    "Some excellent stories"

    Some excellent stories. However, this should really come into the Abridged section as having read the original physical book there are at 2 stories missing from the original book, There Are No Snakes in Ireland is one (in my opinion the best from the original book) and Duty. If these were included it would get 5 stars from me.

    "No Comebacks By Frederick Forsyth"

    Normally I do not like short stories, however this book is a collection of short stories that go from good to incredible. The Emperor and The Careful Man are stories that make life worth living no matter how rough life is going.

    "A great short story collection"
    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy a good short story and find very few great collections. Here is a great one, with excellent plots and twists. All the tales are good and a couple stand out. 'A Careful Man' and 'The Emperor' are memorable.

    "Okay Collection But 2 Stories Missing!"

    The original book has 10 stories but here we only get 8. It should really be classed as an abridged book. The two that are missing are "There are no Snakes in Ireland" and "Duty". The former is often cited as the highlight of the book as it won a Edgar Allan Poe Award for best short story and it's really disappointing that it's missing. Why would you omit two of the stories, one of which is supposedly the highlight?

    The 8 stories you do get are generally either set in Ireland or are based around a middle/upper class stiff upper lip British businessman/gentry. The latter gets a little bit wearing. The stories themselves are fine with a twist at the end although in a number you could see the twist coming.

    Narration is okay although once or twice you could hear the ruffle of pages and it wasn't always obvious when one story ended and the next started.

    Not essential Forsyth but any means, more for the completest (although you'll have to track down a paper copy to read the two missing stories!).

    "Marvellous - as always"

    Always worth listening to. Can we have more from Mr Forsyth? His stories are well researched and elegantly written.
