The short story is considered to be one of the most challenging genres because of the need for compact plotlines and the ability to conjure up atmosphere and character in a few sentences and to engage the reader instantly. This collection presents 66 of the greatest examples of the genre - many of them well known, some hidden literary treasures, all of them exquisite examples of the short story at its finest.
And over 40 other great stories....

I feel bad saying this but the reader's voice is so unpleasant as to make it impossible for me to listen to this. Which is a shame as I think there is a wealth of stories here.
The stories, as could be expected are varied - some great and some rather less so. Unfortunately, for me, I found the narration very difficult and annoying to listen to. I would suggest that before you buy, you have a listen to see what you think. This distracted from my enjoyment to the point where I moved onto another book - rather a waste of money but then, you only have time to listen to so many books in a lifetime!!
No - for me, the narration was too annoying to enjoy
"Loved listening to the different stories."
Enjoyed the era of the tales. Provides interesting insight into the thinking and lives of the time.
The narrator totally sucked
Poked my ears out after trying to listen to this.
I would need a lobotomy first.
