The haunted library box set has a disclaimer at the beginning to warn the reader/listener that the book isn't very scary, and Willow Cross is right, I've had housemates more malevolent than the ghosts in The Haunted Library Boxset.
Although it's well written and charming, the fact that it's a compendium of short stories means there's no focus on one character as they're only ever recounting experiences. I found it difficult to stay engaged with the stories as they all blended into one.
Narration wise, Abby Elvridge has a wonderfully characterful and youthful voice which was a joy to listen to. Her characterisations were subtle and she has such a lively fun accent that you'll find yourself accidentally impersonating her mid story.

"Haunted Library Box set review"
Mainly the narration. The person narrating does an excellent job of it. The writing and content. Nice, suspenseful ghost story collection.
I received this audiobook from Audiobook book blast and author to give my unbiased review.
"Ghost Stories Safe for Kids and Puerile Adults"
Perfect for families or younger children who 'think' they like very scary stories. (There is a feeling of authenticity to some of the stories-primarily thanks to the narrator.) There are a few scenes where things get a little intense, which I think is perfect for the kids. For the kids of the 80's and 90's, you'll know what I mean when I say it isn't as scary as 'Are You Afraid of the Dark' but spooky enough to let them feel like they are being 'let in' on the horror genre.

I loved this collection of stories of actual events from Willow Cross. Being a huge fan of Willow's at first I wasn't sure I was going to like Abby Elvidge's narration as she didn't sound like I expected Willow would, but it only took about 5 minutes for her to win me over. Each one of these stories had me completely engrossed but I think the little girl in blue and the jar of pennies were my favorite. I really like the story with Annie and the wee-jee board but I don't remember what that one was called.
This book was very interesting, it kept me wanting to listen to more stories. I'd recommend it.
"Great collection of ghost stories"
I liked all the characters that Abby Elvidge performed, she is a natural storyteller!
This was a great collection of stories, and I would recommend this box set to anyone who likes ghost stories that are more realistic, not a bunch of Hollywood effects type stuff. There's nothing really horrifying to them, but just creepy enough to make you think. I really enjoyed them!
"Great Ghost tales.
I truly believe that ghosts exist.This library of tales just helps me verify that. These tales are to awesome to be made-up. The narrator did a very good job .
"Campfire and Sleep Over Ghost Stories"
yes I would
yes I would. This was not one of my favorites listens, however it was entertaining and would be good for family car trips, campfire tales and pre-teen sleep overs.
Yes it did.
Maybe a kids tv show. No thoughts about the stars.
This was a collection of supposedly true ghost stories which included weird and unexplained eerie happenings, ghostly apparitions and so forth...
It was an entertaining light listen and too scary. It would be great for campfire tales and pre-teen sleep overs.

"Entertaining Ghost Stories"
I really enjoyed this selection of ghost stories that are believed true at least by those telling them. I'm not sure I believe any of them happened but that's besides the point. they were portrayed as Sirius in a narrative sense and fleshed out more than most self accounts of hauntings. the performance of the stories were great as well with the narrator giving enough of the emotions of the people involved that it was similar to an old radio show. I received this in exchange for an honest review and urge anyone who likes a good ghost story too partake.
"Great creepy fun"
Heard about Willow Cross? Not me ether! Haunted Library Box Set is a fun box! Willow Cross is totally great creepy fun! Not only that: It is good! I highly recommend them and i think if they where not that different it would get full score! It was an entertaining and easy way to take a mental break, but it is not fantastic! I still recommend it a lot, and that is saying something!
3 hrs and 40 mins with Abby Elvidge is fun! Abby Elvidge has a voice that makes me think she is 20! Not meant negative, well almost: She sounds a bit to young almost! Still i would recommend it to people! 4 out of 5 is bloody good (Pun was meant), and i love to be surprised by people i never heard about before!
