The stories require some knowledge of Austen and context for the reader to fully appreciate them. The performer's reading style is best when reading the narrator's voice and one female character. The male voices all sound too young or too old, which makes it difficult to keep track of ages. Some female voices are read too slowly, which contributes to some awkwardness perhaps not intended my Austen.
I love Jane Austen's completed work and just wanted to read everything there is. However, these are the products of a 'writer in training', of inferior quality compared to her later and completed work. And they are, indeed, just fragments! By the time you start understanding who the characters are and get to see the beginning of the plot, it's all over!
