This is an unabridged audio recording of M R James' excellent ghost story "After Dark in the Playing Fields". Read by David Collings, this is sure to scare and delight in equal measure.

"David Collings reads wonderfully well." (The Observer)
It is enjoyable and atmospheric, giving a picture of what might be happening in school playing fields 'after dark'.
The character of the owl.
Excellent as always
To begin with it made me confused, I had to listen a couple of times to understand it better.
There is a lot unspoken in this ghost story, much is left to the imagination.
I bought this and a number of others by the same author hoping for some good old fashioned spooky stories. This was the shortest and therefore a taster.. Can you achieve an atmospheric spooky story in 9 minutes ? .... I think "No" is the answer. I only hope that the longer stories are much better than this. Fortunately 9 minutes is not too much time to waste....
Yes - I have bought a few in a 40% discount sale, and will give a longer, better known story a chance...
Nothing. I can hear that the narrator is skilled, and look forward to a more realistic tale.
I didn't realise owls could talk......
Thank-you for your refund policy Audible. Even if I had only lost about 50p I would have felt disappointed. I only hope the others are better.....
