    1. Parkins, who very much dislikes being questioned about it, did once describe something of it in my hearing, and I gathered that what he chiefly remembers about it is a horrible, an intensely horrible, face of crumpled linen What expression he read upon it he could not or would not tell, but that the fear of it went nigh to maddening him is certain Illustration by James McBrydeI m sure everyone has woken in the middle of the night and had a fright from something that in uncertain light and variou [...]

Collection of 12 horror short stories from M.R James.This isn t a horror we are used to nowadays, it relies on building a creepy atmosphere than on story It s purposely vague and mysterious M.R James was late 19th, early 20th century British scholar Author s biography says that even as a boy he was famous for being a good storyteller of ghost stories and during the reading I could imagine young boy telling his stories over fire to his friends and than those friends returning home to their dark [...]

    4. Rating 4 of fiveReading it was most amusing as I was, only yesterday, watching the 1968 BBC adaptation of the story I am deficient as a human being, somehow, as James s creepiness whizzes past me and leaves no trace on my creeper The story is, as a story, delightful and James is, as a writer, mannered yet quite readable.The adaptation is delightful but again leaves me utterly uncreeped It is a moral failing on my part, I m sure, and the legions of James fans are superior souls who see something [...]

    6. An essay in Michael Chabon s Maps and Legends titled The Other James refers to this M.R James ghost story as one of the finest short stories ever written, high praise that couldn t help but prompt me to read it And I did enjoy it, although I wouldn t say it was among my favorite short stories, let alone the finest ever written It reminded me a great deal of William Hope Hodgson s Carnacki, The Ghost Finder.

    7. One of James s famous stories, and for good reason Not only is it very atmospheric and creepy, particularly in the former half, but he also infuses a surprising amount of humour into it as well Just the professors bantering with each other at campus in the beginning is immediately engaging But then James takes you into his usual, magnificent realm of classic, understated, British ghostliness The imagery he evokes as the protagonist makes his way home along and the beach, and eventually notices [...]

Odli na kolekcija pri a.4 zvezdice po to iako volim kratku formu, pri e na momente deluju nedovr ene i zbrzane, za moj ukus.D ejmsov stil je jednostavna forma, bez psihologizacije i bazirana na modelu natprirodnog kao zlog i nepoznatog sa temeljom u folkloru i mitovima.D ejmsovo zlo je istinsko zlo, zlo koje esto nasumi no bira rtve, zlo koje ne biva nu no pobe eno i koje ne sti e samo one koji ga zaslu uju to pri ama daje jednu jo zlosutniju notu jer ostajemo bez obja njenja, bez za to.Za mene, [...]

    9. I wasn t really expecting much out of this audiobook since I had got it for free, what with being an audible member but I ended up enjoying it I thought the voice of the narrator really suited the plotline of the book It ended up really sucking me into the book I could not stop listening it, even though it is only less than an hour long, it makes it perfect as you can sit and listen to it in one take.

    10. This short story came very well recommended by a gentleman there was no other way to describe him, really of many winters as well as a girl in her mid twenties Well, I thought, if a text spans a gap like that and comes out on top, surely it s worth a look The first thing that struck me about the story is that it is very well written and very classically crafted and so made me feel immediately impatient The opening few pages take the form of a pretty stilted conversation between the protagonist, [...]

    12. I first watched the TV adaptation on the BBC as part of a Christmas Ghost story collection years ago with Michael Hordern in the lead role, as a child it was very creepy.This Audible audiobook version of the classic short story with David Suchet narrating it has been rendered less creepy by the passage of time, whilst he reads it well enough to give it all the suspense, I feel that the cynical, jaded version of me has spoilt the chill factor.It s still a well written piece that will stand and ha [...]

    13. I have arranged my thoughts into a haiku Something to be learned Items one finds in the dirtDon t go in one s mouth.

    14. Oh, Whistle and I ll Come Back to You My Lad 1904 written by M.R James, usually known as a master of the ghost stories, is about a young and superstitious professor who goes on a vacation with the recommendation of his friend All the events start when he finds a whistle which has Latin characters on and put it into his pocket After that, we start to witness his beliefs changing towards to the end of the story Usually, whistle symbolizes death in the literature which gives us a clue about what wi [...]

    15. Interesting short ghost story Very atmospheric, but as it is a short story there isn t that much going on in it.

    16. This is a classic ghost story that I picked up because Michael Chabon said it was one of the best short stories he ever read Part of what makes this so interesting is even though it was written in the early 1900 s the narrative style has a modern feel to it The unnamed narrator never part of the story is ironic, witty and playful The framework itself is a traditional ghost story in which a very non superstitious college professor is frightened out of his mind by an apparition MR James does spook [...]

    17. Audible book 50 mins, read by David Suchet I don t have many audio books the few I do have are ones where I also have the hard copy and therefore I am already familiar with the story But I have been a little disappointed with a couple of horror stories recently and I though I would give this a try Suchet does a great job, but even so I found myself struggling to focus on the narration I am a reader and doer rather than a listener, and I never really got into the story a result of my own inadequa [...]

    18. Its a fantastic little story which I listened to instead of reading it The author has the capability of presenting normal details as extraordinary somehow which is a great skill The result is a captivating and engaging tale of a sceptic professor s first ever ghost experience I wont spoil with too much details but this is a must read.

    19. Derek Jacobi introduces the tale of a curious artifact found in the ruins of a Knights Templar church Stars Jamie Broadcast on BBC Radio 7, 2 45pm Monday 21st December 2009Oh, whistle and I ll come to you, my lad is the title and refrain of a poem and song by Robert Burns.

    20. The story on it s own, I would give a much lower score The narrating by David Suchet however, made listening to this story a great experience Narration gets 5 stars, the story only 3.

    21. I quite enjoyed this short story from M.R James original collection Ghost Stories of an Antiquary While there is no real connection in terms of subject matter to the poem by Robert Burns that inspired the title, James interprets these words into a brief but chilling story of Parkins, a Cambridge professor, who inadvertently summons a spirit with the aid of a whistle he finds during a spontaneous archaeological endeavor while on holiday in Burnstow As soon as Parkins found this whistle, I was beg [...]

    22. Perhaps it was the calm manner it was read in, perhaps it was that I was on a sunny walk home but for whatever reason this tale board me It has none of the suspense and tension I d expect and was just disappointing Perhaps I ll pull the print version out for Halloween and give it another go but as an audio thus was a big no no.

    23. Wonderful little story, a gift from The Guardian Books Podcast It was read by the excellent Simon Callow and I was able to read along at the same time Very atmospheric.

    24. This is the best MR James story that I have read so far I had already seen the BBC television version starring John Hurt, but the story is even better Bedsheets have never been this scary

    25. A creepy narration that is all the charm of this little book Best read at night, while alone, with lights switched off and better still on a stormy night
