(2 stars)

Listen to the other version recorded by Elizabeth Klett. While most readers for this version are decent I still had trouble getting into the story & staying with it. I tried more than once as it's rated so well on Goodreads. Luckily one reviewer mentioned the other Librivox recording. Why anyone at Librivox would waste time getting a 2nd version done when the 1st one is perfect, I don't know.

(5 stars)

A beautifully written novella with thinly disguised sexual undertones.
