    What would have made Ruthless Rhymes for Heartless Homes better?

    I don't consider this book good literature.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Patrick McManus is at the top of my wish list for fun.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The Narrator did a fine job - with a disappointing book


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I regret this purchase - including anyone knowing that I downloaded it.


    Any additional comments?

    Sure wish I had discovered the book was returnable before it was too late to GIVE IT BACK!! I like absurd, off-the-wall humor, but the book is not like the preview. I'm ashamed I fell for this one...
