Trivial morality tale

People acting foolishly. Dangerous dog at the center of the story not a realistic solution.

Consequences of Actions

This was a short story about the consequences of action that start a chain of events. While I knew something was coming, it did not turn out the way I expected. A good story, beautifully narrated.

Chain of events - 4 stars

One bad deed leads to another as an act of revenge sets of a CHAIN of events. An interesting listen, full of action. It did go into some backstory about the character's heritage and prejudices against himself and other characters. It seemed to set up a longer story but I guess it was just enough to make for an entertaining story. Good narrator.
