    "Better editing needed"

    I have no complaints about the stories in this audible book. I enjoyed most of the readings. Especially Jean Smart. Unfortunately, the editing of the stories is awful; whoever edited the audible book did not allow for a break between each story. As soon as one story was finished another one began. I found this very frustrating. There was no time to evaluate each story. I enjoy being given the opportunity to create an opinion on the nature, character, or quality of the books I am listening to.

    "Cat lovers may wish to avoid"

    Because of the authors included in this book, particularly Sharon McCrumb and Joan Hess, I was eager to listen. And several of the stories did not let me down. However, for anyone who has cats in their family, as I do, may wish to avoid this book. At least three of the stories involved death of cats and one deals with the theft of cats and their ultimate sale to vivisection/cosmetic laboratories with such detailed descriptions I couldn't listen to much of the story. Having skipped ahead, I did find a redeeming ending to the story, however sad, but this selection and others certainly cooled me to the book overall.

    "Needs Editing!"

    These are great stories, but there is less than a second between them! The name and author of the next story is not even given. The last sentence of one literally runs into the first sentence of the next which is very confusing.

    Story
    "Great Cats, Awful Editing"

    Each story in this collection, for the most part, is a lot of fun and what one would want in a cat-centric mystery compilation. There were two not to my liking but I can't tell you which due to the bizarre editing choice for the collection.

    There is no introduction given for any of the stories, not even the name of the story or the author who wrote it. Stories simply run one into the next, and if it wasn't for different readers taking over, it would take you a few minutes to realize you were on a new story.

    I heard several stories I'd love to read more like. I just don't know what I listened to.
