    From Vladimir Nabokov, the writer who shocked and delighted the world with his novels Lolita, Pale Fire, and Ada, or Ardor, comes a magnificent collection of stories. Written between the 1920s and the 1950s, these 68 tales — 14 of which have been translated into English for the first time - display all the shades of Nabokov’s imagination.

    Story

    There are about forty stories filled with sounds, colors, wit, and enchantment in this audiobook. I love Nabokov's style of writing and had already read all his stories. Now I enjoy them in audible form and Arthur Morey's narration. It suffices to listen one story and the whole day will turn up brighter. This stories bring beauty and charm in everyday life.

    Story

    I was attracted to this short audiobook by the performers and its conciseness. I wondered how it could have been made so short. Well, it' s limited just to the main episodes of Ana's and Vronski's love. For a listener who read the entire Ana Karenina this extract is like a delicious dessert. I enjoyed very much Ingrid Bergman's and Gregory Peck's interpretation and I hear it time and again indulging myself.
    But, charming as it is, this dramatisation can't be considered a replacemant to the whole novel. Ana Karenina is a must be read or listend from the first to the last line.

    Listening, I hear some backgroung sounds like the rastle in old movies. Was it made on purpose? I wouldn't miss it.

    Margaret Atwood is acknowledged as one of the foremost writers of our time. In Moral Disorder, she has created a series of interconnected stories that trace the course of a life and also the lives intertwined with it, those of parents, of siblings, of children, of friends, of enemies, of teachers, and even of animals. As in a photograph album, time is measured in sharp, clearly observed moments.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Moral Disorder and Other Stories to be better than the print version?

    Moral Disorder and other Stories was my first audiobook. Before listening I had read the book and found it excellent. It's hard to say which version was better -.by reading I could choose my pace, by listening I enjoyed an artistic interpretation ....


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The stories are about Nell's life but I wouldn't say she was the main character. Nell made two decissions relatively by herself - to become editor and to choose an considerably older married man as her partner. All the other life conditions and companions happened to her . I would say LIFE is the main character with it's ups and downs. By superficially reading or hearing all semas al right but an


    Have you listened to any of Susan Denaker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Susan Denaker did a great work narrating M. Atwood's stories. I liked her voice and the way she had modulated it in presenting different characters. My favorite


    If you could take any character from Moral Disorder and Other Stories out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Whom would I take out to dinner? Margaret Atwood for her artful style and Susan Denaker for her wonderful interpretation.


    Any additional comments?

    For me English is a forign language - you have noticed it reading my review. I often don't undestand what I hear and have to look into the print version. Or, I read first in the print book and listen then the part in the audio version. The way this audiobok was broken makes it extremely difficult to find the right location. It would be much easier, had the audiobook been broken accordingly to the titles in the print version.
