Hadn't read this story for years and was intrigued about how I would find it being read to me.
Loved it and enjoyed the narrator.
Such a wonderful story when life seems just too "adult".

Sound was really bad although I expected it would have suffered some aging, but as it is an unkown play to me I feel that I MISSED some of the story. Especially in the last 15 minutes.
