Summary

“Wake up! Wake up, there! Murder!” A hostler spits out these vehement words while he turbulently sleeps. He is haunted by a phantasm. It is a phantasm with a droop in the left eye, long flaxen hair, and a long buckhorn clasp knife.

A haunting Wilkie Collins short story

The presentation is actually half the length advertised! It's the complete story though!

I enjoyed this quick listen, the story and the narration. Hauntingly engaging. A great tale for cold, blustery autumn weekend listening.

Another found the presenter difficult, I didn't have a problem at all.

broken

What would have made The Dream Woman better?

So disappointing! I was thrilled to see a Wilkie Collins story I had never read before, and the narrator captured the perfect tone for Collins, but it becomes unlistenable as the file is corrupted. Apparently this was compiled from a serialized podcast, and the sections not only play out of order, but are jumbled on top of each other, randomly inserting snippets of the introduction.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

the story & narration are wonderful but the file is broken

Any additional comments?

I hope someone can fix the file of this delightful story.

Great story-poor recording

I love Wilkie Collins stories and this is right up there with the best. The narration is very good and keeps you entertained. However the recoding quality is very poor, sections repeat themselves for no apparent reason and makes the story hard to follow. Maybe another version??
