    Here is a collection of the Oscar Wilde's famous fairy tales, read by a cast of leading British actors. Additional narrators include Geoffrey Palmer O.B.E., Sir Donald Sinden, and Elaine Stritch. Music: 'Reverie De Sebastian' by Steve Davies.

    Jefferson says: "Poignant Modern Fairy Tales Wonderfully Read"
    "Fairy Tales Oscar Wilde"
    Overall

    Audible does not list out each separate story in this collection so I can not simply play the one story I like but must skip or search through this book. There is no table of contents or identification of specific story, narrator, etc. This is a huge drawback.

    This wonderful collection of 18 short stories includes work by some of literature's most treasured names, including Mark Twain, Edgar Allan Poe, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Oscar Wilde, and many more. This superlative treasury includes "The Cask of Amontillado" by Edgar Allan Poe; "A Piece of String" by Guy Le Maupassant; "The Story of an Hour" by Kate Chopin; "The Mark on the Wall" by Virginia Woolf; "Nuns at Lunch" by Aldous Huxley, and many more!

    Die Falknerin says: "Another great selection of stories"
    "Great Classic Stories II"
    Overall

    The audible download does not itemize this book by each story so I have no way to find a specific story and play it. I see no index or table of contents to review to know titles, author, narrator, etc. Maybe I am missing something but that is a huge drawback.
