    "Sould have stopped while they were ahead!"
    Any additional comments?

    This book started out great. Very interesting concept and some well written stories, unfortunately, the book "overstayed it's welcome". I rarely do not finish a book but after putting hours into it, I finally let it go. The writing was just too uneven. One story would be great, followed by an average or below average one. In the end, it wore me down and I stopped listening. If you catch it on sale, get it, otherwise think long and hard before using a credit.

    Story
    "Maybe the worst book I have ever read!"

    Maybe the worst book I have ever read and since I have been reading everyday my whole life (I'm 58), that is saying something. I can list the books I couldn't finish on one hand with fingers left over, but I just couldn't finish this one. It is a mash up of boring, d-grade movie, gobbledygook. My advice to the reader is, "just don't". My advice to the publishers and authors, "next time, just say no".

    "Great book! "

    I've been meaning to read this book for a long time so when I saw it on Audible I listened to it right away. I should have read it a lot sooner. this is a great book.

    "Zero conclusions"

    This is a book made up of many stories, each with no conclusion. They all leave you hanging. Don't waste your time on this book or its sequels.

    Story
    "Excellent narration, average stories."

    Setting but nothing thematic connects the stories within. This was a little jarring. Also about one in three of the stories within were bad.

    "Awesome"

    I love the different stories and how they intertwined. The narration was fantastic, one man, 50+ characters, NEVE once were the characters' voices inconsistent.
