great book but not as advertised

This book is narrated superbly by valentine dyall. Anyone familiar with the bbc radio series "appointment with fear" will recognise his oaken tones & cut glass vowels. The prose, being du Maurier is practically flawless and this would have been a 5 star review had the book contained all of the stories listed in the publisher's description. The printed volume contains 9 stories, the audiobook contains 5. "The pool", "the apple tree", "the blue lenses" & "the chamois" are all omitted. This is therefore not an unabridged recording as stated. Very disappointing for that reason.

Interesting

Interesting, though I enjoyed the stories to variable extent. Narrator was fine - not exceptional, but solid. Not as good as her longer work, but worth checking out.
