Time Winters' smokey, versatile narration and quirky production; with sound effects and contemporaneous extracts of songs add an extra special dimension to the whole book. I was led into delving further on the internet in particular search of the story of Madame de Beauclair.
One last hing - Don't EVER go to sleep near a tree in Green Park!!!
The narrator was superb and the various stories were interesting. I wish I could spend time in London to investigate or at least visit some of these places mentioned in this book.
4/5 The West End Ghost Book: A Ghostly Gallivant Through London’s Haunted Heartland
Summary: Sort of a who’s who of creepy ghosts and where to find them in London.
- Kind of glad that I didn’t have this book before my trip to London.
- I heard the audio version. The narrator did a lovely job with the performance, but some of the titles were really hard to distinguish because of the sound effect used to make it even creepier.
- It’s like an occult history book. I found it interesting because it’s vastly different from my usual listening fare.
Conclusion: If you’re up for some ghosts, give this a go.
*I received a free audiobook. I chose to review it.
