    "classic but not impressive"

    This exposed me to some classic American writers but I can't say I enjoyed the stories. The plots seemed stupid, the narrators left a lot to be desired, and of course, the sound quality wasn't the greatest. Worth it if you want to broaden your literary perspective but not much more.
