Summary

The Blue Fairy Book, a compilation of delightfully gruesome fairy stories from various authors including Grimm, Madame D’Aulnoy, and Swift, and coming from countries such as Arabia and Scotland. Not the stories we grew up with. Happily ever after? Maybe!

Difficult listening

I love Andrew Lang's fairy story books so was pleased to see this, however couldn't get past halfway through the second story - due to the narration.

Terrible or Non-Existent Editing

About 1/2 way through this audiobook the narrator clearly gets tired and she keeps repeating herself, pausing, rereading small sections, getting up, closing doors, taking drinks, clearing throat. All the while the recording keeps rolling and nothing is edited out. So we just keep hearing her restart sentences over and over again. It was so annoying and distracting that I had to leave a review and this is my first and only review ever on audible.
