There are about forty stories filled with sounds, colors, wit, and enchantment in this audiobook. I love Nabokov's style of writing and had already read all his stories. Now I enjoy them in audible form and Arthur Morey's narration. It suffices to listen one story and the whole day will turn up brighter. This stories bring beauty and charm in everyday life.
I was attracted to this short audiobook by the performers and its conciseness. I wondered how it could have been made so short. Well, it' s limited just to the main episodes of Ana's and Vronski's love. For a listener who read the entire Ana Karenina this extract is like a delicious dessert. I enjoyed very much Ingrid Bergman's and Gregory Peck's interpretation and I hear it time and again indulging myself.
But, charming as it is, this dramatisation can't be considered a replacemant to the whole novel. Ana Karenina is a must be read or listend from the first to the last line.
Listening, I hear some backgroung sounds like the rastle in old movies. Was it made on purpose? I wouldn't miss it.

Susan Denaker did a great work narrating M. Atwood's stories. I liked her voice and the way she had modulated it in presenting different characters. My favorite
Whom would I take out to dinner? Margaret Atwood for her artful style and Susan Denaker for her wonderful interpretation.
For me English is a forign language - you have noticed it reading my review. I often don't undestand what I hear and have to look into the print version. Or, I read first in the print book and listen then the part in the audio version. The way this audiobok was broken makes it extremely difficult to find the right location. It would be much easier, had the audiobook been broken accordingly to the titles in the print version.
