Story 5: Sophie and the Film Collector
Although I found the stories in this collections to be very erotic and attractive in that respect, this was quickly overshadowed by the numerous errors and other distractions. To begin with, the poor audio quality doesn't do the book justice. The constant hum is nerve racking... at least to me. Next you have many errors where words or entire phrases were repeated twice in succession. Obviously the intention was for one to be edited out, but the audio editor missed it. By the time you get to the last story, you've experienced this 10 or more times.
But these are complaints about the production, not the content. My 'only' grip with the writing came with the over use (abuse??) of the word 'sex' as it relates to character's genitals. Couldn't the author think of anything else to call them besides 'sex'? At times she used the word sex 4 or 5 times in the same paragraph and multiple time in the same sentence. Again, a quick pass by an editor would have yielded a few new (or at least different) descriptive terms.
But despite all of this, the stories were good and entertaining, and I guess in the end, I'd rather have good writing and mediocre production value, than the other way around. With some work in the recording studio and a little tweaking here and there, this collection would be near the top of my list.
