Description from Amazon:
“Sir Derek Jacobi reads a collection of tales from the master of ghost stories, M. R. James, whose stories have for many years inspired the BBC’s A Ghost Story for Christmas TV adaptations. M. R. James was described as “a man who, in company with Sheridan le Fanu, is the best ghost-story writer England has ever produced”.
Story 1 was the best story of them all. I loved the atmosphere and how it lent itself to the spookiness. The ending was not what I expected.
I am recommending this book due to that first story. I don’t even recall the other stories. 🙁
