Inside Jobs: Tales from a Time of Quarantine by Ben H. Winters

Inside Jobs: Tales from a Time of Quarantine - Ben H. Winters, Scott Aiello, Ellen Archer, Kevin T. Collins

As a short story collection set in the current times of staying at home, this book oddly tries so hard to avoid mentioning the coronavirus. It talks about a global health emergency and physical distancing but skirts around to avoid saying the actual reason behind the quarantine in which the characters find themselves. The first story is straight humor and Scott Aiello as the narrator does a great job. The second one is a bit of an odd thriller, but the narrator speaks so slowly I had to speed it up. The third story is more on the light side for a suspense/thriller and the narrator is okay. All in all not bad for a free audio original, but I've listened to more memorable ones.
