I was excited about this collection, but I could not get past the narrator. Her pace and inflection led me to focus on her voice and style of narration at the expense of the stories. I couldn't get past it, and ended up quitting this book after only a couple of tales.

They just can't write like this any more

After listening to authors with a mastery of the English language it makes it hard to read contemporary fiction.
this collection had a few stories I have heard before but they don't get old.
I wish my command of the language was half a good so that I could give an adequate review. the stories were good sometimes predictable but with these it is the journey not the destination that counts.
the narration was suburb.
I thoroughly enjoyed the listen
