Love all these collections. Great performances, good selections of stories that aren't basic tenets of high school that will call up bad memories. Very diverse and entertaining. Been listening to them while hiking on low volume so the bears don't get me. They have greatly improved tedious long trails. Also great just sitting in an armchair.
I am surprised to find there is no table of contents or means of navigation. Surely this should easily be possible?
This is a collection of stories that have no appeal to my tastes. I found them dull and uninteresting. I only made it through 2 1/2 stories before giving up. Wish I could return it.
