No Story Dividers?

What disappointed you about The Very Best Classic Short Stories?

Who doesn't know that in a book of many parts you at least give chapter breaks? this one doesn't even provide breaks between short stories - it goes seamlessly from one chapter to the next then one story to the next without even taking a pause in breath.

Would you recommend The Very Best Classic Short Stories to your friends? Why or why not?

No. Boring

How could the performance have been better?

Performance was OK, but the lack of a break between chapters or even stories made it all monotonous.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not for me.

Any additional comments?

Nope
