Reviews - What do customers think about The Canterbury Tales?
surprised and very displeased Oct 23, 2006
This is advertised and unabriged. What I received was Volume three of what may be a complete version, but it was not advertised as one of a series by any means. In addition, I was very sorry that it was recorded in modern english rather than the original middle english. If I had known, I would not have ordered and am pursuing a refund.
Volume III Jun 23, 2004
Not a complete version.. only has SOME of the tales. I didnt realize that when I bought it!
