I purchased this audiobook expecting to enjoy a mature re-telling of these timeless tales. What I got was a goofy rendition that would be better suited for kids than adults. Furthermore, these fables are not unabridged, but have been made subject to dramatic license. Most important of all, the philosophical lesson or morale of the story is too ambiguous.
It was puerile.
I would do it completely different. I would change everything.
This audiobook should be clearly marked as a Children's book.
