Reviews - Please select the tabs below to change the source of reviews.
During the story "The Cricket on the Hearth," another story comes on at the same time making it impossible to listen to either story. The second story finally stops after a few minutes and the original story is allowed to finish in peace.
Otherwise, not as interesting a collection of stories as volumes 1 and 2, but read by the narrator very enjoyably.

A Mixed Bag
Frankenstein and Diamond as Big as the Ritz were well done, with convincing, non-intrusive narration. The other stories are a real mixed bag of quality both in selection and narration.
