One of the worst anthology ever

I was able to listen to the first two minutes for each story, than I fast forwarded to the next.

There is a reason

There is a reason these stories didn't make it to the short list. And the collection itself has way too many questions. Just a couple of stories are worth the time, not to mention money. but!!! If you are into politically correct and culturally balanced mixes, you are in for a treat. You even get a Latino gay boy story.
