A gripping collection of the very best classic mystery and adventure stories.
And 30 other riveting tales.

I was excited about this collection, but I could not get past the narrator. Her pace and inflection led me to focus on her voice and style of narration at the expense of the stories. I couldn't get past it, and ended up quitting this book after only a couple of tales.
After listening to authors with a mastery of the English language it makes it hard to read contemporary fiction.
this collection had a few stories I have heard before but they don't get old.
I wish my command of the language was half a good so that I could give an adequate review. the stories were good sometimes predictable but with these it is the journey not the destination that counts.
the narration was suburb.
I thoroughly enjoyed the listen
SV Wings of the Dawn
This narrator/reader mispronounced many words because she fails to bother with the context. it is as though she is a mere automaton with incomplete and erroneous programing. she needs to learn to pay attention as she reads. many times she seems to be reading line-by-line rather than sentence-by-sentence. I have made similar evaluations in previous books narrated by this person, so she is consistently making the same mistakes.
"Don't waste your time!"
Only managed 3 mins of this, the narrator Cathy Dobson is awful, her voice is grating and monotonous and words not pronounced properly. What a total waste of my money, 30 hrs and 55 mins of book I'll never hear
