Interesting listen.

Nice mix of celebrity narrators. Also found the storyline kind of apt for some casual listening when going to sleep. note - keep the volume low

it's so boring, I couldn't even sleep

I can understand that it may be a good idea to make a bed time story book boring, to help you sleep. This book passes that, it's so boring that you can't even sleep. hearing someone describe triangles and the baseball scores in a dull monotonous voice is kind of like being back in the most boring class at high school, except somehow more annoying. at best, you can use it as white noise in the background on a speaker turned down low, if you listen to it on headphones (as I usually do) it's difficult to sleep. the voices are quite soothing, and depending upon your tolerance for baseball and math, it might just be enough to bore you to sleep, quite literally.

Not what I was expecting

The Audible blurb describes these as stories with no beginning, middle or end. I couldn’t understand this concept so downloaded them out of curiosity. In fact they are not stories so much as short lectures or chats, on topics ranging from the mundane (quilt-collecting, cooking and baseball) to the esoteric (philosophy and mathematics). The blurb also says that these ‘stories’ are ‘narrated by the world’s most celebrated voices’, so I was expecting to hear from familiar actors, presenters or voice artists. This can be really helpful as a familiar voice is more soothing when you’re trying to get to sleep. However, so far the only reader familiar to me has been Tony Shalhoub. He does have a great voice and I was asleep before he got halfway through his talk on the history of maths! So although these stories are not what I was expecting, I think most listeners will find something here to interest them and to help them sleep. And they’re free, so what have you got to lose?

Amazing!

I have struggled with sleep for many, many months, and have tried all manner of things both medical and physical. I was a bit sceptical but I am very pleased to say this works. Not only do I fall asleep but I sleep for much longer, only waking once during the night. Is this hypnosis?

Just as I'd hoped

Exactly the right mix, distracts the mind just enough to relax without getting caught up

Fantastic

The pumpkin stew is my absolute favourite! I wish their was a whole collection like pumpkin stew.. dedicated to cookery.. Talking you through recipes, the smells, the preparation, even the little splashes of sauce! Genuis

Wouldn’t have believed it

Wouldn’t have believed it, had I not tried it... can’t say they are the most riveting stories but then that is the point, they are not meant to be...voices and tone perfect, must have been so difficult, to maintain but all the story tellers managed to...they may not work for everyone but worth a try..... Great idea, definitely recommend.

it works.

The idea is to drone you to sleep with boredom- whilst maybe learning some small useless facts

The best sleep.

This is the best sleep story I've found. Relaxing voice tone, not a topic I'm into, interesting but not too interesting which is what you want when trying to sleep. I slept so well. I woke once and even though the story had ended o could here the voice in my head and I dropped off again.

Simply awesome

I especially like the mathematics and the Escoffier ones, I nodd of almost at once. My only problem is that the sleep mode function doesn't seem to be working properly for me - especially if I set the timer. I fell asleep to the Escoffier one, and a friend told me that despite the timer it had continued to the Pumpkin stew one. Apperantly it made her even more hungry after a night out...
