Good stories ruined by bad reading,.

Would you listen to 20th Century Ghosts, Volume 1 again? Why?

No.

What didn’t you like about David Ledoux’s performance?

The reader is not reading a book. He is trying to dramatize it and doing a bad job at it. Overacting and badly delivered voices destroyed the book for me. That is a shame since I really liked the stories.<br/>

Only one ghost

the rest of the stories were more horror. They ended rather abruptly, so I'm only giving it two stars, sorry.
