Publisher's Summary

"For the love of God, cut off my head." The last request in Uncle Silas's will shocks everyone speechless, everyone except his favorite niece, Anna. More than death itself, the claustrophobic Silas fears a premature burial. Will her elders carry out his request? Anna is certain they will not. It's up to her to do the right thing, even if it is a bit grisly. Armed with butcher knife and candle, Anna heads for the crypt underneath the church in the dead of night. All does not go according to Anna's careful planning.
Step inside a dark story in the tradition of the penny dreadful, at times humorous and horrifying, but don't close the door behind you. Someone might lock you in.

Ideal listen for a dark and stormy night

Last request is a short story set in Victorian England. It centers around a young woman, Anna, in the care of her aunt and takes place shortly after her uncle's death. The story starts during the reading of his last will and testament where the uncle makes an unusual request. While all the other family members are aghast, she is determined to fulfill her beloved uncle's request.

Last Request: A Victorian is a very enjoyable short story. The narrator does a lovely job. It is an ideal story to listen to on a dark and stormy night.

This book was gifted to me by Audiobook Blast in exchange for an unbiased review.

Entertaining Gothic Tale

The book itself is entertaining, written well and I enjoyed the humorous slant on a rather grisly tale. I listened in one sitting. and would listem/read again.

The narration however is poor, as it's by an American narrator who is attempting a full story in a British accent with the result of detracting from a great short story, rather than adding to the experience. Reviews on audible.com are all highly complimentary of her but I'm afraid that listening as a Brit, it was a struggle.

I've rated the story as a 4, as it's good and I would recommend it but inclined to suggest as a read rather than listen.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
