    What did you like best about Tell Me a Story? What did you like least?

    These are classic syfy stories, very enjoyable in themselves, however the reader does an unusually poor job. I found if I adjusted the playback speed to 1.5 most of the awkward gaps in the speech cadence were eliminated.

    Ravaged by time and abandoned by the people who once flocked there in search of golden nuggets, Ragged-Ass Gulch is a ghost town. What’s left is a small, proud, and close pack of people who aren’t looking for change. But change seems to be afoot as several mysterious fires plague the town. That’s where the Nameless Detective comes in….

    Geraldine M. Guerin says: "Character study"
    "Know it was free, but......"
    Overall

    Bad accents, marginal reading, weak story. Sorry to be so negative, might work as a kids story.
