Terrible language in all but two! Finally stopped!

Soooo unfortunate! These could have been good stories. I skipped through all of them but two! There was so much bad language! I finally stopped at the 8th story when the F word was used. If any of the other stories were any good I couldn’t tell you. It’s sad that the English language is so degraded!

Mixed bag with some true gems

Across the spectrum is a nice title as the stories vary in SF/F levels. Some absolute gems such as grass, mist & sand and the one about an old Sri Lankan lady cooking. I didn’t care much for the intro’s and some American accents are hard to listen to for me. All in all, a pleasant free surprise from Audible. Oh and they kept the best die last.

Disorganized anthology

Why does someone publish a multi author anthology and failed to idrntify the chapters?

Good stuff

This was a brilliant conception. I really enjoyed the authors view before the story. Each story was good to great. The one that struck me the hardest was

These stories aren’t even good let alone great.

I listened to the first two stories, neither of which were even remotely good. I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone, it’s probably the worst anthology book I’ve ever purchased.

Wide variety of stories

Almost all these stories were very good to excellent. I thought the collection was well diversified. There were a couple stories that were narrated in such a flat voice I wondered if it was intentional. Still not sure. I didn’t find that to complement the otherwise well selected collection.

Banality Incarnate

Okay, maybe 2.5 stars overall, with points deducted for production value.

It is likely that I would enjoy this book more while reading it myself, but, performance aside, the subject matter was geared toward a different demographic (breeders) and if one cannot identify with the story it is hard to be too interested.

Finally, I would like to suggest that one should never fake an accent for the reading of a story. If the story demands a British narrator, get a British reader.
