Brief, slightly creepy stories from the town, some referencing Stoker's inspirations, are slightly marred by unfortunate sound effects and story headers. Other than those annoyances, the narration is largely well done. The audiobook is priced appropriately for its short running time.

4/5 The Whitby Ghost Book
Summary: A peek into the supernatural goings on in Whitby, England.
- Writing and narration are both good, though I could do without the sound effects. Sometimes they help, but in this case, they just made some sections hard to hear.
- Cover’s pretty creepy, but it fits the mood nicely.
- A nice companion piece to the West End Ghost Book (though I think this one was actually the first book).
Conclusion: Historical supernatural accounts. Not exactly sure what to call them.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Whitby Ghost Book to be better than the print version?
I thoroughly enjoyed the narrators voice. Deep and Vincent Price-ish, with a delivery which was paced just right for the book.
What did you like best about this story?
This is a collection of ghost stories taken from events and folklore in and around Whitby. I am familiar with the Authors other books and this work expanded on those beautifully. However this is not just a book for Whitby lovers, there is a wealth of Hell-hounds, Grims, Wafts and all things supernatural to tantalize.
What about Time Winters’s performance did you like?
Time added a lot of variety to this book, quirky accents and lovely pace.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I was interested in the custom that young ladies performed to see their future husband...interesting use of a cake and stocking...
Any additional comments?
A good way to spend just over two hours!
