Pretty good stories mediocre narration

Overall it's an ok buy. It's a standard performance of any classical work, but as compared to the other books this narrator has read, she seems less enthusiastic about this one. I'm pretty sure she's the same narrator who did Stories to Tell in the Dark and Pride and Prejudice. I do however, enjoy the collection of work this book entails. I've even found a few that I've fallen. In love with (the card) this is a pretty great book if you use a credit, but overkill if you buy it with money. Most of the cost I'm assuming is to the reader and Not the copyrights of the stories.
