Great stories

(4 stars)

The works of Montgomery are always a source of delight, and this is no exception. Some story plots seem to be a bit overused, but still have the magic. I especially like 'Miriam's Lover', 'The Jest That Failed' and 'The Red Room'. The readers to these are quite good. But, I cannot say the same for all of them. But then, this isn't Karen Savage. One has to get used to different audios and voices, but, overall, good recording and quality.

Tricia G has a voice that is very hard to listen to. She has an edge at the end of each sentence that can be quite intolerable. I've notice in Anne of the Island and the Christmas Mistake on this audio.

Could be better

Recent studies show that audio books aid with pain. I've known this for long. I've listened to L. M. Montgomery's works over and over to distract me from chronic pain. However, many of these readers are difficult to listen to, unlike the ever-pleasant Karen Savage. Some readers tend to mumble, while others have odd cadences, their voices raising at the end of each breath to make it sound as if the text is full of questions.


(5 stars)

A wonderful collection of well written stories from a talented author. There is a wide range of genres and topics to delight any listener, from romance to ghost stories. Most of the readers do an excellent job, and none of them were so bad as to render the listening experience distasteful. Overall a great audiobook; highly recommended!!

Nice short stories by a author I enjoy listening to her works. I find all her works very uplifting and enjoyable to listen to. Readers were all good and was just a pleasant exprience. Thanks for this collection. Well worth listening to.

Interesting read. I hadn't heard many of these stories yet. There were a few I didn't love but it was all very Montgomery. The readers were pretty good. The last story was very quiet though.

great dishwashing stories.
