This classic deserves a terrific narrator and Timothy nails it!

I wish Timothy would do more classics, especially those where different English dialects are needed

Abridged

In some ways the abridged version is better—more plot, less extraneous commentary. The questions of duty, morality, inherent good and evil, and sacrifice in this novella are well worth one’s time.
