Another great selection of stories

This second collection of "Great Classic Stories" is just as rewarding as the first, with something for everyone, including comedy, tragedy, suspense, and romance.

From Huxley's brassy lunchtime companion to the sad teller of Gilbert's love story, nearly every story reveals an unforgettable character or two, and the narrators are first-rate. I particularly enjoyed Bill Wallis and Simon Vance.

Here are the stories in order:

YOUNG GOODMAN BROWN by Nathaniel Hawthorne

THE CASK OF AMONTILLADO by Edgar Allan Poe

COUSIN WILLIAM by Harriet Beecher Stowe

HOW I EDITED AN AGRICULTURAL PAPER by Mark Twain

A PIECE OF STRING by Guy de Maupassant

ANGELA, AN INVERTED LOVE STORY by W. S. Gilbert

THE NIGHTINGALE AND THE ROSE by Oscar Wilde

THE STORY OF AN HOUR by Kate Chopin

A JURY OF HER PEERS by Susan Glaspell

ARABY by James Joyce

THE MARK ON THE WALL by Virginia Woolf

THE INTERLOPERS by Saki

HEAD AND SHOULDERS by F. Scott Fitzgerald

THE STRANGER by Katherine Mansfield

THE BLIND MAN by D. H. Lawrence

NUNS AT LUNCHEON by Aldous Huxley

Entertaining!

This audio book would have been worth the purchase if only for the reading of Mark Twain's "How I Edited An Agricultural Paper." I bust up laughing every time I hear that story! However, this audio book is filled with great short stories and are sure to entertain and are read by a variety of great readers. I would recommend this to anyone!
