    "Good colection"

    I'm not surprised that the other reviews are mixed. Mystery short stories are a bit different. This collection is much better than average. The narrations were also fine, which i better than average for a collection. I have 2 stories in other collections. (Blue Cross/Bluebeard's Bathtub). I recommend this for those who like mystery collections.

    "Great stories if you're looking to punish yourself"

    I tried three different stories from this book and couldn't get past the first ten minutes of either one. Neither of the books sparked my interest in the beginning. I won't commit an hour to something that bores me in the first few minutes of listening.

    Would you listen to Classic Crime Short Stories again? Why?

    I enjoyed this overall. Some of the stories were better than others. I found myself skipping a couple of them, as they were slightly dull. But generally they were dark, funny, unpredictable, twisted and rather savage.
