Good Stories...well read.
Wow. Hard to believe one reviewer and I were listening to the same book. I thought the stories were excellent and the reader did a very good job. One of the best audiobooks I've heard.
The variety of stories.
Great job with the many voices.
To each his own I guess but hard to see how someone could pan a book like this.
Not worth your time
There are few positive things to be said about this audio book.
First, the narrator says everything in the same rushed tone. The different voices he uses are laughably bad. There is very little silence between books (to be fair, I believe that's more of the producers' fault than anything). You may be listening to the end of one story and in the next breath he's on to the next.
Second, the stories are just terrible. Very little actual storytelling, very little "visuals" or descriptions, and everything has a twist ending that you can see coming a mile off. The stories are a bad combination of 50's science fiction schlock and poorly thought-out Twilight Zone episodes.
Third, the audio quality is terrible. There is a high pitched squeal throughout and even other noises (beeping? voices?). I would expect this sort of poor quality from something ripped from cassette and posted on a bittorrent site, not from Audible.
All in all, I didn't finish "reading" this book. In fact, I gave up about 5 hours in. I'll be returning it to Audible.
Yes, but not these stories.
