    "Another great selection of stories"

    This second collection of "Great Classic Stories" is just as rewarding as the first, with something for everyone, including comedy, tragedy, suspense, and romance.

    From Huxley's brassy lunchtime companion to the sad teller of Gilbert's love story, nearly every story reveals an unforgettable character or two, and the narrators are first-rate. I particularly enjoyed Bill Wallis and Simon Vance.

    Here are the stories in order:

    YOUNG GOODMAN BROWN by Nathaniel Hawthorne

    THE CASK OF AMONTILLADO by Edgar Allan Poe

    COUSIN WILLIAM by Harriet Beecher Stowe

    HOW I EDITED AN AGRICULTURAL PAPER by Mark Twain

    A PIECE OF STRING by Guy de Maupassant

    ANGELA, AN INVERTED LOVE STORY by W. S. Gilbert

    THE NIGHTINGALE AND THE ROSE by Oscar Wilde

    THE STORY OF AN HOUR by Kate Chopin

    A JURY OF HER PEERS by Susan Glaspell

    ARABY by James Joyce

    THE MARK ON THE WALL by Virginia Woolf

    THE INTERLOPERS by Saki

    HEAD AND SHOULDERS by F. Scott Fitzgerald

    THE STRANGER by Katherine Mansfield

    THE BLIND MAN by D. H. Lawrence

    NUNS AT LUNCHEON by Aldous Huxley

    "Entertaining!"

    This audio book would have been worth the purchase if only for the reading of Mark Twain's "How I Edited An Agricultural Paper." I bust up laughing every time I hear that story! However, this audio book is filled with great short stories and are sure to entertain and are read by a variety of great readers. I would recommend this to anyone!

    "Great Classic Stories II"

    The audible download does not itemize this book by each story so I have no way to find a specific story and play it. I see no index or table of contents to review to know titles, author, narrator, etc. Maybe I am missing something but that is a huge drawback.
