    "They're all good stories!"

    I originally purchased this book simply because I am such a huge fan of Diana Gabaldon, one of the contributors. Turns out *all* the stories are excellent! Well worth the read.

    "Matchup review"

    I really didn't like most of the stories ...they seemed to end abruptly. But thus book might be someone else's cup of tea.

    "what a great group of stories"
    Where does MatchUp rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 10% for sure. Especially since I am not a big short story fan.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    This collection has terrific plot and does keep you guessing.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    These narrators are always at the top of there craft. This sample meets expectations.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The stories which include


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great combination of some of contemporary literature's favorite characters. Careful, these characters will lead to craving much, much more.

    "Just can't. Returning for credit"
    What disappointed you about MatchUp?

    Everything. Very confusing. The first three stories did not hold my attention.


    What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

    Some of the narrators and too many characters for a short story.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Do not know. Perhaps more suspense which is what I was expecting.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from MatchUp?

    From the few I read, all of them.


    Any additional comments?

    Very disappointed. I will be more wary before buying an anthology of stories. This was my first and probably my last. The last three-book series I purchased proved to be disappointing as well. Not for me, but from some of the reviews, I seem to be in the minority.

    "An Amazing Collection"
    Would you listen to MatchUp again? Why?

    At least some of the stories


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how characters I knew or knew of were matched together to solve problems


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    All the narrators did a good job


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great concept and they did an amazing job of matching up author pairs. I sep liked the small introduction before each story explaining how the authors worked together to complete each story
