Would you consider the audio edition of Echoes from the Macabre to be better than the print version?
I bought this mainly for one story, The Birds. I had the audio version of this on cassette and it had eventually fallen apart. This was the version I had and this reader is amazing. So this review will be mainly on the one story, although all the stories are good, this is my favorite.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Echoes from the Macabre?
Nat's discovery of the death of his neighbors and employers the Triggs. Very creepy and quite unforgetable.
Have you listened to any of Valentine Dyall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
IT SCARED THE HELL OUT OF ME!!!! The first time I listened to this, I was driving to Chicago alone, late at night. In the dark. No lights. Again, ALONE!!! Need I say more?
Any additional comments?
This is a collection of DuMaurier's lesser known stories. It should be heard or read,these should never be forgotten. It won't be by me, that's for sure.

This book is narrated superbly by valentine dyall. Anyone familiar with the bbc radio series "appointment with fear" will recognise his oaken tones & cut glass vowels. The prose, being du Maurier is practically flawless and this would have been a 5 star review had the book contained all of the stories listed in the publisher's description. The printed volume contains 9 stories, the audiobook contains 5. "The pool", "the apple tree", "the blue lenses" & "the chamois" are all omitted. This is therefore not an unabridged recording as stated. Very disappointing for that reason.

Interesting, though I enjoyed the stories to variable extent. Narrator was fine - not exceptional, but solid. Not as good as her longer work, but worth checking out.
