He took me into his box, where there was a fire, a desk for an official book in which he had to make certain entries, a telegraphic instrument with its dial, face, and needles, and the little bell of which he had spoken. On my trusting that he would excuse the remark that he had been well educated, and (I hoped I might say without offence) perhaps educated above that station, he observed that instances of slight incongruity in such wise would rarely be found wanting among large bodies of men; that he had heard it was so in workhouses, in the police force, even in.

I got this book for my kindle app because of the recommendation of the Signal-man from a friend here. This was the only book I could find in the app that had the story and for free. I didn't mind it came with two other stories, just cause I love ghost stories!
The 3 stories in the book are: The Signal-Man, The Haunted House, and The Trial for Murder. They're three short stories, but The Haunted House was the biggest of them and had 2 chapters. But I'll get to that one in a min.
I loved the signal-man! as I read it I remembered the story from TV... pretty sure the 1st time was on x-files. Anyway, I've always loved this story but I forgot how most of it went. I do remember the phantom keeps showing up at the mouth of the tunnel, but that was it. The phantom shows himself to an old signalman when disasters are gonna happen. And he's the one that only sees him. He tries to tell a guy that was passing by(& did come back to see the signalman). but even though he thinks the old man is sane he thinks the guy has been at his job too long. And even thinks of taking the old man to see someone in the future. The old man tells the guy of his experiences, and they're chilling. Especially when he tells the guy he ran through to where the ghost was once and was standing in the tunnel and had a frightening experience! The real chilling aspect of this story is the ending. When the guy comes back to see the old signalman. I'm not saying what happens(even though some ppl have here). This is a very atmospheric chilling ghost story! if you're looking for bloody gore this will disappoint you. But if you're looking for a classic eerie chiller this ones for you!
Now for The Haunted House. I can see why some ppl didn't like this story. I did to a point. The first chapter establishes how the guy got to the house, the neighbors(who stay clear of it & tell him its haunted), the house, and him and his sister and their friends in the house. I didn't mind reading this chapter cause it gave a good description of the house and neighborhood. The second chapter tells of his personal hauntings. I thought it was fascinating how the ghosts came to him in the mirror! and I loved the waking up with the skeleton in the bed bit. The problem where it lost me was the adventure he tells on his journeys with the ghost Master B. he tells of Egypt with miss griffin, etc.. he tells like hes actually reliving someone else's problems there. I read it but I just wasn't IN it. i just didn't care what I was reading. It just felt misplaced. I couldn't wait for that adventure to be over with, it was a long one. then its his bed and the skeleton, the end. So this one missed the mark for me. I'd give this story 2 stars if it was by itself. extra star being the ghosts in the mirror and having him forever waking up with a skeleton.
The Trial for Murder was another gem! This one is creepy and chilling like the Signalman. But this ghost was more prevalent. Making it more chilling. this guy sees two men out his window running. He sees both their faces. There's a murder and hes summoned for the jury. He recognized the guy charged with murder as one of the men fleeing he saw out his window. He then sees the other man he saw and realizes its the murdered man. Throughout the trial this ghost appears, and its only the guy on the jury that sees him. But the ghost makes itself known! He'll stand behind witnesses and others in the courtroom, affect the defense attorney, be in the jury room, and the most creepiest of them all: in the room where the jury sleeps, the murdered man stands by the bedside by the head of each sleeping juror influencing their dreams! that's a creepy thought of a dead person standing next to your bed so close! This one was fun!
All in all I do recommend this book for the Signalman and the Trial for Murder! Both were great reads! I'm glad my friend recommended the signal-man! otherwise I wouldn't of read these stories... at least for the present. And yeah I'm glad I rad The haunted House, even if a large chunk of the end I didn't care for or couldn't get into. it was an experience! that's what reading is, experiences! Can be great, good, or bad, but they're lil journeys u go though when u read them. So, yeah this book was a really good experience :-)

This was a good collection of ghost stories, although I think the best one was the second, about the member of the jury who's haunted by the murder victim. The first story started out interesting (people knowingly taking on a "haunted" house), then became a little too weird. The third story involves a railway signalman with a recurring and disturbing premonition. Definitely worth a read, especially if your only previous experience with Dickens is Great Expectations.

A trio of ghostly narratives by Charles Dickens, including "The Signal Man," probably his most anthologized ghost story. They creak a bit, and modern readers will find them bereft of Gore (o, the film-inured generation!), but they still give a good dose of eerie for discerning readers.
Deeroman
Charles Dickens' body of work is s extensive and so varied it is not surprising that this trilogy of the supernatural flavored ghost stories is a departure from his novels .Because his sentence structure is wordy and complex in contrast to that in more common use today , more than a century and a half later , the reader has to persist n wanting to sample these three tales .

I am loathe to give a Charles Dickens book only two stars, however for me this book was slow and not very interesting. Of the three ghost stories I only read the first to completion and have "parked" the book before finishing the second story. I may go go back to it at some stage, purely because I hate to give up on a book.

The text itself is fine; quintessential Dickens. The producers of this e-book included "illustrations." This reader inferred that said illustrations would be the nineteenth-century drawings so often known to accompany Dickens' novels. This was most definitey not the case. The ostensible illustrations were valueless graphics that brought more distraction to the reading than contribution to the imagination. If I can avoid this publisher in the future, I will.
Shakanos
if you are in to Dickens, you must read this. He is the master of stories and this is sure to please you. I recommend this to all for a taste of a true storytellers tale of ghosts.
Dickens was never a writer to merely entertain; he liked to instruct as well. Yet he could set a scene like no one else ever could. His ghost stories are atmospheric and chilling.
