This is one of the poorer compilations I have listened to. Some of the accents are too strong so that you can't really follow the story, and some of the recordings are so poor you can't follow the story (mic too close). Some are great tho, so it's still worth a listen, just be warned.

these 3 volumes contained some interesting stories and plots, ruined by narrator's who can't read, with accents so thick you couldn't understand them, reading way too fast and trying to read parts meant for the other sex. they need to get there qa people on the ball!

Could not get into stories at all. Did not finish book ,just was not for me. First book I failed to finish, readers were ok, it was selections I could not relate to.

some enjoyable plots

(3 Sterne)

Some interesting plots & characters, all were narrated (some recorded very low and / or too softly) but most were enjoyable enough for a first reading. I would not re-listen, however.

This collection has some interesting stories ("Found Guilty" was great), but the readings were very uneven. It is listenable, but not great.
