WOW is the first word that springs to mind when asked what I thought of this one, The Secret of Crickley Hall is one of the most chilling books I've listened to in a long while, I definitely should not have tried listening to it in the middle of the night in the dark that's for sure as I was suddenly aware of every single little sound inside my own house which totally freaked me out for a bit.
Where does The Secret of Crickley Hall rank among all the audiobooks youa€™ve listened to so far? What does Steven Pacey bring to the story that you wouldna€™t experience if you had only read the book?

Even though it is a work of fiction, the shock of what Augustus and his sister did to those kids in their "care" stays with one, I suspect, FOREVER!! Making the characters a bit less one-dimensional and more relatable might have improved this book a lot. A good, original story although The Secret of Crickley Hall isn't the best James Herbert book I've ever read.

As announced in July 2012, Stiles White is set to direct a script he co-wrote with Juliet Snowden.
I when first read The Secret of Crickley Hall, I thought it was one of James Herbert's best stories.
Brilliantly written, James Herbert at his absolute best, this one is a definite must for all haunting or after life fans. Saw the tv series a few years ago and it was OK but Steven's narration brought the sheer creepy shockhorror of what the children went through at the hands of their "guardians" to the full!
That being said, some of the scenes are quite chilling, so I would still recommend this to friends of old-fashioned horror stories.
Where a cellar door you know you locked the night before is always open the following morning?  Where hushed whimpering is heard?  Where white shadows steal through the darkness?  Where the presence of evil is all around you?

This will be White’s first turn as a director, though he has worked in special effects on films like The Sixth Sense and Jurassic Park III. Gabe has brought his wife, Eve, and daughters, Loren and Cally, down to Devon, to the peaceful seaside village of Hollow Bay. Steven Pacey does a fantastic job as always bringing the characters and story line to life, the range of voices are incredible. Lili is reticent at first to return to Crickley Hall, having had previous unsettling experiences there, but Eve manages to persuade her and Lili holds a seance. She finds out about his punishment book, and comes up with an idea on how to retrieve this. It seems like the perfect destination, until cellar doors open of their own accord, unseen children cry through the night and water seeps through impervious rock.
He can work and Eve and the kids can have some peace and quiet - and perhaps they can try, as a family, to come to terms with what's happened to them. He can work, and Eve and the kids can have some peace and quiet - and perhaps they can try, as a family, to come to terms with what's happened to them. When I saw this was available & the narrator was Steven Pacey I new this audio book would be fantastic, & it was! A definite five starts well worth the download and listen, only one thing its a real shame it was an abridged version and not the unabridged one. Cribben curses Maurice for disturbing his peaceful moment and demands that the boy return upstairs. Crickley Hall is an unusually large house on the outskirts of the village at the bottom of Devil's Cleave, a massive tree-lined gorge, the stuff of local legend. The characters were slightly obvious but I warmed to them and I found myself talking to them during the story which is generally a good sign that I am pretty engrossed. The narration was good, the quality and pace were fine. Time shifts between present day and 1943 as the Caleighs desperately try to find out what connects Crickley Hall to their lost boy. With brooding menace and rising tension, he masterfully and relentlessly draws the listener through to the ultimate revelation: one that will stay to chill the mind long after the book has been laid aside.
