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

Wonderfully written and read

I am so glad I didn't read the other reviews on this book before I bought it. I thought it was very well read and very easy to understand. The stories were interesting. As with all books with a lot of different writers some stories I liked better then others. I'm so glad I bought this book.

Don't waste your time!

Only managed 3 mins of this, the narrator Cathy Dobson is awful, her voice is grating and monotonous and words not pronounced properly. What a total waste of my money, 30 hrs and 55 mins of book I'll never hear
