Thoroughly enjoyable..... totally entertained

I’m a very hard person to please when it comes to stories....... but I was happily surprised with this mix of stories.... and the narrators were reallly well picked for each story.... A cozy, and enjoyable listening for a good few hours!! well worth my credit .... I nearly return all books unless I love the story... this one won’t be returned !!!

What on Earth?

Probably the most bizarre book I've ever listened to.

Some really random stories, some good, many not.

Not recommended, yes they are stories of mysteries, but don't expect too many explanations.
