    "Weird accent"

    The sample gave me the impression this was read by a British actor but the whole story was read by an American, at high speed, and with the oddest idea of what Scots sound like... Not quite Hound of the Baskervilles, but mildly entertaining way to spend an hour.

    I like things different. Challenging, unconventional, thought-provoking. Everything is on a spectrum, which makes life interesting.

    Story
    "Wuthering Heights goes to sea."
    What did you like most about The Captain of the Pole Star?

    The story was enjoyable and not as predicted on purchasing the title.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Captain of the Pole Star?

    The ending does come to mind in colour more than the rest of the story.


    What does B. J. Harrison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The narration is very good and individual characters played well.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A Ghostly love story.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a short nautical story in the essence of the great classic., 'Wuthering Heights. The dark young captain is depicted as a character very like Heathcliffe.

    Story
    "Conan Doyle wrote more than Mr. Holmes."

    The story of ghostly happenings on a whaling ship is eerie and atmospheric. The mysterious Captain of the Pole Star is a hypnotic character. The Doctor narrator, ( Hmmm, another Doctor narrator?) is in an excellent position to tell the story from all perspectives.
    The story is first rate, the narration by BJ Harrison is better than some of his books and his dialects were very good.
    All in all a great listen!

    Old school horror done right. It was creepy but not really scary, basically a ghost story.
