Narrator's voice oye!

What would have made Fifty Fantastic Tales better?

The narrator had only one inflection in her cadence. It was grating. The narrator needs to develope a greater range of voices and tempo.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I can not bear to continue listening. I wish I had a hard copy to read.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Great stories..
