I wasted a credit by buying this. I already had these stories on Quantum Solace. The stories are great, but I'm leaving the "rate" at one star because I was deceived.
I enjoyed the first chapter or two, but the story has got fuzzy and I'm not struggling with it. There is more enjoyable stories to listen to. Maybe the print version is better for this book. However, I do not feel like buying it.
It is important to have crystal clear audio. I am listening again with a new device and enjoying these short stories *much* more.
I feel as much as I like Laura Ingraham; I will enjoy this book more as a print version (digital so I can raise the font size).
While Simon Vance is wonderful and brings the characters alive, I find I dread what comes next in the story. I enjoyed David Copperfield, but I cannot get in to NN.
These stories were included in Quantum Solace which I already had downloaded. These are great of course, but one should be told that they are included with Quantum Solace.
Besides regret over the download of the abridged version, I will not select Frank Muller as a narrator again. I guess I am spoiled by the talent of many others who are able to pronounce words and phrases beautifully and perform a variety of "voices." Another reviewer mentioned the style of Muller and I thought I could still enjoy it. I see now what that reviewer means; Mullers performance just wears one down and one feels punished for listening.
When I got to the part about the torture by the Indians, I stopped listening.
