Bedtime Stories for Cynics

I found this book to be vulgar and offensive. I'm returning it after hearing the first story.

I loved it but too short!

I guess it's a good review to say I wanted to hear many more stories.

Couldn’t listen

The first 30 seconds threw out the F bomb so many times I shut it off! I’m no prude, but in my mind, senseless cursing is an indication of near illiteracy.

Great stuff but short

This audio book had fantastic and humorous narrations with some of the best production quality I've heard from an audio book. My one problem was the length of it. 1 hr 42 min goes by quick!

Disappointing

1. There's nothing "bedtime" about it. If you listen to this at night, you might actually get nightmares.
2. I thought other reviews were exaggerating about the profanity, but they were not. And it's not just that. The stories are crude and dark. Someone went too far on this one.
