One might expect that listening to a book about ghosts should be avoided at night. However, Colin Dickey's history is more academic than scary, and Jon Lindstrom's narration reflects that approach. As such, there's no risk of sensationalizing the topic. But this more formal narration style may limit the attraction to the audio. Although the narration varies in pace and tone, and Lindstrom's voice is comfortable and reassuring, the nonfiction tenor of the material is strong. One difficulty in this performance is that it's often tough to differentiate the author's words from quoted materials. Listening will work best for those who have an interest in the topic.
