DISAPPOINTED BY THE NARRATOR
What disappointed you about Thirty-Minute Stories?
I can't even stand to listen to the narrator. She ends her sentences on an UP intonation. She doesn't seem to be reading seriously. It's like sing-sing not dramatic.
What about Cathy Dobson’s performance did you like?
I can't even stand to listen to the narrator. She ends her sentences on an UP intonation. She doesn't seem to be reading seriously. I will never buy another audiobook she reads. I SHOULD HAVE DONE AN ON-LINE LISTEN FIRST.
Any additional comments?
rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr disappointed to the max

Narrator is really annoying.
I have struggled through other books that involve this narrator. She has strange cadences that are quite distracting. As a result, I am returning this book. Not a comment on the quality of the stories just on the quality of the narration.
