In good conscience, I cannot.
Sexy, mature, provocative fairy tales, retold for an adult audience. There's lots to like here. Kristina Wright's an excellent editor who put together a collection worth checking out. Unfortunately, this audiobook doesn't do the material justice.
The narrator tends towards the flat and emotionless, and when they do vary things up, it's erratic and often at inappropriate times. There's no emotional connection to the material, and no sense that they understand what they're reading. It might as well be done by a tect-to-speech generator. The performance is neither captivating nor sexy, and utterly inappropriate for the material. Pick up the print version, but do yourself a favor and avoid the audiobook as narrated by Lil Tulip.
