Incredible Narration for M.R. James Classics!

I have found my new favourite narrator, Derek Jacobi! He's incredible at narrating these classic ghost stories by M.R. James - the way he acts out the conversations between characters is amazing! Here is a listing of the stories read:

A View From a Hill
A School Story
The Ash Tree
The Story of a Disappearance and an Appearance

If you're a fan of M.R. James or classic ghost stories, do not pass this one up! Get it now!

An (Almost) Excellent Introduction.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book, and volume two, are very good for the newcomer to M.R. James's work. The only downside to this anthology is perhaps the fact some of his best stories are not included. I would have loved to have heard Jacobi's take on "Casting The Runes".
