Glad for the compilation

This is the first I’ve listened to/ read these stories. I’m glad they’ve been put together in this compilation. I’m not finished listening to the stories, but this is where audiobooks really shine for me. It gives me an opportunity to listen to books I’d otherwise not have time to read.

This is the first book I have listened to by this narrator ( Jonathan Waters ) and I would gladly listen to another. He does female voices very well. I am definitely aware I’m being read to, yet he is pleasant to listen to and has a nice cadence to his narration.

There are no explicit sex scenes, excessive violence or swearing.

Classic stories deserve a better storyteller...

I am a fan of Edith Wharton and wanted to listen to her classic stories while driving in the author's native New York and New England. However, I could barely get through Ethan Frome due to the narration. Being familiar with the story as well as a frequent audio/'Audible' listener, I found the quality of this reading void of depth and range. The male narrator using falsetto to imitate female voices was especially distracting. An engaging narration is why we listen. Otherwise, we don't.

Well read, monumental novel.

Though the women’s voices are sometimes completely over the top. Not sure that Wharton had imagined them to sound that way. And the French mimicking is at first completely unintelligible until one understands that the voice actor must have skipped all French classes (M. Ree-vee-air - whatever happend to Monsieur? The choo-y-le-ries? Place-day-In-valli-dees?).

Edith Wharton Collection

I liked this compilation.I got into the second book better than book 1.Since it was written over 100 years ago it takes a bit to understand.In the age of innocence a divorce seems to be the worst thing a woman can ask for.She had to sue her husband. In House of Mirth we find a woman looking for a man to keep her..Ethan Frome seemed to be a stand alone winters tale.. Jonathan Waters was a fine narrator.I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.'

Edith Wharton ruined by Narration

It sounded like it was being read by an app with an american accent and with the intonations constantly in the wrong places

Awful narrator

Absolutely awful with female voices, a pity and a waste

I was really looking forward to this
