Really loved this book on audio as it was really rather creepy and made me want to read the book. It's the first book in the series although I think each book is a separate story. This book is about a boy who visits his uncle who tells him horror stories. Each story has a chapter so it's mainly a collection of short stories with narration from Edgar (the boy) and Uncle Montague himself throughout. Thoroughly enjoyed this book, especially the stories; 'Climb Not', 'The Un-door'and 'Winter-Pruning'. I agree some were a tad weak and the ending was a bit 'blah' but overall the short stories are good themselves in their own right. Definitely recommend this to fans of gothic historical fiction. Would recommend to around ages 11 and up. Looking forward to reading the next one :)
