    1. Uneven selection of mysteries. Some of them were good, others not so much. Some authors I've never heard of and enjoyed, others I've heard of and didn't enjoy. But with a selection of short stories by different authors in different time periods, that is usually the case.

    2. This was an Audible buy.First of all, I love the mystery short story. Some of these stories were absolutely fantastic. "The Purloined Letter" by Poe was a great surprise. I thoroughly enjoyed both the writing and the reading. Although I am not a fan of Dicken "Hunted Down" had a brevity to it that allowed him to shine. I have read the Holmes mystery "Silver Blaze" which Chesterton considers it Doyle's greatest and indeed it has a most peculiar result. Israel Zangwill's "Cheating the Gallows" was [...]

    3. I thoroughly enjoyed these mystery short-stories from the late 1800s. The writing styles from that time were so rich and full of interesting adjectives. My favorite short-story was a Sherlock Holmes mystery about a murder within a community of people who took care of race horses. The outcome was so surprising and the plot was entertaining and funny.

    4. Great Classic Mysteries is a perfect description for this audiobook. The first story is The Purloined Letter by Edgar Allan Poe; then there are stories by Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, G. K. Chesterton, O. Henry, and others. Some of these are my favorite characters and stories. Poe’s C. Auguste Dupin (the star of the world’s first detective stories) and Chesterton’s Father Brown are here. For someone who is interested in early mysteries, including one of the first detective stor [...]

    5. A mixed bag of pure gems and real snoozes. audiobook note: Similarly, some of the narrators are brilliant (Bronson Pinchot! Who knew?) and others ruin the stories.

    6. I didn't enjoy this audiobook as much as I thought I would. I'm not sure if it was the quality of the CD, the stories, or the readers' voices.

    7. Fun "reads". I'm a sucker for an old fashioned mystery, and these stories were just that. Not bad to pass the time while commuting to/from work.
