I swore I would not write a review on a book of erotica. But I can't not complain about this. I am 99.9% certain that the narrator on this was either a computer-generated voice or a human narrator's voice was altered to sound fake. It was as if the computer-generated recorded voice you get when you call Directory assistance and they ask "What City? What #?" was reading the book. Or the voice on my Garmin GPS that is always telling me to "turn left" or incessantly repeating "recalculating, recalculating" every time I make a wrong turn.
There was no space between sentences and no pauses for breath. Certain words were said at an entirely different rate, inflection and range than the words immediately before and after. And when the voice was supposed to relay a specific emotion, like passion, it sounded even more fake. If there was a human behind the voice of the narrator she should be appalled at the way her voice was "photo-shopped". If it was an entirely computer generated narration then I think that should be stated in the book info. There was nothing listenable, much less erotic about this narration. I have no idea about the quality of the writing or the story. I couldn't hear it.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would recommend this book in written form. The narrating for the audio version is almost too much to bear. After listening to the introduction to the book, I almost didn't go further. It is the individual stories that kept me interested. Short stories but to the point with each one. Effective.
How could the performance have been better?
Less robotic, too staccato. It could be made better by a more natural reading of the stories.
