Just one complaint

This is a fine collection. The narration is also good. The one REALLY annoying characteristic is that there is no break between stories. No announcement of author, title, date etc. The next story just starts in with even less pause than between sentences within a story. If it were not for the fact that the narrator changes, you would not even be able to tell only by listening when one ends and the next one starts.

Needs a pdf download to track book titles/authors/

I agree with another reviewer in that there is no way to know the title and author of the short story, or for that matter who is narrating. A break between stories and an introduction to identify the narrator would be a welcome enhancement. Most books on tape have this feature, and this shortfall is somewhat frustrating when trying to identify selections from a collection.

If nothing else, to have a pdf document posted to the site with this information would be tremendously helpful.

Other than that shortcomming, the stories met my expectations of these well known authors. The stories spark imagination and easily transend the decades since they were created and are every bit as entertaining today.

The writing is great, the naration is entertaining; but the lack of knowing exactly what you are listening to detracts from the entertainment value.
