    "So-So"

    The first story is the best by far. I'm almost done listening to this book -- some stories I had to skip due to just not being able to get past the narrators. Others were just not my style. But there were a couple of good stories. All-in-all, just a so-so compilation in my humble opinion.

    "The World's Finest Mystery & Crime Stories, Vol. 2"

    Really a mixed review. Technically, one story disappeared midstream and another began spontaneously. Another problem was a totally valley-girl type narrator that drove me to advance past her work. I did find may of the stories entertaining but generally was disappointed with the overall quality.

    "enjoyed it"

    another good colection of short stories in the mystery/crime genre. a good way to sample contemporary writers to see if one might enjoy a longer ,novel, from that writer.

    "Technical difficulties"
    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The book sparked disappointment in that most of the stories are just so-so and some of them are just cut off with no ending. Perhaps this book needs to be re-recorded.
