Not what I was looking for.

Thought it was more like a favorite author of mine as it came up in an author search. Some not bad. Didn’t finish it.

Don't waste your money.

I am a big Audable fan. But this is one of the worse things I have ever bought. My bad choice but hope you don't make the same mistake.

Difficult to Follow Narrators

It is unfortunate that many of the narrators are difficult to understand. I skipped over five or six chapters because of this. The stories I could understand were great.

Exiting on a shiver

Was a very entertaining listen. Although I got a bit distracted by some of the accents.
