Not my favourite collection of stories or readers.

the reader of Mex shouldn't read.

(0,5 Sterne)

the reader clearly isn't a native english speaker. it's unbearably awful. this isn't worth your time even if it is free. the stories all sucked. the reader of "putnam" smacks his lips so much it's awful. never read aloud again. the reader of "some words with a mummy did a good job tho.

mostly repeats but some new ones

(3,5 Sterne)

I’m working my way through these collections and less than half of these are new ones. Mostly these were in Collections 17 and 16 even! Some good readings and some less so.

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.

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.

mind boggling boring 💤 badly read outdated irritating readers
