I was somewhat pleasantly surprised by this collection. The first few stories out of the gate were pretty interesting, unlike volumes 4 and 5. I went into this, dreading it, after my experience with the last 2.

It does suffer from the same forgettability of the first 2, however. I was about to DNF it after listening to it over a couple of days and hardly remembering anything about it. I decided to finish it, when I noticed I only had 10 minutes left (at 2.55x speed).

Aside from the first 2 – 3 stories, the most noteworthy thing about this collection is how rapid-fire they feel. They start quickly, get interesting, and then end abruptly. It was a bit disappointing when I’d be invested in a story and then it ended and moved on as if it never happened. The only ending I found satisfactory was that of the first story.

The narration has also improved since the last 2 books, to a degree. The character voices could use some work but were passable, and the ever-present background hissing was incredibly distracting and annoying. Other than those issues, I’d say it’s better than most audiobook narrations.
