    Russian literature exudes an atmosphere of mysticism, which is said to be a natural result of the simplicity of her people. Often, instead of being "about" anything, Russian stories sometimes seem to be the "thing" in itself. Be this as it may, it is an undeniable fact that with hardly any portent of future greatness to come, Russian literature suddenly sprang fully developed into existence in the 19th century.

    Would you try another book from the authors and/or Charlton Griffin?

    Only if I could put it on fast forward! His voice has a pleasant tonality, but his intonation and expression are quite morose.


    Any additional comments?

    It is difficult to listen to this reader labour through the various texts. I found myself wanting to help him with the next words. The narrator reads these stories as slowly as Mr. Chillip speaks (David Copperfield). In addition, there is background music through much of this recording, creating a very different listening experience.
