    "Classic stories, poorly read"

    These classic Jack London stories are engaging, if a little tedious in detail...at times. The problem here is the narration. Little to no inflection. In fact, it is difficult to tell when a story ends, as the reader moves on to the title of the next story without a pause, and with no change in voice or inflection while reading the title and starting the next story.
