Review By Rochelle O'Gorman,The Hartford Courant,

"A British company that produces a superior product is Naxos AudioBooks, which marries literature with classical music. The audiobooks are housed in attractive plastic cases adorned with reproductions of well-known paintings. 'Classic Women's Short Stories' features the works of Katherine Mansfield, Kate Chopin and Virginia Woolf.
