Reviews - What do customers think about Selected Shorts: Pets! (Selected Shorts: A Celebration of the Short Story)?

Misnomer  Oct 13, 2007
If you want to buy stories about pets, don't choose these: animals play a tiny part in them and are oscurely symbolic or merely incidental to the tales. Actually, the standard is fairly high overall, with some stories much better than others, but the audience reaction is lukewarm, sometimes missing altogether the humour. Furthermore the whole is short, the three cds offering six stories, none especially long.
