On any particular day, thousands upon thousands of people pass through New York City's Grand Central Terminal, through the whispering gallery, beneath the ceiling of stars, and past the information booth and its beckoning four-faced clock, to whatever destination is calling them.

    Story
    "Beautiful tapestry"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Grand Central to be better than the print version?

    I would have to say no. If the narrator had read the book straight-up, or there had been multiple narrators, I might have enjoyed it more. In particular her accent in one story by Amanda Hodgkinson made me glad I could skip through. This did a disservice to an author who promises to be talented.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The characters in Sarah McCoy's "Branch of Hazel" were haunting and unforgetable, as were Gregorie and Liesel in the opening vignet by Alyson Richman.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I liked her general reading, dialogue, and many aspects of it, but with "Tin Town" by Amanda Hodgkinson she put on this funny British-esque accent.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and no. The stories are linked and yet not linked, using Grand Central Station to tie them together.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth your time and credit, particularly the entries by McMorris, McCoy, and Richman.
