This audio collection had 160 of the fables, and I liked the variety of the selections. This was very enjoyable to revisit some childhood stories that I recalled and I had forgotten that they were such short tales. I had read some of them before, but others were new to me. I also enjoyed the use of animals to illustrate the morals of the tales. I was amazed that some common expressions we use today (such as physician heal thy self) comes from the morals of these fables; I guess I had never thought about where these expressions came from before nor had I recognized them as a youngster. The narrator did a decent job, so overall, I really liked this selection.
This was fun to listen to as an adult. The narration was very good, and I found that there was quite a bit that I had forgetton. I felt like I was revisiting some old friends!
It's always special to listen to Stephen Fry read. It's extra special when he reads something that he himself loves and he loves Oscar Wilde.
This is a collection of very entertaining children stories. I'm not sure if we would consider these 'children stories' today but like Grimm's fairy tales they were at least intended to be for children when they were written.
