Kate Chopin's The Story of an Hour has always been much loved and much debated. Its plot involves a women recently widowed from her overbearing husband, and what happens to her in her newfound freedom. Did she love him? Did she hate him? Listeners will surely have their own convictions regarding these open questions. Walter Covell narrates this early feminist work in an eloquent baritone, with noticeable lovely enunciation.

I was not familiar with Kate Chopin's work before but found this story very dark and almost pointless.
Everything was wrong about this book- the short length of under one hour and taking an hour to tell a story that could be told as a joke in less than 60 seconds.
