(5 stars)

They saved the best one for last, but there were 3 or4 others in the same category.

. excellent readers the stories are great recommend this book

(5 stars)

all of the readers could enunciate the words very well and give the proper emphasis and emotion as needed. I recommend this audiobook to those who like short stories. these are not detective, mystery, or horror stories but just pleasant little stories to hear and maybe recollect a little

(5 stars)

Many of these stories were new to me, and not repeated entries from other collections. The readers were, in general good, with different abilities of course. For me, the de Maupasant stories were very good, though, I found others good as well. THANK YOU ALL.

5 star for Mr. Tomlinson's reading of The Gameskeeper. Best short story and wonderful vivid narration
