Publisher's Summary

Like a genie’s lamp, whenever someone rubs against the coin, their deepest wish comes true. The other effect is that rubbing on the coin also brings them what they need the most. This coin only works once for each person but has changed hands many times.

Lucky Coin

A short tale of a lucky coin that gives anyone who touches it the very thing that they want and the things that they need. Since this is a short read/listen, there isn't much character development but instead a short glimpse into the lives of those who touch the coin. Not a bad way to spend an hour. The narrator does a pretty good job with this tale.

I was given the chance to listen to the audiobook version of this book and chose to review it.

cute short story

This was a cute story about the circulation of a magic coin that Grants the holder what they desire and most needs. At times I felt that I was in school being educated. Too many characters for a short story. I did not get the opportunity to really get to know any. This story lacked the personal touch or intimate relationship with the characters. I would have preferred concentrating on one main character and developing them. I received this free review book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This May Not Be Accurate

I admit this isn't a fair review as I didn't finish the book. That may be because I found the narrator's voice to be incredibly boring and kept thinking of the "Dick and Jane" book, with sentences like "Look, Jane see Spot run", short and choppy. It might well have been better if I had read it instead of listening to the narrator's voice. As it was, I stopped after the fourth chapter when I couldn't remember what it was about. Guess this is more a review of the narrator's performance than the book.

it's a coin that....

Very nice short story. I enjoyed this listen. The coin gives people not what they really want but what they need. Just by a mere touch.

Waiting to impart luck.

This is a short story tracing a day in the life of a very special 1985 U.S.quarter, accidentally minted from a much older coin. Stuck for ages in an old laundromat, when finally released it passes through the hands of four people, reads the desires and needs of each one, then gives them what they want. A nice, upbeat story, well narrated by Mike Eberhardt and introduced and ended with a short burst of music.
Great idea for a story and well executed. Although short, the protagonists were well characterized. My thanks to the rights holder who, at my request, freely gifted me with a complimentary copy. A really pleasant, and interesting, way to fill an hour. How lovely it it were true. Recommended for all readers
