    "Great collection of short stories"

    This is such a little collection of short stories. They are quick, but hold a nice punch!

    Really descriptive and engaging. My favorite was the first story "Geeks Rule". It really sets the tone for the collection. Wonderful story telling all around. Each story has its own little twist to keep the reader on their toes.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Basil Sands, who is also the author. I am not usually for authors reading their own books, unless it is a biography. This is an exception, because the author just happens to be a talented narrator as well. Who better to understand the voices and emotions of his characters. He has a great pace and solid energy throughout. A few voices get a little too high, but that is me nit-picking. I would definitely look for more of his work!

    Overall this is a great collection and I hope Mr Sands finds time to create more short stories.

    It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.

    "A Few Thoughts"

    A few thoughts. I'm impressed by the fact that Basil Sands writes, narrates, and publishes his own work. His work is original with lining up along present day events. The stories are pretty hard-core sci fi-ish with raunchy language. I think in the first story, "Geeks Rule" it's message would have gotten teh same point across without the derogatory wording. This audiobook was pretty intense and ambitious.

    I received this audiobook foc in exchange for an honest review.
