Disappointing at most

Would you try another book from the authors and/or the narrators?

The voices reading the different stories were pretty good but the stories themselves rather disappointing and only one or two enjoyable ones. My partner also read it and was not impressed.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

After going through the book the ending was as expected and didn't amount to much.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Not bad in some stories, quite irritating in others.

Do you think The Best American Erotica 1997 (Unabridged Selections) needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I would hope ANY follow-up would be an improvement.
