I agree with another reviewer's headline: The chapters are not in order! Part 2 (file 2) Chapters 1 -7 should be The Sign of Four, Part 2 (part 2 of the story). It's not there. I didn't get to hear all of The Sign of Four. The manufacturer has to re-organize the audiobook, and then make sure the PDF file matches. POSITIVE COMMENT: The performance is fantastic.

These three stories are amongst the finest by Katherine Mansfield, a woman highly regarded as one of the greatest writers of short stories. In these bittersweet tales, she gently reveals the emotions and feelings within the lives of apparently unexceptional people. Her stories offer a sensitive insight into human behaviour, achieved not by creating scenes of high drama, but by revealing the motives and thoughts of believable characters.

Where does Katherine Mansfield rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The reading by Eve Karpf was very well done and pleasant to listen to. I am going to search for other performances by Eve Karpf.

Any additional comments?

It would be helpful if the book description listed the titles of the short stories included in this performance.
