Christmas Short Works 2011

(4 stars)

For the past few days I've been listening to this collection in small portions at a time and I have to say that for the most part I have been entertained by most of what I could understand, as not all of the stories in this collection are in the English language. I think that I chose to have a listen to this to get a closer look at a big part of my own nation's culture and traditions. Its my opinion that the source materials, the actual written stories themselves are of a five star level but its also my opinion that some of the reading in Christmas Short Works 2011 could have been better. I give Christmas Short Works 2011 four stars.
