great for adults

this collection was amazing to listen to, I highly recommend it to anyone who loved the brothers grimm as a child or anyone who feels their imagination wavering as an adult. it's quite scary though and I would NOT recomend to anyone who is thinking of buying it for a young audience

Delivery off putting :(

I am sad to say I could not even get through the first chapter due to the narrators odd and stilted delivery.
