I listened to these sets in the "old days" when it cost about $40 on cassettes. Glad to see these Volumes are now on Audible as some of my tapes are broken and the price is certainly right. Great selections ( all three volumes ) and very well read.
I have read works by most of these writers that I enjoyed very much. These stories focus on character description, but the plots are flat. Maybe we have experienced so many great stories written in the last hundred years, that these from the 1800s come across as amateur attempts. The only truly great story here is "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge". You would be better off trying any of the new books that are available.
