Huge disappointment

What disappointed you about Rescue?

The whole thing! I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!

Would you ever listen to anything by Edited by Dorcas S. Miller and Clint Willis again?

No

How could the performance have been better?

Performance could have been better if the stories were better. The audio was nothing like the synopsis stated.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

n/a

Any additional comments?

As I said: I want my money back.
