    This is one of the least atmospheric ghost stories I have ever read Psychic detective Thomas Carnacki investigates Gannington Manor in Ireland The mansion has been empty for years and is rumoured to be haunted Blood is said to drip from the ceiling and the bodies of two men have been found within, neither with any visible cause of death Perhaps they were frightened to death I did not enjoy the narrator I found his voice monotonous which did not enhance the story in any way.

    This novel is literally just under 50 minutes long, on audiobook The narration is done by David Ian Davies.What a strange, and short little novel I wish it were longer.3 stars

    I started this book hoping for a creepy October read Got the audiobook from the library via Overdrive and it takes 50 mins to complete I took some time to get used to the narrator s voice due to the thick accent and grating voice It s a classic haunted mansion tale While the beginning is promising and manages to convey a gothic, eerie sense of horror, I thought that the ending was anticlimactic Rating 2.5 stars

    This is a short little gothic mystery set in a creepy, creepy haunted castle where people vanish An old school private eye is hired to suss out the truth behind the vanishings and killings and randomly dripping blood that appears after dark.And because it is such a short little piece of fiction, I can t say anywithout totally spoilering the heck out of the story.I listened to this on audiobook, grabbed from the library website without noticing how short it was The narrator had an accent This is a short little gothic mystery set in a creepy, creepy haunted castle where people vanish An old school private eye is hired to suss out the truth behind the vanishings and killings and randomly dripping blood that appears after dark.And because it is such a short little piece of fiction, I can t say anywithout totally spoilering the heck out of the story.I listened to this on audiobook, grabbed from the library website without noticing how short it was The narrator had an accent that, while true to the setting of the book, was a bit distracting There were a couple of places where I skipped backwards to re listen to a sentence or two because it sounded a bit jumbled to my north american ears.It s a good read for a dark and stormy night, curled up with your cat on your lap Just realize you ll finish it before your tea gets cold

    There s a skeptic in some of us that likes to explain away our fears Perhaps the howling really was just the wind, or there really is a logical reason for fill in the blank Then again, there also is a tendency to leap to the supernatural in order to explain something thatseemsextraordinary Human nature likes to stick to its superstitions and to our hopes that our religious beliefs will protect us from the unseen evil that exists in the world This little ghost story exploits all o There s a skeptic in some of us that likes to explain away our fears Perhaps the howling really was just the wind, or there really is a logical reason for fill in the blank Then again, there also is a tendency to leap to the supernatural in order to explain something thatseemsextraordinary Human nature likes to stick to its superstitions and to our hopes that our religious beliefs will protect us from the unseen evil that exists in the world This little ghost story exploits all of that Nothing is what it seems It was interesting and refreshingly different although published in 1910 I liked it

    this story was great til the end I didn t like the ending but it was just my personal taste, not because it was wrote bad or anything I don t know what year this was wrote but it s crazy how modern it is it could have been wrote last week history repeating itself seems so I give mr hodgson 5 stars on building suspense bravo this story is definitely worth reading, I just wished it had ended differently.
