dreadful narration

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

This was absolutely awful ... I wanted to enjoy it but the awful monotonous droning of Cathy Dobson as the narrator spoilt it totally. I only managed to listed to 1-1/2 stories before snatching my headphones off.... Awful awful awful. So disappointed as I have no doubt the stories are great.

How could the performance have been better?

Any additional comments?

Please redo this collection with a different narrator. Just because she's an author in her own right, does not make her a good reader!! I note one other reviewer also made similar comments.
