    Mrs Zant and the Ghost is a classic Victorian ghost story, recently offered as an Audible freebie Since it was free, I figured I d give it a go, even though it wasn t a story that really appealed to me Unfortunately, my initial impression proved accurate.Mrs Zant is recently widowed She has taken to walking in the gardens, where she and her husband first professed their love to one another While in the gardens, she believes that she sees the ghost of the husband that she loved so dearly Mrs Zant and the Ghost is a classic Victorian ghost story, recently offered as an Audible freebie Since it was free, I figured I d give it a go, even though it wasn t a story that really appealed to me Unfortunately, my initial impression proved accurate.Mrs Zant is recently widowed She has taken to walking in the gardens, where she and her husband first professed their love to one another While in the gardens, she believes that she sees the ghost of the husband that she loved so dearly Her encounter with the ghost is witnessed by Mr Rayburn, who also happens to be in the park that day Needless to say, Mrs Zant appears crazy to onlookers However, thehe talks to her, thethat Mr Rayburn begins to believe the widow.While this story might hold some appeal for others, it didn t do much of anything for me I never felt a connection to either of the main characters Mostly, this story seemed frigid and boring to me I couldn t manage to muster an ounce of concern or interest.It was a short story and it was free, so there is that If you re curious, it won t cost you anything to try it out It just wasn t for me I didn t feel even the slightest connection to this story.Check outof my reviews at www.bookaddicthaven.com

    Mrs Zant and the Ghost was a sweet little ghost story Even though it wasn t scary, it was entertaining, and I thought that Gillian Anderson did a decent job of narrating the tale A little bitdistinction between the voices would have been nice, but this book was short, so it was just a slight annoyance Recommended for fans of ghost stories, though I would recommend the volumes of M.R James before this one.

    A short tale of ghosts and love.Mrs Zant has recently lost her beloved husband and while walking in the Kensington Gardens, the spot where she and her deceased husband declared their love for each other, she feels his presence trying to warn her of some coming danger.Mr Rayburn witnesses it all and he ll have to fight his own incredulity regarding the supernatural and his gut feeling that the disturbed young woman is telling the truth.Collins at his best, much better than The turn of the screw A short tale of ghosts and love.Mrs Zant has recently lost her beloved husband and while walking in the Kensington Gardens, the spot where she and her deceased husband declared their love for each other, she feels his presence trying to warn her of some coming danger.Mr Rayburn witnesses it all and he ll have to fight his own incredulity regarding the supernatural and his gut feeling that the disturbed young woman is telling the truth.Collins at his best, much better than The turn of the screw by James, the story tells muchand with a sublime grace that James prose lacks in most of his novels

    A nice, simple ghost story.Not quite up to the standards of The Woman in White or The Moonstone, but enjoyable.
