Great stories but a problem with the audiobook
Great stories and brilliant performances. However, the last chapter is a repeat of one of the other stories.

Keep on going. It’s worth it
I share this account and my fellow listener stopped after about 3hours. Having got to the end I can say he missed a moving story with a good deal of realism. At times tears were rolling down my face. The end was a bit predictable but I won’t give the game away.
