Perfect little story

Delightful story read to a live audience. Short and lovely. Sounds like it was on a radio show. The only problem is that she speaks very loudly at times and inaudibly whispers at others which does not suit my situation. It's night and my husband is sleeping. I'm using headphones, jumping out of my skin and loosing more hearing during those loud bits! Otherwise great performance.

Beautiful Short Story

Would you listen to Selected Shorts: Chivalry again? Why?

Yes!! I've listened to this story multiple times, and love it!! The characters are perfectly written, and the story is fresh and original. A quaint listen that is perfect for passing the time.

Which character – as performed by Christina Pickles – was your favorite?

My favorite character was Mrs Whitaker.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I even stayed in the car longer to finish the story, even after I'd reached my destination.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommend! This story is only about 20-30 minutes in length and is a very sweet story to show that there's still some magic in the world. If you love Neil Gaiman and fairy tales, this is the book for you!
