Better than usual anthology
- Linda B
Good stories, narrators, Bad production
Yes, several of the stories were thought provoking and I would like to listen again and see if there was anything I missed.
The stories are well chosen and I thought the narrators did a decent job, although they came off a bit flat or uneven on occasion. However, the audio quality was just horrible. Everything was understandable, but it sounded as though the entire book was recorded over a phone using a mono tape recorder. I think this detracted from my enjoyment of the first story, but I got used to it. Overall, worth the money and the time. I will be looking some of these authors up for more.
