Loved the 20 minute factor

Patchy - some really good stories and some not so good. Cathy Dobson has an unusual narrating voice. It worked well for most of the narration.

I will look for more of these short stories. Ideal late night listening.

What could the authors have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Provide information about each story, such as title and name instead of chapter numbers.

It does no matter

frustration --

Any additional comments?

There are so many better short stories than those -- worse yet: I can't choose what to listen since the lack titles or names of the authors. If I can't select which story to listen then every story better be great! But not so lucky, after 3 or four mediocre ones I skipped a few they got worse and I decided it is no worth my time.
