      "Great Collection of Unexpected/Horror"

      A great collection of classic tales with a twist or horror theme to them. (Although I'm sure you worked that out from EA Poe.) Well read, and a pleasure to listen to.

      "Great stories but droning voice!"
      Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

      Super stories but very wearing voice.


      What did you like best about this story?

      All good - a few odd ones.


      Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Cathy Dobson?

      Samantha Bond, Dawn French, any actor or actress with a less droning voice.


      Could you see The World's Best Classic Short Stories being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

      Too many - would take years.


      Any additional comments?

      Good value for money
