Mixed Bag

(3 stars)

Some of the stories and narrators in this book were terrific. However I skipped over a few articles that either weren't interesting to me or the narrators weren't to my taste. Overall I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more in this series.

Some funny stories, some not so much

(3 stars)

Thanks for the readers, you all did a great job. nevertheless, some stories were not that funny
