I don't like the line spaces though. Too clumsy for me! But well printed! Nicely Designed! Well Binding!
The World's Greatest Short Stories (Dover Thrift Editions)
On the other hand, if you're looking for tightly plotted stories - I'd look elsewhere. As these are works by 'the greats' so to speak, they tend to substitute plot for deep ideas, beautiful description and the inner psyche of their characters - which is okay - if you like that sort of thing...
I got this collection hoping there would be some good short stories to read to my weekly audiance of the elderly blind people near where i live. Alas, they were not impressed by this collection. And i think they are right to some extent. Maybe some short stories are best read with eyes rather than be read aloud??
I am still finding my reading voice, which could be partly to blame?
But for that price for all these stories it seemed worth a buy, but i think we are going to keep it on the shelf as a 'last resort'. OOOOppps!
