Long slow stuff

What would have made Great Classic Ghost Stories better?

A better narrator and shorter livelier stories. Most of them drag on without much in the way of thrills and suspense.

How could the performance have been better?

A more sensitive voice responding like an actor would to the ups and downs of the text. It is a bit monotonous on top of the long and slow moving narratives.

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

Yeah, a few of the stories (there are so many of them) stand out as gripping. Most don't with the obvious exceptions of a few classic tales by M. R. James and the like.

Any additional comments?

Anthologies should concentrate on strong stories and not just rely on the genre branding on the assumption that this will please listeners.

different narrator needed

Stories were good, but a lot of the time couldn't hear them. Different narrator would be better
