A mixed set of ideas

(3 stars)

Some a bit dry. Some thought provoking. Overall a good read.

Another one

(4 stars)

Plenty of good ones, although if you are OCD/systematic like me you will find a fair number are repeats from earlier collections, possibly using different narrators. I don't really mind especially given the zero cost.

(5 stars)

I give 5 ⭐ because these readers gave their time. πŸ‘

mind boggling boring πŸ’€ badly read outdated irritating readers
