2 very different stories

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. There are two entirely different stories. One is very dark and ominous and one is more of a mystery.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tony Lovett in The Cuckoo Club. He seemed like so many of the people I work with.

What does David J. Shaughnessy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He portrays each character so well (not only with different voices) that he brings each character to life. He artistically develops each character's personality, and by the end, you feel that you almost know these people in the story.

If you could take any character from Two Short Stories from H. E. Joyce out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Jemma in the Cuckoo Club. She seems like she would be a lot of fun!

Any additional comments?

Both stories were very enjoyable.
