Biased Perspective

- Reader is good, stories not so much

The first story was entertaining and interesting. The others not so much. Look up reviews on the stories elsewhere before investing your time to make sure it seems like something you would enjoy. Reader was really solid!


So very entertaining! Completely twists and turns all unexpected and great reading!

Odd stories, but what a great reader!


- Perfect!!

Perfect for the commute and such an interesting book. The narrator is awesome as well!


- Love It!

The reader for this book does an incredible job! Great British accent, but easy to understand and slow enough to catch what's going on. Love Chesterton's writing, which reminds me of a cross between Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Lemony Snicket!
