Disappointed

Crude. Meaningless. I did not expect the bad language. I like Nevada Barr but not everything she write/reads has positive impact.

Very bad

Can't believe they even bothered to publish this. At least it was short. I don't usually write reviews, but I felt the need to warn others to not waste their time and/or money on this.

Great stories, terrible readers

Such a shame - both stories were really good, but the reader of the first story was flat and sounded bored out of her mind, and the second one clearly had somewhere else to be as she raced through. So frustrating!
