What did you love best about Great French and Russian Short Stories, Volume 1 (Unabridged Selections)?
The recording seems to be a little dated and tinny which may account for previous reviewers withholding stars. But the readers are skilled and they don't over-dramatize the prose.
It's a good collection and encompasses a variety of themes - most are dryly funny or ironic, a few are tragic, one is hopelessly sentimental. The stories are all entertaining and are a wonderful exposure to French and Russian authors without committing 20 hours at a time. I'll be looking for more like this.

I really enjoyed this audio. I have never listened to short stories. I enjoyed going from one story to another instead of listening for 14 hours to one. As can be expected, some stories are great-others very slow. I enjoyed most stories and discovered new authors I am intrested whose works I am intrested in reading.
