Good Stories Marred by Lackluster Performance
The stories in this book are clever and well written, but I would recommend reading them instead of listening to this version. The narrator (the author herself) is unfortunately a little monotonous and doesn???t put much effort, if any, into differentiating between the characters as a good narrator would. As her enunciation is lacking and there is so little enthusiasm in the narration, the whole thing comes off like a teenager reading something in class that they don???t find very interesting. The effect is soporific and dull. It???s a shame as the stories would otherwise be a treat. Well written, poor execution.

Really enjoyable stories
I'm learning to love Holly Black's work (although I suspect Valiant is always going to be my favourite).
Nice mix of stories with a huge range of characters.
