Messed up version

Would you listen to The Happy Prince and Other Stories (Unabridged Selections) again? Why?

I love this book and the audible performance was excellent. However, the version that's on here is messed up because within the Rocket story, it starts in the middle then goes to the beginning then replays the middle through to the end. It was very confusing the first time around. I asked Audible to fix it, but they never did.

Poor Quality

Audible.com dispatches books with a Bit Rate of 32KB ! (128Kb is the lowest Mpg3 Quality usually) which sounds like a 1920' telephone wire.

Stories that make you think Very sensitively told.

You can listen to these stories again and again. They make you laugh and make you cry - and you can't forget them. Anton Lesser is a joy to listen to.
