Great listen

Lady was a bit hard to understand at times. But enjoyed the content again after 10+ years of reading the book in hardcopy.

Yeah...nah...yeah?

Interesting stories but the performance leaves something to be desired. Definitely could be improved.
Some of these short stories are definitely better than others, however they do a good job of introducing very interesting characters who feature in novels of their own.
