Description

This is an Audiobook edition of The Canterbury Tales.
***********************************************
IMPORTANT NOTE: THIS APP NEEDS INTERNET TO WORK
***********************************************
Would not make any sense to include all the audio in the android apk file as it would go up to 600 Mb or more !, so all the audio is streamed from Internet. That is the reason you need Internet connection 3G (better use WIFI) with enough and stable bandwith to hear the audio. Hope you like it. If you do, please rate it and i will keep adding more audiobooks.

The Canterbury Tales is a collection of stories written in Middle English by Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century (two of them in prose, the rest in verse). The tales, some of which are originals and others not, are contained inside a frame tale and told by a group of pilgrims on their way from Southwark to Canterbury to visit the shrine of Saint Thomas Becket at Canterbury Cathedral.
The themes of the tales vary, and include topics such as courtly love, treachery, and avarice. The genres also vary, and include romance, Breton lai, sermon, beast fable, and fabliau. The characters, introduced in the General Prologue of the book, tell tales of great cultural relevance.
