The fables of Aesop have become one of the most enduring traditions of European culture, ever since they were first written down nearly two millennia ago. Aesop was reputedly a tongue-tied slave who miraculously received the power of speech; from his legendary storytelling came the collections of prose and verse fables scattered throughout Greek and Roman literature. First published in English by Caxton in 1484, the fables and their morals continue to charm modern readers: who does not know the story of the tortoise and the hare, or the boy who cried wolf?

Obviously you're not getting this for a story
It's not the most entertaining listen for long stretches, but they could have got someone a little more entertaining. What was disappointing is that you have moments of the narrator clearing their throat in the recording. Which definitely affects the performance and overall rating for me. Not a great addition to the Audible collection.
