Publisher's Summary

Guy de Maupassant was an absolute master of the short story genre, delighting in clever plotting, concise style, and efficient storytelling, which he used to produce stunning pieces in a very condensed format. Maupassant specialized in realism, with its sharp criticism of lower human nature and society, and fantastic, although his ventures in the supernatural are often used as an implicit symptom of the protagonists' troubled minds - he was absolutely fascinated with psychiatry, which was nascent at the time.

He produced more than 300 short stories; these six are a dive into the thrilling world of Maupassant. This audiobook contains:

  • The Necklace;
  • The Man with the Pale Eyes;
  • An Uncomfortable Bed;
  • Ghosts;
  • Fear;
  • The Confession.

I've Heard Better Stories

I've heard better stories sitting in my barber's chair. Had high hopes but ended with the feeling that someone put together the authors afterthought to make a few bucks. The performance was good. Glad I did not pay too much.
