Wonderful Ghost Story

M.R. James is my favorite ghost story writer of all time, and I have read all his ghost stories over and over, but I never really thought much of this one till I bought this recording of it and listened to it. James first wrote these stories to be read aloud and I think that this one does not really achieve its full effect until you experience it this way. The reader does a great job here; and the story itself, with it's lighthearted start of dry, somewhat macabre British public school humor leaves one totally unprepared for the gradually creeping advance of true horror that builds almost imperceptibly to a magnificently hair-raising climax that NEVER fails to turn my blood to ice and bring a tear to my eye. I think it is one of the best ghost stories ever written, (though persons who are sensitive about children in ghost stories might want to avoid it.) and I highly, HIGHLY recommend this recording of it. Utterly FAB!!!
