I am brutally honest. Popular, love everything they read, reviewers are scared to go neg. and risk their ranking. It's your money!!!
Yes, I will admit that I was drawn to this because of the cover. The girl is fairly plain looking, but you put a veil on her and have her topless and I will notice, mostly have her naked. I then read the reviews and at the time it was five stars from one customer. I bought it.
I found all seven stories to be interesting and comparable to Steve Vernon. Course you probably don't know who he is either. These are basically off the wall stories with sex and violence and open ended finishes. Anderson leaves it up to you to image what happens to these characters after the stories. These are stories about the lower end of society (similar to Rowland's White Trash novels.) These people live in apartments or trailer homes. They drive beat up old cars and go to the Laundromat. None of the stories were great and none were bad. The last story is mostly porn and I mean hard core porn.
Andersen Prunty narrated his own work. One reviewer hated his narration. It was obviously amateurish, but I did not have a problem with it. No story has more then two characters, except the last one has three, so doing different voices was not a problem. Prunty was probably just trying to save money and get his stuff out there. He wrote it, so he should know how he wants it read.
Nobody i know.
I would have hired a talented narrator.
Some authors should just stick to writing. The narration of this book was awful!! He sounded like a bored robot most of the time. I could only stand to listen to the first story,then i had to shut it off. I will be requesting a refund.
These stories might actually be good. I will be buying them so i can read them myself.
