Very good reader! Lovely character voices.

Sweet, Sad Stories

A typical collection of old fashioned fairytales. Although most of them are tragedies, I still enjoyed listening to them.

(5 stars)

The Young King is simply the best Wilde has ever written.

Nice reading of these short stories.

I found this narrator difficult to listen to. He needs to calm down. There is another version available that is much better.
