our gentleman finds himself in a huge room which actually has two beds in it, a luxury indeed! What follows is a series of impressions, dreams, half seen visions and sounds as if another guest may be inhabiting the room, in the other bed...
Brilliantly narrated by Greg Wagland, this is a charming tale, containing suitable spine-chilling moments. Highly recommended.
