What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
A different narrator would have made the difference for me.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Classic Tales of Hope and Courage?
Behrman's masterpiece was very unexpected.
How could the performance have been better?
Well, I feel the acting of the voices was very much over acted. He was loudly over emphasizing words then, for overly dramatic effects he would whisper. Several times, I had to turn up the volume really high because his voice was so soft and then unexpectedly, he would almost shout. I still don't know what happens at the very end of Jack London's "To Build a Fire".
It was like taking Tony Robbins word emphasis, giving it to William Shatner then telling him to read it to children around the fireplace. Very awkward.
What character would you cut from Classic Tales of Hope and Courage?
I wouldn't cut any character from this book.
What did you like best about Classic Tales of Hope and Courage? What did you like least?
Great stories grossly overacted by the reader.
What did you like best about this story?
Could not get through the first story - presentation too painful to listen to.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Daniel H. Vimont?
Was Classic Tales of Hope and Courage worth the listening time?
Any additional comments?
