    Where does Selected Shorts: American Classics rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best Audible selections of the dozens in my library.


    What other book might you compare Selected Shorts: American Classics to and why?

    A unique experience. Inspired pairing of readers and texts.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Rene Auberjonois' masterful, remarkable delivery of an Edgar Allen Poe story is worth the purchase price on its own. In his hands, the minute joys of Poe's writing are presented to their best advantage. Stockard Channing's similarly spellbinding performance in a Eudora Welty selection will make you want to read everything (or re-read) Welty ever wrote--her mastery of Welty's prose is astounding.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't recommend this highly enough.
