Such an annoying voice

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I tried really hard to listen to this book, I had paid for it so did not want to waste my money, but the narrator has such an annoying voice and needlessly extends the ends of sentances that after struggling through the first story I had to give up.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Ger a different reader

Would you be willing to try another one of Cathy Dobson’s performances?
