Evelyn Waugh sampler, just short stories-

Very confusing, frustrating to listen to. I kept thinking I'd missed something until I read the other reviews. "Complete Stories" a very misleading title. Waugh is my favorite author. Favorite book: Decline and Fall.

Chips from the Master's Bench

What made the experience of listening to The Complete Stories of Evelyn Waugh the most enjoyable?

The narrator is top notch. Couldn't be better.

If you’ve listened to books by Evelyn Waugh before, how does this one compare?

Good, but not great. Read this one last.

Which scene was your favorite?

"Scott-King's Modern Europe" was just brilliant. Vintage Evelyn Waugh.

If you could take any character from The Complete Stories of Evelyn Waugh out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Not a one of them. They're all perfectly awful.

MORE than actual print book!

Great set of stories. I had downloaded this awhile back, and occasionally listen to it as I'm trying to fall asleep...decided to buy the paperback as I keep missing the ends of stories as I fall asleep! Well, what I realized one day while listening to the Audible version is that there is extra stuff on it that is not in the print book! After what matches up to be the final story in the print book, there are, on the Audible book, several stories, which the narrator titles "Juvenalia." Yes, these are stories that Waugh wrote starting at the age of 10. They are listed on his Wikipedia page..there are 14 of them. So it's great that Audible and/or whoever originally produced this put these on here.
