Excellent MRJ readings - poor AUDIBLE quality

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The audio quality. Come on AUDIBLE (not the excellent Roy Macready) gives us decent quality audio.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ghost Stories - Volume Two?

The Tractate Middoth when Eldred is first seen.

What about Roy Macready’s performance did you like?

His characterisation and the different voices. Roy Macready's voice reminds me of Peter Tuddenham - perfect for MR James ghost stories

Did Ghost Stories - Volume Two inspire you to do anything?

Complain to AUDIBLE about the audio quality yet again.

Any additional comments?

Why is the audio ENHANCED AUDIBLE audio quality so poor? 64kbps and ~95MB for over 3 hours of audio is terrible.

Excellent reading

A superb narration of MRJ 's stories. Well worth a listen to even a casual fan of the masters.

Shocking delight!

I sincerely enjoy M. R. James' ghost stories. I read them over and over again! The narration is done skillfully and helps to create the scenes in my imagination
