Story is rushed and very short

Half of the length of this recording is music at the end. Ewan McGregor does a fine job narrating, but he goes through the story very quickly. A slower pace would let more atmosphere develop. If your mind wanders at all, you’ll miss the story. I was surprised when the story reached its end at five minutes, and the remaining five minutes was taken up by music. The music is fine enough, but this would’ve been a lot better if the story had taken up all ten minutes.

A beautiful and sad story

like you might expect. It is a fantastic short story worth listening to. Beautiful, sad and painfully realistic...
