Short Stories.

An interesting selection of short stories, I was a little put off by the first story "The Assurance Salesman" and must say that I almost ditched the book because of this however I decided to continue and I'm glad I did as later stories more than made up for it. Very well written with a wonderful diverse set of characters and themes. I particularly liked the way the author narrated his own comments about each story before it started and before Danielle Muething came in narrating the main story which she did very professionally. Having given my least favourite it is difficult to choose but My favourite was probably "Backstage Pass". A thought provoking story including time travel and someone trying to change history and it's unexpected consequences. All in all a very good listen/read. Highly recommended.
I was kindly given a copy of this book by the narrator and leave this honest review voluntarily.
