A Fun Listen

I enjoyed these stories very much. They're funny, heart warming and slightly politically incorrect. It would been a straight 5 stars, but I just dropped one on the overall rating, because the volume varied a bit, so it wasn't quite as easy to listen to while driving as some audiobooks. That's a very minor point though on what was otherwise a very enjoyable listen.
