One of my favorites :-)

(4 stars)

My favorite stories were Man-size in Marble (favorite reader too) and The Judge's House. This was my first Librivox experience and I still come back to it. I don't mind individual reader's accents or attempts, at least they're trying to make it interesting... But I can't give it 5 stars because s few of the stories' readers are much too quiet / volume changes low to loud too often to make the story enjoyable.

(2.5 stars)

Not a great, but ok as far as the story on empty house... had a really hard time with the narrator. Some pretty poor and unnecessary "accents" are attempted which sort of ruins it.

I have never had nor listened to audio books I am very pleased

(5 stars)

I do not have the patience I'm sorry to say to sit and read I'm very pleased to enjoy the book being read to me extraordinary 10 stars wouldn't be enough to describe my feeling thank you

Chilling yet Romantic

(5 stars)

Peter Yearsley has a deep, mysterious and perfectly fitting voice for this short ghost story! Please take less than 10 minutes from your day to enjoy it!

the judges house, the empty house and the rest

(5 stars)

great ghost stories. the judges house got me though. they're perfect to listen too when I'm out and about :)

Couldn't get into the stories

(1 stars)

Like someone said above, I couldn't get into the stories. Sorry narrators, but you did not in anyway make the stories interesting, just bland.

the judges housr

(4 stars)

I cant believe what happened to Malcolm malcolmson in the judges house. Bram stoker is a great author. had a tear in my eye :(

Couldn't get into these

(2 stars)

For the most part, the narratives were decent. I just couldn't get into any of these stories.
