Better than Volume 1

What can I say - if you like M.R. James then these are superb adaptations. Derek Jacobi is the perfect voice to inhabit the world and his measured delivery is engaging and well suited to the 'academic' style M.R. James so often writes in.

I actually prefer this volume to the first, mainly because of the fantastically creepy 'A Warning To The Curious' which more than justifies giving this a listen on it's own. If I have any criticisms then they are those that can be levelled at all M.R. James material - repeated stories, styles and characters. That said, as an adaptation I cannot fault it.

One of those audiobooks I can certainly imagine myself returning to time and time again.

Ghost Stories Beautifully Crafted to haunt you

Jacobi's superb supple voice & minute inflections are in perfect pitch for these old fashioned, disturbingly ambiguous ghost stories. Once encountered I felt the spectral entities remained nearby long after I had ceased reading about their lives, their deaths; they had been imprisoned created too often by Faustian pacts. How can they be set free from their horrible captivity, behind the bars of their often self inflicted and last remaining Too often the-eerily suggested entities feel too close to many of us.
