Good Spooky Fun!

What did you love best about The Lighthouse (Afternoon Play)?

I enjoyed the old radio show style, and the twist on the traditional "haunted house" story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Both characters were well written and performed! Ifan Huw Dafydd's "Griffith" was every bit the pirate voiced, world weary seaman with a taste for vengeance. Paul Rhys was excellent as the conflicted young "Howell".

Which character – as performed by Paul Rhys – was your favorite?

Howell, of course. It was refreshing to enjoy him in a role that was NOT evil or creepy for a change!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes.The story is very eery and suspenseful, with a good plot twist! I have listened to it multiple times.

Any additional comments?

Great sound effects and attention to detail.
