Editorial Reviews

Narrator Roy McMillan takes one of Stevenson's best horror stories and wraps his vocal cords around it with a reedy English accent that brings the dramatic sequences to a stunning conclusion. McMillan ably portrays the two friends who went to medical school together, studying under a doctor of questionable ethics. The duo's meeting, years later, in a bar leads to the story's rising tension and chilling conclusion. McMillan's clipped delivery and perfectly placed emphasis make this trip to the dark side a treat for horror fans and a good introduction for those not familiar with Stevenson's "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde."

Publisher's Summary

The Body Snatchers is one of Robert Louis Stevenson's most chilling tales. After many years, a chance encounter between two former medical students forces them to recall their sinister past and foul play that was better left buried. Perfect for long winter nights, these stories have been specially selected to create an atmosphere of fear and uncertainty. Read by Roy McMillan, with Naxos AudioBooks's trademark of carefully chosen music.

Good stories, poor quality audio

I like these stories - well written is you like historical fiction. The narrationa and audio quality are not good, however and that does take away from it.

Tense and thrilling

I really enjoyed this book, specifically "The Bottle Imp" story. I was engaged right to the end of that tale, I can't say I expected that ending though!
