Really Good Fun
That the author tells the stories and lets the reader decide how credible they are.
Yes, but I was able to break it up into sections.
Obviously aimed at younger readers i.e. 8-14 years but I still found this enjoyable as an adult. Just wish it was longer.
"A fun listen"
Liked the history discussed in this book and the spiritualism movement of the 19th century. Interesting stories, some I have heard some I did not know.
"Other Reviewers Found this Chilling and Scary???"
Not unless I need something to put me to sleep.
My next listen will be a novel or anthology of novelists.
Beautiful lilting British (voice that sang me to sleep)
You couldn't do it, because many of the stories are between 1-3 minutes long.
I love a good ghost story, and if they are supposedly true, my interest is that much more piqued, unfortunately, this was a let down. There are many, many stories, all preceded by the narrator with a number, and as stated above between 1-3 minutes. I felt like we were gossiping rather than storytelling (did you hear?? oh my! let me tell you!).Pass. I won't be listening to any further additions to this series.
