Although not advertised as such, these are highly comedic, even zany, stories. In one, the main character is biting magazine pages on the floor, to mimic damage done by a dog, in another a person who hasn't touched the cello since the age of eleven pretends to be an expert. Each of the stories has their laughable moments. The quality of the reading is absolutely top notch - five out of five, its the somewhat silliness of the stories that lowers the overall evaluation.
