(5 stars)

Rest in peace, Beth Thomas. Thank you for all the joy and entertainment that you have given us through Librivox over the years. You will be dearly missed.

Some stories were boring, excellent reading though


(4.5 stars)

I thoroughly enjoyed the reading, some stories were quite basic to be honest.
