Choice of stories needs sorting

The narrations and slight background music/effects are wonderful. My disappointment is with the choice of stories. I had read/listened to most of these before encountering this anthology but that was not a deal-breaker in itself. One was absurdly short and another was a comedy. So in all the experience wasn’t the thrill I had anticipated. Then again, if terrific narration is all you are looking for - which admittedly in most instances is the most essential component of an audiobook of my choosing - don’t hesitate. I would certainly give the second collection of these Victorian anthologies a listen if only the selection of stories is more thrilling or chilling as advertised, whilst keeping the narrative quality at this stellar level.

You can't beat the classics

Nobody wrote horror quite like the Victorians. It's the kind of fear that is so intangible - you cannot banish it if you tried. Can't complain about the narration either. Only wished it was longer!
