Very creepy stories. Well done and well read.

If you are a fan of the detective story, this is a must listen. Excellent renditions of stories from the early days of detective stories.

First of all, I would like to say that had it not been for the alert lorry driver whom deemed it necessary to wake me with an airhorn that could be used to cloudbust, I would now be residing in a cemetary, hopefully mourned by my loved ones, such is the power of hypnotic sleep that this collection of stories possesses.
I like ghost stories. In fact, I particularly love the stories in this collection. The Signalman especially, I consider to be not only one of the most chilling ghost stories of all time, but one of the greatest short stories ever written.
However, when you have them read by a shower of narrators that obviously do not know their text, nor care for it in any way, you end up with an interminable eleven or so hours of utter boredom that could send an amphetamine addict to sleep.
The best simile I can possibly use is that it's like having Dickens read to you by Stephen Hawking. Flat, uninterested, robotic drivel spews forth for hour upon hour, until you finally lose the will to live and attempt suicide on a busy main road.
Hopefully, a lorry driver's airhorn will come to your aid, otherwise you may end up a ghost yourself, your death may become a ghost story and one of these narrators may end up reading it as an audiobook.
