The performance was superb. It spoiled me for future so-so audio performances.
This was so disappointing. My daughter commutes with me in the morning and we like to listen to audiobooks together. I thought for sure she would love listening to these fairy tales. The problem? It's written in early 1900s English and is just so dry. I couldn't even make it through the first couple minutes of each story.
I don't know who exactly the target audience was for this book, but someone had to know that the St Louis community would be a big part of it...right? But yet no one had the common courtesy to check on the pronunciations of the city's neighborhoods and landmarks...and even the newspaper. Very very distracting!
The performance was just downright weird and creepy. The different voices were bizarre. Unfortunately I won't be able to get the strange baby-talk-to-the-dog out of my head (ever). If the story was more interesting I might not have been so distracted by the performance. Couldn't even finish it.
Oh Andy you are the best. I loved it!! Such a great coming of age story that anyone can relate to...
