I was interested in hearing how Connie Willis is narrating her own stories. Since it wasn't expensive I gave it a try.
First, she is no professional narrator. This said, she does a real nice job reading her stories.
I'm a fan of her long, elaborate novels, but I enjoyed the short stories very much. They bring new ideas and theories and are mostly funny.
