Would you listen to Selected Poems by Robert Louis Stevenson With Biography again? Why?
Yes but only after I have absorbed the material.The wisdom of this writer is timeless and the simplicity of his work does not diminish the impact of the lessons that can be learned in our so called more advanced society.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Have you listened to any of Kristina Fuller Yuen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No but she is a good narrator and did her best with the material she had to work with.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Any additional comments?

Robert Louis Stevenson is best known for Treasure Island and Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but he's an enjoyable poet too.
His poetry is fairly straight forward and easy to understand. While I am sure there is layers to it, most (if not all) can be read an understood without spending a tonne of time deciphering imagery and metaphor. Easy to listen to, follow and enjoy.
The biography at the end is short (about 20 minutes) but is a interesting, quick overview of the author. He is actually a very interesting person beyond his books.
Narrator Kristina Fuller Yuen does a good job with the narration. There isn't a huge amount to work with here, but she is clear well paced and easy to listen to.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
