I enjoyed this overall. Some of the stories were better than others. I found myself skipping a couple of them, as they were slightly dull. But generally they were dark, funny, unpredictable, twisted and rather savage.
I'm not surprised that the other reviews are mixed. Mystery short stories are a bit different. This collection is much better than average. The narrations were also fine, which i better than average for a collection. I have 2 stories in other collections. (Blue Cross/Bluebeard's Bathtub). I recommend this for those who like mystery collections.
"It was a great listen."
I enjoy crime stories..
I did not have a favorite charator..
like very much
none at this time .I will lesten to it again..
An odd selection of stories, some of which are classics and some eminently forgettable. The narrators are mostly good, with Patrick Malahide standing out particularly. Overall though, the quality is uneven and the package not worth its few jewels.
"wasn't long enough."
The stories were all pretty good, but i think there should have been more of them.
"Great stories if you're looking to punish yourself"
I tried three different stories from this book and couldn't get past the first ten minutes of either one. Neither of the books sparked my interest in the beginning. I won't commit an hour to something that bores me in the first few minutes of listening.
