One of his better humorous writings, a well-crafted one-sided correspondence from a rejected suitor to his love.

Dramatized Radio Production, Not Unabridged Book

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 01-02-11

My rating is not a comment on the well-respected actors in this performance, it's a reflection of my disappointment when I realized this recording is not the unabridged book read by a single narrator but a short (approx 1 hour) dramatized production for radio. Now I know to check the file details before buying!
