I am not joking, there is a vulgar rap song hidden in this audiobook. The entire chapter 18 is a rap song.... has nobody else listened to this?
Aside from that, the narration is utterly terrible.

"White Nights" is the third major Dostoyevsky short story that everyone should read or listen to, along with "A Faint Heart" and "The Christmas Tree and Wedding". The story contains a series of Winesburg, Ohio-like moments: a woman and man meet on the First Night; proceed to meet again on the Second and Third, almost fall in love, and at the last minute the former lover of the woman returns to take her away. But the point is that the man had a glorious moment....

Worst narrator ever.... seriously. Ever! Don’t buy this, it’s seriously painful to listen to. The story is good, of course.

Alice sees the other side of the Looking Glass, and enters another world of whimsical enchantment. She encounters argumentative chessmen, Jabberwocky monsters, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and some very insolent flowers. Carroll continues the development of his Wonderland in this second, and many feel richer, adventure of Alice.

Bj Harrison is an excellent orator and has a large variety of different voices for the characters. Well done!
