    What would have made Hollywood Stories better?

    A different narrator.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The stories. Nothing not interesting.

    Anyone. His voice is horrible doing this kind of narration.

    None


    Any additional comments?

    I have this book in my kindle library. Reading it is fine. Listening hurts my ears.
