overall very enjoyable

Would you listen to Classic Crime Short Stories again? Why?

I enjoyed this overall. Some of the stories were better than others. I found myself skipping a couple of them, as they were slightly dull. But generally they were dark, funny, unpredictable, twisted and rather savage.
