    Seis histórias clássicas de quatro autores consagrados no gênero. A gravação e a qualidade dos narradores são impecáveis, e a sonoplastia é muito rica e adequada ao clima com que se pretende cercar as narrativas. Os senões são algumas histórias estarem resumidas, e os títulos das novelas e contos não estarem presentes nas gravações. Bom entretenimento para ouvir no trânsito.

    2.5 rounded up to 5 I didn't realized when I picked this up that it was a full cast dramatization. That's not typically my thing, so I'm not surprised I didn't think much of it. I do wish I could find a full cast list, though. My favorite actor was the primary narrator in The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allen Poe. 2.5 rounded up to 5 I didn't realized when I picked this up that it was a full cast dramatization.

    A good audiobook with several classic tales. Each story has a full cast, which turned out to be really good.

    The tales themselves are classic and really good. This audio production of them was disappointing to say the least. Usually I cut audio books a lot of slack when they do extra effects beyond just reading. But I just couldn't get past the awkward music that lasted too long, the over-the-top maniacal laughter of Mr. Hyde, etc. It was just too much. Seems like maybe it was done for a middle school or high school audience with too much emphasis on being engaging.

Seems like maybe it was done for a middle school or high school audience with too much emphasis on being engaging. I'm suspicious if it's really fully unabridged. A lot of narration and skipping past details makes me think it's actually well abridged. I don't know the source material well enough to know 100% though. My suggestion is to skip this book and get these same stories from other books.

    Took this out of my work's lending library for my recent car trip. Listened to The Hound of the Baskervilles first and my boyfriend and I really enjoyed it. However, we were sorely disappointed in the rest of the stories. The dramatization was great! Though the cheesiness made us chuckle at places. We both wished that the tapes had been more up front about the stories being abridged. Though my coworker made a good point. Since they are fully dramatized you don't need a lot of the description oth Took this out of my work's lending library for my recent car trip.

Since they are fully dramatized you don't need a lot of the description other than a narrator setting the scene every once in a while. Which would explain why they seemed so short.

    Randomly picked this while searching for audiobooks to listen to on my commute. I've read a lot of the stories before, so I skipped Jekyll & Hyde and the last two Poe stories. But The Gold Bug has always been one of my favorites and the guy who reads the audiobook did a pretty good job with that one. I was excited to listen to The Hound of the Baskervilles because I've never read any Sherlock Holmes before, but I have to say, I wasn't particularly impressed.
