  • The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

    The Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world. They lie, steal, smoke cigars, swear, and hit little kids. So no one is prepared when this outlaw family invades church one Sunday and decides to take over the annual Christmas pageant.

    "Great Story, horrible recording"
    Overall

    This story, timeless in subject and quite memorable all by itself (which is why I gave it at least two stars) is fatally marred by a terrible recording. The words are barely distinguishable in places and the distortion distracts so badly that a couple of times I almost shut it off in favor of other, better Audible recordings. Audible should remove this version from its inventory and find a better, higher-quality recording. Either that or refund the money of those who purchased this lousy rendition of a wonderful short story. Go look for a better recording; do not purchase this one. You will regret doing so if you do.

    FYI, I listened to this on a Sony Home Theater piece of equipment, used with Blu-Ray disks, and an iPod for a recording medium.
