    " This book was mostly older stories read by some well-known people. All of the narration is good, and the stories move from dark to light, which is a clever arrangement. But the collection is heavier on classics than I'd realized and I was disappointed by that. "

    " Terrific stories of course, but why was only one female writer chosen? "

    " These was my least favorite of this series. I did not understand the choice of stories - many were mean-spirited and unpleasant. "
