The Canterbuy Tales (Jan. '08)

I was supposed to read part of The Canterbury Tales, by Goeffrey Chaucer back in high school, but I never did. So when I needed a new audio book to listen to and saw that this title was available, I thought I'd give it a shot. So far it is not bad! The story is interesting and I really want to know what happens, but I'm not sure I can do all 18 hours of it. The rhyming verse means that I have to pay more attention than usual in order to understand what's going on and I don't know that I'll have the time at work to do that ... but we'll see!

Update: Ok I am really enjoying this! I can see that it would be hard to read, but it is very enjoyable to listen to. I've heard The Knight's Tale and am now on The Miller's Tale.
