I will and have recommended this audio book to friends. I enjoyed the variety of topics and subjects. The range of handling them ranged from serious to hilarious.
I'm not sure I can compare this book to others. It is a good selection of excellent short stories by these authors.
The variety of narrators gave good readings. I enjoy listening to good narrations. They help to get different insight into the stories. I enjoy readings that pad out my mental picture of any stories characters. Some narrators brought too strong an accent to their stories. For me that detracted from the reading.
I bought this book early on August 5, 2014. At the time of my writing this review I have listened to it twice. A few stories got listened to two or three times before going to the next one.
This is a good collection of short stories by these authors. I enjoyed the variety of narrators. Most of the narrators did an excellent job. At times a story had special effects added. The effects added to the performance without over running it. I suggest to anyone who enjoys these authors should consider this audiobook.
