Not what I was expecting

The Audible blurb describes these as stories with no beginning, middle or end. I couldn’t understand this concept so downloaded them out of curiosity. In fact they are not stories so much as short lectures or chats, on topics ranging from the mundane (quilt-collecting, cooking and baseball) to the esoteric (philosophy and mathematics).

The blurb also says that these ‘stories’ are ‘narrated by the world’s most celebrated voices’, so I was expecting to hear from familiar actors, presenters or voice artists. This can be really helpful as a familiar voice is more soothing when you’re trying to get to sleep. However, so far the only reader familiar to me has been Tony Shalhoub. He does have a great voice and I was asleep before he got halfway through his talk on the history of maths!

So although these stories are not what I was expecting, I think most listeners will find something here to interest them and to help them sleep. And they’re free, so what have you got to lose?

Just as I'd hoped

Exactly the right mix, distracts the mind just enough to relax without getting caught up

Fantastic

The pumpkin stew is my absolute favourite! I wish their was a whole collection like pumpkin stew.. dedicated to cookery.. Talking you through recipes, the smells, the preparation, even the little splashes of sauce! Genuis

Amazing!

I have struggled with sleep for many, many months, and have tried all manner of things both medical and physical.
I was a bit sceptical but I am very pleased to say this works. Not only do I fall asleep but I sleep for much longer, only waking once during the night.
Is this hypnosis?
