    "Disappointing"

    I was looking forward to listening to these stories but I can’t do it. The reading is so bad that the book is unlistenable. The voice sounds like that of a robot and not a very good one at that.

    "Seriously Bad"

    Can't comment on the content as couldn't get past the first story narration is dreadful - seriously didn't anyone quality check this prior to it being put on sale. Why does the reader feel she has to elongate every other word no stars only gave them one because the system wouldn't let me send the review otherwise

    "The most poorly performed book I have listened to of all time. Absolute torture."

    Some of the most wonderful prose was butchered by this performance. Such a shame that these works were garbled to have masked their beauty and ingenuity. Absolutely terrible. I made a note of the reader so that I never order any book by this performer.
