    "Dreadful Narration"

    The narrator on this is overly gushy and unnatural in her reading, and because it's M.F.K. Fisher's words and Fisher was nothing like this in her style or speech, it was impossible for me to continue for long. You're far better off reading this yourself than listening to this woman who uses her voice like a gushy rollercoaster, over unnatural highs and lows in a way that speaks of an amateur, not Fisher or her life.

    Other than that, no complaints. The story's okay (compiled from other Fisher writings). Any of those would serve you better.
