Reviews

Classic story collection and very good recordings

(4 stars)

The recordings in this collection are generally excellent -- the sound quality is high; the readings are very clear and subtle and thoughtful. Hugh McGuire's reading of "The Dead" is a standout. I believe most of the readers are American, due to copyright restrictions. Some have Irish accents or use Irish accents as appropriate; they sound pretty good to my ear, but I speak from total ignorance of accents.
