These seven ghost stories were written specially for Naxos AudioBooks, and the production is first-class. Excellent writing and perfect narrations are a common thread among the tales of historical ghosts, an accident-prone ghost, and spirits from ancient Egypt. Sean Barrett offers a perfectly tuned narration of "The Clumsy Ghost." Gorgeous classical music adds to the atmosphere and presentation. In "Unable To Connect," Anne-Marie Piazza portrays a girl whose dying mother tries to reach her on a phone with a ringtone from Swan Lake. The music adds to the heartbreak. Each casting is sublime, all dialogue is smooth and clear, and the narrators are memorable. The stories, which also touch on bravery and lost opportunity, are ideal for family listening.
In this entertaining anthology of seven new ghost stories, written especially for Naxos AudioBooks, we meet all kinds of phantoms in different situations: a kind-hearted but accident-prone spectre unwittingly upsetting a family home, as well as ghosts in ancient Egypt, on board a pirate ship, and in a Newcastle swimming pool. Engaging and slightly sinister, The Clumsy Ghost and Other Spooky Tales is a delightful shiver for all the family.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
