On June 9, 1870, Dickens died of a stroke in Kent, England, leaving his final novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, unfinished.From AudioFile:
Getting scared around the campfire is the archetypal chilling experience. Listening to an audiobook doesn't offer quite the same ambiance, but at least you get a more evocative reading than you would from a bunk mate. In this case, you also get some less-familiar stories. We may all know Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Raven," but the five other pieces here--by Poe, M.R. James, Oscar Wilde, Ambrose Bierce, and Charles Dickens--will be new to most listeners. Liner notes include brief biographies of the authors, and the publishers have used music, rather than sound effects, to heighten the drama. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
