Don't buy until you have listened to the sample

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

The book itself is probably fine, but for me it was totally unlistenable due the the awful narration.

What will your next listen be?

My next listen will be anything NOT read by Cathy Dobson.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

CD's intonation was awful, her sing-song narration was dire and did not vary. I had hoped that it would get better or that I would get used to it but sadly this was not the case

Any additional comments?

I thought this book was great value for my credit and I'm sure that I would have enjoyed most of the stories, but the narration was intolerable. I'd like my money back!
