    "Interesting, But I've Heard Better"

    I was a little disappointed in these stories. Not all of them made sense to me and some seemed to end abruptly. Just not my cup of tea. I received a free copy of this audiobook for an honest review.”

    "Fun Series of Short Stories"
    Any additional comments?

    There are 6 short stories in this book, the narration was decent for the entire book. My favorite story was the Death and Rebirth of Anne Bonny, I actually would have liked this book to be a little longer.

    I don't really agree with the classification of SciFi for most of this book, I think there were really 2 Sci/Fi but the the rest were really contemporary fiction to me.

    "Great Short Stories"

    These stories are all about children with challenges and the triumph they experience as a result of their condition or after they come to terms with it.

    I enjoyed them and they all sent a very good, positive message to those of us (who doesn't?) who deal with real physical or mental challenges each day. I am considering attempting to get my son with asperger's syndrome to listen to it. He is at the age where his condition sometimes frustrates him to the point that he 'hates being autistic'. He struggles with abstract concepts but I think these stories could at least be a conversation starter for us.

    The narration was steady and clear and well paced.

    I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.

    "Great stories, great narrator"

    Check my other reviews and you will see that I don't normally rate everything a 5 but this little book earned it.

    Each story was interesting on its own - there are 6 in this 90 minute book so no story was very long. I loved the first story but they are all good. They were well crafted and sufficient unto themselves but were also so good and interesting that I wanted each to go on longer - I wanted to hear/learn more about the characters.

    I can't say enough good about the narrator. Perfect pacing, good characterizations, no distracting goofs - I will be looking at other books Suzanne Barbetta has narrated because she is that good - I want to hear more of her.

    "Very satisfying listen"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a quick listen and I did it while preparing dinner. The story was so complete though that several times I had to stop and just enjoy the listen without moving. It was sweet and tender and imaginative and not be missed.

    Story
    "Not all are science fiction, some are just random."
    What did you like best about The Death and Rebirth of Anne Bonny? What did you like least?

    I loved how the writer described nature and the nuances of human nature. I loved the mischievous parrot.


    Has The Death and Rebirth of Anne Bonny turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I think this grouping of stories spans different genres. Some stories were good, a couple were more of musings, descriptions of people's lives under trying conditions.


    What does Suzanne Barbetta bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I liked her reading of the stories. I could see in my mind the freckled nose girl when Suzanne described her voice. It was a perfect voice for the character.


    Do you think The Death and Rebirth of Anne Bonny needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Not really. Perhaps if the author had enough stories to separate out the science fiction she could turn it into two volumes.


    Any additional comments?

    The science fiction stories are good. The other ones I am sure are okay if not labeled as SF but when included, well a person is waiting for the science fiction aspect to kick in so when it is suddenly over it seems mundane.

    Story
    "Aye Aye"

    This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom dot com.

    There are 6 short stories. Since I didn't see any summaries of the stories, i'm including brief points below. While audible categorizes the book as sci fi, I'd only consider about half of them as Sci-Fi. Be warned most of the stories are kinda sad, dealing with death or otherwise crippled characters unable to enjoy their life. At least the stories suggest at a happy ending.

    As for the narrator: I Liked the accents the narrator used in "Cyborg and the Cemetery" for her characters and her stuttering in "First Steps". She did a fine job for the rest of the book.

    The Death and Rebirth of Anne Bonny - Children's - Girl and her pet bird go through tragedy together.

    Saving Sammy - Contemporary - Doctor treats a boy with autism.

    All or Nothing - Contemporary - Relationship evolves between two children as they grow up.

    In the Fading Light of Sundown - Post Apocalypse - Tobas makes a journey to find his love.

    The Cyborg and the Cemetery - Sci Fi - A human/cyborg mix discusses whether cyborgs are human.

    First Steps - Sci Fi - Girl wants to spread her father's ashes and meets a crippled boy on the way.
