Otherworldly but this time seriously scary is Robert Louis Stevenson's The Body Snatcher and other stories read by Roy McMillan. Perfectly chilling tales of graveyards and murder. - Kati Nicholl, Daily Express Although The Body Snatcher, The Poor Thing and The Bottle Imp are not as well known as Stevenson's Treasure Island, Kidnapped, Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Child's Garden of Verses, they are well worth listening to. The Body Snatcher, a gruesome tale, probably the best known of the three has been made into at least one horror movie. Two medical student assistants are responsible for taking in dead bodies in the middle of the night to be dissected by the other students. What happens when Fettes, the younger one, recognizes two of them? The Poor Thing is a Joseph Jacobs-like fairy tale in which an odd little wraith tells a poor man he will be his son one day. The Bottle Imp reminds one of an Arabian Nights tale and O. Henry's The Gift of the Magi: who will best love and outdo the sacrifice of the loved one? Roy McMillan's mellow, low key reading is richly done. Most enjoyable. - Mary Purucker, SoundCommentary.com
