The writing in these stories is wonderful, but the casting could not be worse. There are about two good readers in the whole book. I had to strain to get through the others. Loved the story about the camp for kids with sleep disorders. I particularly noticed a lot of mispronounced words in this audiobook, which was really distracting. I would read this one, not listen.

I like stories with unreal aspects such as time travel, vampires, reptilian monsters, space aliens. But this set of short stories was not enjoyable at all. Each story just stopped ... there are no conclusions, no sense of understanding, no connection with the characters.
I ordered this book because someone on NPR recommended it (Maureen Corrigan who reviews books regularly). I will be very careful about taking her advice in the future.
