The last story is incomplete!

What a letdown not to know how the last story works out. It's like falling off a cliff with no bottom.

Great stories - Awful reader

Would you try another book from Nathaniel Hawthorne and/or the narrators?

These wonderful stories are marred by the dreadful main read. She is simple terrible. The worst is add things like a Appalachian Farmer accent for Athenian rustics (Simply terrible!!)

Look for Anthony Quayle's version. Avoid this one.
