The Best Readers Are Not Enough
This would be a good primer for actors aspiring to read audio books. It was less appealing to me as a listener. This is not a collection of short stories, but a group of excerpts from novels. Imagine a movie made up of scenes from other movies without transitions. The book also lacks an index or any introduction to the excerpts, so the listener careens from one voice describing 19th century France to another describing contemporary Chinese-American sensibilities. The book does work as a sampler, albeit an awkward one.
