Listening to the narrator has damaged my sanity
I don't mean to be unkind but the narrator was definitely not the right person for the job. Having someone else, anyone else, read it would have improved my rating.
My mind has blanked out all specific memory of the stories to protect me.
Her vocal rhythm is unendurable and monotonous. Every sentence sounds the same as the as the last and the next one; it starts off quietly and then reaches a crescendo and then quietens again. It's not her fault; she's obviously articulate. The fault lies with whoever gave her the job and whoever directed her. Her talents may be better deployed in the field of hypnosis?

Terrible reader so oils would could be a great col
The book WAS for me, the reader wasn't!
Back to an old favourite until I can bear to try this again
I don't know I couldn't bear to get past the 3rd chapter
Such a shame - looks like a great collection
