    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.

    Equivalent of dumpster diving: gross but free

    Pros: free.
    Cons: Are they the greatest American stories? Uh: No. Does Audible/AmazonScaresMe include these as free and “great” but not preface the casual use of racist and sexist language used throughout? Nope. Amazon can’t take a bathroom break so I’m guessing a thoughtful context foreword is out. Is it the same old lame old canon of long-dead, presumably straight (but, hey, probably not) white men? Yep. It’s boring, inaccurate, and just…no. Stephen Crane’s “I Want Life” is the best of the lot, in part because there are no female characters and the narrator does not, therefore, use a toddler-age falsetto for grown women’s voices. And it’s also just a riveting, brutal, minimalist innovation that still holds fast. Please note: casual use of highly racist language in that story, as well, and that should be discussed/considered.

    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.

    Pretty good

    I enjoyed some of the stories. Others were not as good. I would like to return this selection.

    Boring!

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