The Parasite

by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

16 ratings, 6 reviews

Being a physiologist, Austin Gilroy is unconvinced that the occult is real. His friend Professor Wilson, however, is not only convinced that psychical powers are real, but eagerly desires that Gilroy should be persuaded. To this end, Wilson invites Austin to his house for a demonstration. The effect is that Austin, although still skeptical, now concedes that there is more in the matter than he at first believed. But when the psychic, Miss Penclosa, controls his actions to the point where he nearly murders his fiancee, Austin Gilroy doubts no longer.

Mesmerizing tale of hypnosis used for evil. Enjoyable story!

The subject matter was provocative utilizing the skills of a renowned author to weave a tale in which the ending was both, unexpected and satisfying.

Great Short Story! The storyline continues to introduce people, facts & situations, while the reader attempts to guess, what is about to happen!

My only dislike here, involves the gentleman reading our thriller, he was almost completely monotone. How ever, our professor's rapid and straightforward descent, was a Journey to Remember.
