Can Such Things Be?

Gelesen von Roger Melin

(4,345 Sterne; 113 Bewertungen)

24 short stories in fairly typical Bierce fashion - ghostly, spooky, to be read (or listened to) in the dark, perhaps with a light crackling fire burning dimly in the background. Stories of ghosts, apparitions, and strange, inexplicable occurrences are prevalent in these tales, some of which occur on or near Civil War fields of battle, some in country cottages, and some within urban areas. Can Such Things Be? implies and relates that anything is possible, at any time. (Summary by Roger Melin) (7 hr 37 min)

Uh oh, buried alive in chapter 3! (no spoiler)

(5 Sterne)

Narrator's rich tone adds to the quality of these. His reading is so well-done I forgot it was a LibriVOX production, and thought I was listening to an old broadcast! We're not worthy! LibriVOX volunteers rule!

hot damn! well authored works on librivox are so many. a well read work on librivox is so rare. this is a rare and precious ruby: a naturally clear and considerately recorded collection of works, authored by one of the greatest U.S. authors to have put ink on paper.

chilling
