This woman sounds like she is both high and drunk. She manages to sound both slurred and staccato. The stories themselves are actually decent but Every. Single. Word. Has the final syllable stretched out.
I am not sure if it is the final mix but it made the entire book unlistenable. I genuinely tried but couldn't last more than 10 minutes. I love short stories they lend themselves to audio books. This was utter trash
