Great tales spoiled by the wrong narrator

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?


What did you like best about this story?

Buchan writes accessible and exciting stories

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Cathy Dobson?

Someone with a more appropriate voice, or at least tone. Cathy sounded like she was reading for a childrens group. The stories needed more gravity.
