    When Paul Auster was asked to join NPR's Weekend All Things Considered program to tell stories, he turned the proposition on its head: he would let the stories come to him. He invited listeners to submit brief, true-life anecdotes about events that touched their lives.

    Alejandro Flores says: "Not as expected"
    "chicken soup for the NPR soul"
    Overall

    I thought I was getting a nice collection of stories, some funny, some sad. Instead I got hours of boredom. The section on Love was absolutely the worst. I kept listening all the way to the end, hoping to find something redeeming, and while there were two or three midly entertaining bits, I felt like I was listening to one very loong episode of Dr. Phil. Nothing challenging, everyone in the stories is either good, or forgiven for their minor transgressions, and everyone learns something life affirming from their experiences. I take back the Dr. Phil comment, it was more like a extended Brady Bunch reunion.
