Don't bother unless skipping to Juliet Stevenson's

What did you like best about Best of Women's Short Stories, Volume 3? What did you like least?

Best: Juliet Stevenson's turning even the most mundane story into something I want to hear the end of.
Least: The poor spacing/lack of a beat between stories (inconsistent), the sharp/piercing voices of one of the other narrators, the inconsistency of sound, and the stories themselves are forgettable.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Juliet Stevenson is the one who is a standout among the rest - positively perfect.

Could you see Best of Women's Short Stories, Volume 3 being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
