Sorry, I don't like the stories and I gave up after reading 4 of them. I imagine something else when I hear "ghost story". For me it's something like a haunted house where strange things happen or people who see mysterious things that could be ghosts. The stories I've read in this book were different, which is not bad, but I didn't like them.

I'm afraid, I must give up, because the stories didn't come up to my expectations so far (they are rather old-fashioned). I hope, the banshees (Irish Ghost Stories) will do a better job...


Und wieder auf Reisen

Thanks for the book!

Journal Entry 9 by Urla from Galway, Co. Galway Ireland on Saturday, May 10, 2008
I liked the stories in this book, for I am very fond of these old-fashioned and often very British tales. My favourite was Algernon Blackwood's "The Wendigo", which reminded me of H.P. Lovecraft's or Robert E. Howard's "Cthulhu Mythos"-stories.

Find a more detailed review on my blog (but it's in German only).

I picked this up (together with its "book-mate") from the Post office on Monday
It seems just like my cup of tea; some of the stories are "old friends"; I will really enjoy reading... and re-reading them!

Well, as I expected: some "old friends", and some not so good...
My favourite, by far, is "The Crown Derby Plate", a traditional ghost story by Marjorie Bowen.
I also enjoyed "The Old Nurse s Story", by Mrs. Gaskell, and "Seaton s Aunt", by Walter de la Mare...
You see, I like my ghost stories traditional and old fashioned, if possible.
A good read, overall; it will soon be on its way to Pinkydinky.
Thanks for sharing...
