Omfg

this was not worth the $3 I paid for it, understanding that that is the minimum price that can be charged well fair enough. But the analysis that the end was actually fascinating especially since I obtained this story for my own personal research is a writer and so for me it actually was worth it, but if you are simply interested in the works of Ambrose Bierce there has to be an anthology somewhere on Audible that contains more works by Ambrose Bierce instead of the singular short story because the actual short story in this simple 29 minutes of narrative is actually only 13 minutes whereas he goes to the second half of the narrative talking about the actual history of the story and its impact on literature which was very valuable for me but if you're simply looking for a narrated version of the story you should look elsewhere his narrative style is very similar to Captain Kirk in a really bad First Take
