Yes. Because the story is good and very well told. It may be a tale for children, but it's not childish.
The farewell of the fox: I have read it in a book and seen it in a film, but this audible version is simply remarkable, Must be listened to!
Besides being very discernible, he can transmit a feeling and a pathos as very few actors/speakers. If you've just read the book, you would never suspect the intensity of feeling enclosed in the tale. Even the film I saw wasn't so good.
I cried, but because the tale evocates noble feelings. I wouldn't say that the tale is a sad one, but a beautiful one so beautiful since we are not used to such tales because we see them so seldom.
There's nothing like a good tale told with heart.
First the technical features: perfectly audible (a remarkable intonation) but somewhat slow due to, at times, a slow speech with many pauses.
I'm not an expert on AC Doyle's works but this tale surprised me favorably (I shouldn't tell the basic lines lest the spell is broken). It is a short story, but a smart one, and so can be enjoyed with little time devoted to it, at least in the adapted version. There must be reminded a memorable line of the tale: "The strange thing is that the dog didn't bark". I heard that quoted out of the context, but one must look at/ listen to that in the context to understand its meaning!
