Reviews


(5 stars)

I disagree with the previous reviewer. I think these were excellent stories, and Mr. Grothman’s readings are deliberate and clear. I am grateful that there are so many volunteers putting in the effort to make these public domain works available to people—and for free! Librivox has resurfaced so many great gems that might otherwise have never seen the daylight again.

reader’s style not to my liking


(1 stars)

I couldn’t finish the first chapter. I found the reader’s choice of voices for the characters difficult to listen to. Made the story seem stupid.
