I give 5 ⭐ because these readers gave their time. 👍

Another one

(4 Sterne)

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.

Clever and well read stories

(5 Sterne)

An enjoyable set of stories that all have clever plots and that have held up well in time. All are well read as well. The best among them, in my opinion, would be the conversation with a mummy. A delightful premise and execution.

Good stories

(3 Sterne)

Any chapters read by Daniele you need to have them redone. His English is not very good.

A mixed set of ideas

(3 Sterne)

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

Not my favourite collection of stories or readers.
