Couldn't stand the reader's dreary voice
Another reader. I could only stand her for one and a half stories. Completely ruined the book.
Only managed one complete story in this anthology, although I do know some of these stories already
Her voice was dreary in the extreme lacking, in any emotion or differentiation between characters
For stories of this sort I think a man's voice is preferable - the M R James recordings by Derek Jacobi are excellent.
