Reviews

Well, wow!

- The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain

I agree with the previous reviewer that the narrator was not so great. But I did listen to the story all the way through, and got used to his voice and cadence. This is a gem of a story, and is very relatable, how a spirit of negativity can be contagious, but so can a spirit of compassion. Worth mustering through! At least read it yourself if you can't get used to the narrator!

I'm sure it was an interesting story, but the reader was so irritating I couldn't get past the first chapter. I even checked ahead to see if he read all the way through...he does.
