Publisher's Summary

Fairy tales are rarely written exclusively for children. They offer a variety of strong characters, themes and challenges as well as an insight into the mystery of the soul. These tales often contain profound truths that survived many hundreds of years and a universal appeal that makes them both enjoyable and enlightening. Modern concepts of mindfulness can often be found as original themes among these tales.

This volume includes the following stories and tales: 'Anyta' by Anton Chekhov, 'The Devoted Friend' by Oscar Wilde, 'Polinka' by Anton Chekhov, and 'The Sphinx Without a Secret' by Oscar Wilde.

Read in English, unabridged.

Appallingly bad - total waste of money

The narration is so poor I couldn't keep listening. The narrator sounds like a computer generated voice, and ruins any chance of absorbing let alone enjoying these tales. Never been so disappointed in an audiobook, and so angry at the waste of money. Feel cheated.
