Audible Editor Reviews

It is not clear if a "bitter poor and bitter ugly" fisherman finds happiness thanks to his supernatural visitor, but after an ocean voyage and communion with the dead, he is able to attract an Earl’s daughter as his wife. By turns melancholy and haunting, Roy McMillan performs this quirky, eerie fable from Scottish novelist, poet, essayist, and travel writer Robert Louis Stevenson, best known for novels such as Treasure Island, and Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. This selection is from The Body Snatchers and Other Stories collection.
