    "Wonderful stories a great book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Celtic Fairy Tales to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact is was a collection of stories so you can listen to a few or many


    What does Cathy Dobson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great Speech and nuance to the spoken word.

    Story
    "Stories are great, if narrator was bearable"
    Would you be willing to try another one of Cathy Dobson’s performances?

    I'd try one... but would turn it off immediately if there was the same problem.


    Any additional comments?

    Narrator read so slowly that my brain couldn't focus on what she was saying. She would lose me halfway through a sentence. I try to do things while listening, and even sitting still doing nothing but listening... it was painful and impossible to stay focused with her reading.

    "Disappointing...."
    What would have made Celtic Fairy Tales better?

    The readers' voice was quite unpleasant to listen to...


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cathy Dobson?

    Someone with a more pleasant irish accent...


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment
