I was very disappointed in this audio book. When I chose it, I did not listen to the audio sample. That was my fault and it will not happen again. I picked this book because of the publisher's summary and it received great reviews from the few listeners who wrote reviews.
The wording was very annoying for me. Due to the differences in pronunciation and jargon between the UK and USA, I spent many moments getting pissed off about words like 'knickers' and 'herbs'. In the USA, the 'h' in 'herbs' is SILENT. That wouldn't be a problem for listeners in the UK. The summary mentions nothing about the author being from the UK.
Even when I was actively trying to listen, the stories were mainly back ground noise. They did not entertain me. The endings were abrupt and I spent most of the time trying to figure out how the characters got from point A to point B. I know short stories aren't supposed to have all of the details expected from a full length novel, but the story should still flow smoothly.
I would not recommend this audio book.
