Great stories grossly overacted by the reader.
Could not get through the first story - presentation too painful to listen to.
A different narrator would have made the difference for me.
Behrman's masterpiece was very unexpected.
Well, I feel the acting of the voices was very much over acted. He was loudly over emphasizing words then, for overly dramatic effects he would whisper. Several times, I had to turn up the volume really high because his voice was so soft and then unexpectedly, he would almost shout. I still don't know what happens at the very end of Jack London's "To Build a Fire".
It was like taking Tony Robbins word emphasis, giving it to William Shatner then telling him to read it to children around the fireplace. Very awkward.
I wouldn't cut any character from this book.
