I got this little classic book for free as an audiobook from Audible. They're cool like that. It was extremely boring and the story was hard to follow. Part of this is because the story was just so odd. I could care less about the characters in this book. I was not interested in the story at any moment even once. The entire thing bored me. If it had not been so short I would not have finished it.
It was narrated by Julia Whelan and she is a pro and did a fantastic job. Great narration - but no narration, no matter how fantastic, could save these stories for me.
