(5 stars)

Fantastically read by a very engaged reader who seems to have put a serious amount of thought and work into each of the short stories! Great fun!

(4 stars)

After the abrupt endings of most of these short stories I felt there should have been more. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is an exception.

Hit or Miss

(3.5 stars)

Some good stories and some mediocre s stories. Good reader.

(4 stars)

Great reader, and excellent stories to listen to while doing other activities.

The narrator's characterization of women's voices is shrill.
