    Eighteen of the very best American short stories, each a classic in its own right. Stories include "The Little Frenchman and his Water Lots", by George Pope Morris; "The Angel of the Odd", by Edgar Allan Poe; "The Schoolmasters’s Progress", by Caroline M.S. Kirkland; "The Watkinson Evening", by Eliza Leslie; "Titbottom’s Spectacles", by George William Curtis; "My Double and "How He Undid Me", by Edward Everett Hale; "A Visit to the Asylum for Aged and Decayed Punsters", by Oliver Wendell; and more.

    George says: "Unamused"
    "Some delightful stories spoiled by the narration."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Different narrator.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Having difficulty staying with the audiobook due to the narrator. I will finish it but it will take a lot of work.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    No levity or personality to her reading.


    Any additional comments?

    While the narrator's voice is pleasant I am not convinced she enjoyed reading the book aloud. She needs much more life in her performance to make the characters come to life.
