thei stories aren't bad but the reading from a few of the narrators made it feel like nails on a chalkboard, or drilling into a cavity! I had to stop listening when the one person started another chapter. the drawing out of the final word in a sentence was making me crazy! I'd like to hear the book and I really never complain but I just couldn't take it anymore with this one! I couldn't even follow the story listening to that one! a couple were good though which made me make it through 7 chapters. heard the one again and just switched books.
