Read in a mixture of Middle-English and modern English, The Canterbury Tales is a collection of stories written by Geoffrey Chaucer at the end of the 14th century.
The tales are told as part of a story-telling contest by a group of pilgrims as they travel together on a journey from Southwark to the shrine of Saint Thomas Becket at Canterbury Cathedral.

Not a quality product
The volume of the performances are not consistent. There is no documentation so you don't know what excerpt that you are listening to. If you try to read along, good luck. I would not buy this again. It was cheap, but it isn't helpful. There are 12 chapters called "Chapter 1..... Chapter 12".
Terrible Recording Quality
Sounds like an old 78 rpm record. Very uneven sound, complete with clicks, tape hiss, and wheezing.
In bad need of remastering!

can't understand the dude
i barely made it to chapter two. The narrator was very hard to understand. Needs to read without any accents.
