Yes. The is a varied collection of short stories and short novels. I've read many, but most are one that I probably ever got around to reading myself. And there were a few new authors to me.
The Purple Dress by O. Henry. (I would like to hear Harrison perform more O. Henry).
Bernice Bobs Her Hair by Fitzgerald and The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell.
Sherlock Holmes from the Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle. There are many interesting characters, but Holmes may the most interesting character in literature. If not him, then Henry Adams from from Twain's Million Dollar Bank Note or the unnamed man from Jack London's To Build a Fire.
I look forward to listening to Classic Tales Podcasts 1 and 3.
Not top 25, but top 100.
Fu-Manchu. He brought the evil genius without making the man a one dimensional cardboard character.
This is one of those books which are easier to listen to then read text. Harrison is the reason.
Probably not. The performance was flawless, but these aren't my favorite stories.
The characters in distinct and I didn't have any trouble keeping track of them from story to story.
No, but that is almost impossible. Any reading is just a reading of a masterful work. There are many artists who recorded the various Sherlock Holmes novels and short stories. An there will be more, but Simon Vance is the best that I've encountered yet.
My only complaint is that this is one file. You won't be able to go to a specific book or short story. This is 58 hours in one file. This would have been much better as 9 works, each with chapters. Still, this is a good way to listen to all the books beginning to end.
I got got interested in Edison when seeing the Menlo Park exhibit at the Henry Ford in Michigan. This is the first book that I've heard that covered his life and the impact he had on so many aspects of America.
Grover Gardner is my favorite narrator. There are a few sections that I think can be condensed. This shows the failures as well as the successes of Edison and he managed to alter our lives.
I've heard this three time now. The last time was after Anonymous came out because I couldn't see how anyone could think that Shakespeare wasn't Shakespeare. I still can't.
This may be may favorite book on Shakespeare. This book covers how young Shakespeare became the Barb. The detail is amazing and the narration is outstanding.
The story starts as a group start off trick-or-treating only to discover that one of their group is gone. I have read this short book several time, generally around Halloween. This isn't a life changing book, but is a good Halloween period yarn. I may be a little easier to follow as a book because of all of the characters, but the narration is excellent.
