    Story
    "Not my favorite"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I could not listen to the whole thing! The story seem to be about an unending description of the wall paper on the bedroom wall.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The attempt at sound effects to enhance the mood or experience of the story is so off the track and too loud at times you can barely hear the narrator.
    The recording quality is like it was recorded in a tin can.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I could ask for a return. Only consolation I have is I purchased it at a sale price.

    Story
    "Good story, Bad production"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The story was really good, but the sound effects were sometimes louder than the narrator. I had the listen to it with the book to make sure I was hearing it correctly. That being said, the main narrator was really good.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was awesome. Her voice was great and I wish I could have heard more of it through the sound effects.


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

    Irritation from the loud distracting noises while the narrator was speaking.

    "Destroyed the enjoyment with noise"
    What disappointed you about The Yellow Wallpaper?

    Loud scretching noises through out the story made me want to pull out my headphones.


    If you’ve listened to books by Charlotte Perkins Gilman before, how does this one compare?

    Have not listened to her work before


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Heather Wood and K. Anderson Yancy ?

    They conveyed the demented mind alright, but the loud scretching noises were too distracting to enjoy


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

    sadness and disappointment
