Classic Fitzgerald

Archetypical Fitzgerald story of an average man pining for an extraordinarily rich woman. Narration is fine. Not notable, but not distracting or problematic.

Terrible voice reader! Impossible to listen to!

If there were zero stars, I would give this zero stars. Winter Dreams is probably one of the best short stories ever written. I could not even listen to the first page of this narrators voice. I think it's computerized. It's so horrible that I want to return it, even though I only spent $.99. What an incredible disappointment. Do not waste your money! If you want a real treat get Jake Gyllenhaal's reading of The Great Gatsby, it's pure delight! Gyllenhaal is a fabulous reader! I hope somebody pays him to do a version of winter dreams, it would be so worth it. As it is done by this version it's a disaster.

Great Fritzgerald

Typical Fitzgerald with the story being so much deeper than the length of the short book.

Opens up so many questions on what a person is willing to give up but then do you regret the loss? Amazing short story from my favourite classic author.

Good book

Good book, interesting and short. The Narration took some getting used to. It sounded patched together at first, but as the story went on was easier to follow.
