    "Great Listen.."
    What made the experience of listening to The Classic Tales Podcast Season One the most enjoyable?

    BJ Harrison is one of my favorite narrators. I admire his mission to bring the Classics to all ages. There are some I've never taken the time for and others that I listen to over & over.

    "Thoroughly Enjoyable"

    I enjoy classic short stories and have several audiobook collections of them. Some of the older ones suffer from poor production quality. Some of the older and newer ones suffer from poor quality narration. Often the selections are higly redundant from one collection to the next. This audiobook, however, is one of my very favorites. The production quality is superb. The narrator is consistently imaginative and compelling. And, along with some of the standbys found in similar collections, this includes some inspired alternatives. "The Classic Tales Podcast" is thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining, and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys listening to classic literature.

    "Too macabre"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Classic Tales Podcast Season One to be better than the print version?

    Good, well-written and well-read but I don't appreciate horror. There was so much of it that I quit listening.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I listen for pleasure and relaxation. Most of these were horror stories.
