    Great Classic Stories

    I enjoyed the ten stories in this audiobook. Probably my favorite narrator was Patrick Fraley, The way he tells stories makes you feel like you are right there sitting around the campfire while he's telling the story. Highly recommend if you are a fan of any of these authors. Was another one of my picks from Audible Plus.

    Interesting and descriptive stories

    These short stories were interesting, and the "in depth descriptions" of the action and scenes, draws the listener in. The speaker was easy to understand but quiet and low. Some stories are similar and predictable.

    Boring!

    Never finished. Stories were not compelling at all. The price as too much for this book.
