oh god, if you don't know how to read for an audience, DON'T. I appreciate the effort of the readers, but some sound no better than a computet-generated voice, making the end product useless as audio. To the good readers: thanks for your attempt to make this listenable.

It was not great. Some of the men are played by women. Not really a problem for me though. Not the best acting.

Classic

(5 stars)

I thoroughly the story and was very happy with the way each actor distinguished his or her part.

Quick listen
