Dumas has written so much that is classic, it's easy to overlook the other great storytellers of France. This volume makes for a good introduction.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I found it nearly impossible to get anything from this because both performance & presentation are so bad. The reading manages to be both overblown and robotic. Clearly the reader has little or no real engagement with the material & falls back on bad acting, cliche and guesswork where understanding, subtlety and nuance are required. A real shame as I was pleased to find some English translations of classic French literature on audible.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Classic French Short Stories, Volume 1?
The appalling & off putting music springs toMind
How could the performance have been better?
In so many ways. Nuance, subtlety & a sense that the reader had engaged with the texts would be a start though.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
More translations of French lit would be nice. Particularly if done well.
Could not work out if the narator was human, or a computer. The voice often sounded like a voice recogniton programme. Not the easiest listen from Audible.
