Reviews

Third listen-Great Stories


(5 stars)

Wonderful stand-alone stories about a clergyman who experiences the super natural. They are “pleasant” ghost stories (not horrific) and I wouldn’t mind sharing them with school-age children.

not scary, but highly enjoyable


(4.5 stars)

All readers do a great job, but be ready to adjust volume (and sometimes playback speed) when readers change.
