Audible Editor Reviews

When the narrator of "The Horla" sees a ship floating on the Seine, he is filled with such joy that he waves to the vessel as it passes by. In a few days, however, he begins to feel ill and has nightmares that cause him a great deal of anxiety. He soon becomes convinced that there is some other being in the house with him, but what could it be? Guy de Maupassant cleverly uses the narrator's diary as device to chart his mounting distress, and Dermot Kerrigan gives a remarkable performance, capturing the narrator's madness with a paranoid ferocity.
