I have an enormous collection of short stories, but most are European. What I know about Chinese literature would fit in a thimble, so I certainly can't comment intelligently about these stories, nor the pronunciation of Chinese, etc.
But as a lover of perfectly crafted short stories, I enjoyed each one. For me these were exotic, unusual, and fascinating glimpses of another culture. ("The Jade Goddess" was my favorite). Additionally, Charlton Griffin is simply wonderful here, and I enjoyed the sound effects.
I'm starting Vol. 2 tonight.

This selection of classical Chinese short stories introduces English-speaking listeners to the best of traditional tales of China. They are read with outstanding characterisation, intonation and passion, transporting listeners to a foreign place and time. The strangeness, mystery and colour of China blends with attributes common to all humankind to build bridges between Western tales of antiquity and the Orient.
