I'm a book buying junkie who buys books faster than I can read them. But what better way is there to live than surrounded by books?! I read as much as I can and I do my best to give coherent reviews...which doesn't always happen. I enjoy many genres, which is likely the reason I struggle with deciding my next read.
This was one of the audible monthly free listens. I listened to this at work while binning and while I would love to say I couldn't focus on it because of the job, that's not the case. It was a fun-ish listen; the stories had some comedy, and intrigue that made me laugh or gasp, but it was nothing to write home about.
I feel as though it was a good effort and the stories were decent, but I could only manage 3-stars. The stories all take place during the "current global situation" and I can appreciate the thought behind it. A little something to make you giggle during quarantine, or something the spike your heart rate. I get the intentions behind it, and I applaud the authors and editors, as well as the narrators. I just didn't love it. It was not quite distracting enough.
But it's a quick listen with comedy, quarantined mobsters, estranged brothers stuck together in their childhood home, and a woman who is certain one neighbor murdered his b=husband and is slowly disposing of the body in pastry boxes every day. So it's worth a listen, especially if you're an audible member.
