Don't bother!

Such a shame the narration is awful - the read tries to put on a scary voice and succeeds only in making this impossible to listen to!

Nice Stories - Shame about the Voice!

Good stories but the narrator's voice is incredibly annoying. She enuciates every last syllable and it really starts your teeth grinding after a short while. Such a shame to waste good stories with vocal mannerisms - when will the producer's learn?! The only way I would listen to this collection of stories again is if they re-recorded it with a new performer.
