Not his best stories and not the greatest reader

What did you like best about Guy de Maupassant: Selected Stories? What did you like least?

Occasional good story. Really bad reader(s).

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)


What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

Very stilted, annoying Boston or Bronx accent.

Could you see Guy de Maupassant: Selected Stories being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?


Any additional comments?

Yeah, don't let this guy read anymore. From the reader of "The Horla", anyway. It was so disturbing listening to his plodding, badly-accented speech that it really took any enjoyment away from the story.
