A rich and varied collection of classic short stories by British writers:
Plus over 25 more great short story classics.
narration is awful and completely detracts from some good stories. very disappointed. I should have returned this book straight away.

I have tried listening to these stories but the voice/reader is so bad, it's irritating.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No. The delivery becomes increasingly irritating the more one listens.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The intonation is arbitrary, insensitive to the content.
Did British Classic Short Stories inspire you to do anything?
Read in slilence.
Any additional comments?
The mismatch is a shame.
I enjoyed some of the stories in this collection, but found myself being lulled to sleep by the narrator's unvaried and rather sing-song voice. I feel that another narrator could have done more justice to these classic short stories. Cathy Dobson does, however, succeed in voicing the various characters
