This is a nice collection of short stories read by different readers (among them I recognised Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry).
The only annoying thing is that they don't always say who is going to read it and I'd like to hear this as well, so I can go out and look on audible for more books that are read by these people...
"Short Stories review"
I find this book fascinating. There is Drama, Mystery, History, a little of comedy, one story,"The Cat Who Walked By Himself" by Kipling is so full of imagination it is unbelievable. I have listened to it many times and am not tired of it yet.The reader did an excellent job, also. The only story I had read previous to acquiring this one is Poe's "The Black Cat". The other stories in the book are not the mainstream that you see everywhere, Like "The Girl from Arles"-or at least I had never read it before. This book was well worth the effort to get it and continues to entertain me.
