Not particularly entertaining
Although the narrators did a fine job with the material, the stories were neither engaging or moving. The only technical issue I had with this selection was that there was little or no pause between stories, and the later stories had no introduction, which could be confusing. A few times, it took me a moment to realize that one story had finished and an entirely different one had started.

Miserable, dark and disturbing stories
After listening to the first half of this book, I simply had to put it away - forever! With each story I became more confused and depressed. The tales seemed to just end, out of the blue, leaving me stranded in a pool of despair. What point was each author trying to convey? Several naratives began with a brief explanation that would have been more useful at the end of each story. By the time I had finished each one, I simply didn't have the energy to rewind and re-listen to the synopsis to sort it out. I just wanted it to be over. Unless you enjoy reading torturous sagas, pass this one up.
