    "Good listening"

    I liked most of the selections in this Audio book, it makes for an entertaining listening. The problem is the sound quality of some of the poems, which is not very good.

    "Great poems, poorly read"

    The poems selected were great but the quality of narration was uneven and did not hold my or my grandchildren's interest.

    "Good, but some audio problems"

    All the tracks except for Edgar Allen Poe's "Annabel Lee" and "The Raven" sound pretty good. These are fantastic stories made even creepier and more memorable by their poetic format.

    However, and this is a big 'however,' the audio on the two Poe tracks is really bad. The speaker's voice has echo added to it, and the effect is not good, partly because of the low bitrate, even in format 4. Those two tracks are a total loss.
