A good range of stories.

I enjoyed the stories by Chekhov, Tolstoy, and Dickens. All done in about an hour too.

Excellent Selection

One issue with this audiobook is that the story titles and authors aren't always given at the beginning, nor are there chapter titles. The stories are (in order):

James Joyce - After the Race
Anton Chekhov - A Transgression
Leo Tolstoy - Three Questions
Kate Chopin - The Story of an Hour
Charles Dickens - The Child's Story
Saki - The Open Window

This is an excellent selection overall, with the stories by Chekhov, Tolstoy and Saki being especially notable. I literally laughed out loud during A Transgression, and was deeply impressed by Three Questions. A bit expensive for only an hour, but still recommended.
