Publisher's Summary

Enchanting, tragic, and hilarious fairytales for adults and children grace this audio. An initial glance might lead you to assume that these are satirical versions of classic Christmas ghost stories. However, beneath the humorous stories involving ghosts, repentant sinners, miracles, and good peasants who find well-deserved happiness, lies a psychological undercurrent that sharpens the sense of intrigue and plot movement. Often this is aided by the unrelenting social exposure of the authors who always understood how intangible the bourgeois paradise truly was. Even today, idyllic dreams of tolerance, equality, and the triumph of justice have failed to materialize. Perhaps that is why people continue to read these classic stories while the snow falls outside and the lights glow on the Christmas tree.

Not Recommended

I did not finish any of the stories in this collection. Performance quality is slow and awkward. Usually, I can increase the speed and get through books performed slowly. That didn't work well for this.

I like it!

I have several Christmas-themed books at home, but there has never been an audio collection – now there is. New Year's mood has come!!!
