Classic comedic Oscar Wilde

I was slightly surprised to realise that it was more of a comedy than a ghost story but it still highlights the classic style of Oscar Wilde. Lots of tongue and cheek commentary on aristocracy as well as the ghost genre. The narrator's accent was also interesting - a mix between American and English. A pleasant short story.

Poorly read

Mr. Harrison should not be allowed to attempt British accents. He seems convinced he's really good at them but he really is misleading himself. This is a fun, classic Wilde story and shows the writer's innate wit but the voice acting is very distracting and takes away the enjoyment of listening to it.
