LibriVox 5th Anniversary Collection Vol. 2

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4 stars; 1 reviews)

What do you do for a fifth anniversary? We decided to have a collection of short works with a difference. We challenged our readers to find any short works which had 'five' in the title - in any language. They have done us proud, and the collection extends to three volumes of short stories, poems, fairy tales, memoirs, non-fiction and bible readings, in six languages. This is the second volume. (Summary by Ruth Golding)

Interesting mix, reading is fine.

(4 stars)

An interesting mix of stories of many different genres, in several different languages. All are read well. The Fool of Five Forks, Mother of Five and At Five O'Clock in the morning are entertaining listens. And tracks 18 and 19 are sung and sung beautifully. Well worth a listen. Thank you to all the readers.
