A collection of 50 of the world's great creepy stories. "Creepy" does not necessarily mean ghost or horror stories but rather stories that literally make our flesh creep by shaking our false sense of security and comprehension of the world.

There is a distinct change in Cathy Dobson's style in this one: the cockney accent has been reined in a great deal, to the point of being eliminated, and the vowels are now crystal clear. I'm far from anti cockney, and love that accent, but it does not suit upper class or American mystery stories. Now in this new approach, her driving, slightly wavering voice works really well in keeping the attention and driving the plot forward. It creates a mood of tension and suspense well suited to the stories. She has become one of my favourite narrators.
The variety and sheer number of names,
Anything by W W Jacobs, Lovecraft, Howard, and so forth
Too many to name
This narrator has been sadly criticised by me in other reviews and many others; but some of us have come to see she is brilliant.
Of all the hundreds of audio books I have listened to, I've never felt the need to leave a review - good or bad - until now .
The intonation of the narrator made this reading unlistenable .
Some of these stories are classics which I would of loved to hear but at this price too the publishers should be ashamed .
What were they thinking !
