Nice collection

This is a nice collection of short stories read by different readers (among them I recognised Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry).
The only annoying thing is that they don't always say who is going to read it and I'd like to hear this as well, so I can go out and look on audible for more books that are read by these people...

A bit disappointing

Well written and well read but the stories are dated and not especially edifying.
