    "Thoroughly Enjoyable"

    After getting used to the narrator, I began to enjoy her style of reading, and I continued to listen to all 69 stories until the last one which I enjoyed as much as the first one.

    "Absolutely terrible performance"
    Would you try another book from the authors and/or Cathy Dobson?

    Not from Cathy Dobson . It is nearly impossible to follow the stories . Awfull performance


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cathy Dobson?

    Anybody.


    Do you think Unusual Short Stories needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I love short stories but with a different narrator
