The eerie in the everyday

Where does A Creepy Company rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Among the top audiobooks.


What other book might you compare A Creepy Company to, and why?

Joan Aiken stands on her own. She uses very simple language but somehow manages to be poetic. What I like best about her stories are the very ordinary settings and the way these make the supernatural elements all the more magical. I suppose in that, I might compare her to JK Rowling. For the subtle haunting quality, I might compare her to E.F. Benson.


What about Eve Karpf’s performance did you like?

I thought she was an excellent narrator, in that I never noticed her. She was especially good at voices; she just became the character.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not really. It was beautiful, haunting; strangely comforting in the way that good ghost stories are.
