A collection of ghost stories from classic writer M. R. James, this is perfect for people who want some old-school suspense. Not exactly what I expected - a lot less creepy/scary - but still a nice collection to get into the Halloween spirit if you're not into contemporary horror. They're quite formulaic - scholar discovers something abnormal and then gets a scare - so I wouldn't recommend reading it in one sitting. I read a few in a row one day and it just felt like different versions of the same story, so for that reason I think they'd be enjoyed more as the odd short story here and there in between other reads.

2.5/5 rounded up to 3
