Narrator has a very annoying voice

The narrator’s delivery is not in line with the story....his tone, pitch and variations are too sing-songy, stealing energy from the author. I bought dozens of books while on sale...and am wondering if they were on sale because of the Narrator?

Quick and Snappy

Most horror likes to drag out the story to invoke suspense, terror, thrills and chills. This is a fast moving, easily read story that is perfect for a Halloween tradition.
