Midnight Terror Bites Again
You can not beat a good old fashioned horror story written during the Victorian era. Victorians loved to spook themselves, what with the candle lit shadows on the gory papared walls and with no TV or Radio to break the peaceful silence of a ticking clock each night giving them the perfect back drop for spooky feelings plus the style of heavy dark creepy bussled clothes they wore. These stories are definitely creepy and spooky but unfortunately it all boiled down to how good a narrator and their performance. Not all were up to spooky scratch and so some of these spooks just could not hit the nerve. I do wish Producers would give Top Priority to Professional Narrators SUITABLE to the Style of Genre they have to perform. After all THIS is what IT IS a PERFORMANCE but far too many narrators are not up to the job. They ruin great books with slopy banal reading
like it is a shopping list ! Banal and boring! Where is the feeling? The Performance ??
Yes I have recommended Midnight Terror to friends and highly recommend it to download as it is very good. But my recommendation has to come with warning about those sloppy narrators not up to the job. Some may not mind, others DO.
Those narrators who are up to their jobs do a wonderful spooky portrail of their characters taking you into the scary atmosphere. It is those who do not do their job who let the good ones down. Let EVERYONE down, Audible, Customers and the Books.
All in all yes, during the dark winter nights we always bring out this Midnight Terror, me and my husband like to sit in cosy candle light and listen to spooky shows. This is one we always listen to winter after winter. We just have to make sure we do not play the bad narrators, then we are not receiving the full benefit of the audiobook we have purchased.
Please Audible.uk Do what you can to ensure Professional Narrators Suitable to the Books they are being paid to Perform do thier JOB Right and the Books JUSTICE. We PAY GOOD HARD EARNED MONEY FOR THESE AUDIOBOOKS and therefore it is OWED TO YOUR LISTENERS TO BE GIVEN PROFESSIONAL NARRATORS. Thank you :) I love Midnight Terror and will listen year after year.
