Excellent Selection

One issue with this audiobook is that the story titles and authors aren't always given at the beginning, nor are there chapter titles. The stories are (in order):

James Joyce - After the Race
Anton Chekhov - A Transgression
Leo Tolstoy - Three Questions
Kate Chopin - The Story of an Hour
Charles Dickens - The Child's Story
Saki - The Open Window

This is an excellent selection overall, with the stories by Chekhov, Tolstoy and Saki being especially notable. I literally laughed out loud during A Transgression, and was deeply impressed by Three Questions. A bit expensive for only an hour, but still recommended.

chapter 5 Charles Dickens the child was a gem

this collection was worth it alone for Charles Dickens the child in chapter 5. it seemed to sum up life itself.

Not great

I wish I hadn’t spent a credit on this. I wasn’t a fan of the performances. The stories are ok.
