Lovely Stories and Superb Narrators

Oscar Wilde was too great for this world. These short stories of Fairy Tales are superbly read and I was delighted and pleasantly surprised to hear Elaine Stritch’s telling of the last story, The Actress. I did not see her credited with this so I had not expected it! These are timeless tales of empathy and all the other human nature observations. I only have one complaint; the loudness is variable with each story so after hearing what I think was Dame Judy Dench, which I had to crank to 11, I was blasted out of my chair with the next narrator. So be careful when listening as the volume levels, fluctuate!
