Excellent collection horribly performed

Such a shame... This company produces the best collections of ghost and horror stories from the nineteenth and early twentieth century to be found in audible's catalogue - diverse, good mixture of well-known pieces and 'forgotten gems' - only to have them ruined utterly by Cathy Dobson, who quite simply should not be let near a recording microphone on any excuse.

dissapointment

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

so very sad, I was hoping for more. The 2 stories I coped with were good, but I am sorry to say that after the 2nd story I just could not cope with the reader any more, a very boring and monotone voice. I will be deleting this

Would you be willing to try another one of Cathy Dobson’s performances?

absolutely not! such a terrible reading voice

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disapointment

Any additional comments?

try a sample before you buy.
