Funny and thought provoking.

There are 9 short stories in this collection. As they vary in length between 3 and 14 minutes, there’s no time for flowery descriptions. We jump right in there and meet the protagonists, there’s a whip crack as the plot escalates, then a twist in the tale and it’s over. You stand smiling with eyebrows raised, on the other side of the story, bemused that it’s over so soon.

A couple of tales have the classic ‘bait and switch’ ‘it’s not what you thought it was’ type ending (don’t worry, no spoilers here) and that’s always good for a shocker ending if done well, which this is. The rest are more thought provoking, and the scope of the ideas continues to expand beyond the story’s end. You’ll find yourself thinking about them later.

As other reviewers have noted, at just over an hour in total, it’s a very short listen. But don’t let that deter you. The content is carefully distilled, so every word is to be savoured. Highly recommended.

Excellent short stories

The performances are something you can't really describe. The writing and performance continue to be great, as they were with Artemis. I found myself listening to chapters again it was so engrossing.
