    "I.don't understand."

    Aside from music and comments from audible, the text consisted of only 4 sentences, lasting maybe 16 seconds.

    Story
    "Way too short"

    This isn't worth downloading. I didn't time it exactly, but I'm fairly certain that more than 2/3 of the recording was intro and "outro" music. The poem itself was sandwiched ineffectually between them.

    Story
    "Too short To consider"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It should have been presented with additional materials
    Maybe it would be enjoyed more in a visual format


    What was most disappointing about D. C. Morehouse’s story?

    It was only 4 lines long


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

    While i appreciate her voice, I don't think it made the experience more enjoyable


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I actually liked the music.


    Any additional comments?

    I am afraid I was disappointed overall

    Story
    "A poem"
    What disappointed you about The Elephant and the Castle?

    I enjoy poetry of all types; because all poetry has a voice of its own.
    the length could have been extended a bit to invite the reader beyond the door.


    What could D. C. Morehouse have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Well, I know that most poetry books are not very extensive in length to begin with; it could have presented with more than one poem.


    What didn’t you like about Vanessa MacDonald’s performance?

    The voice reading was good.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I never said that I didn't like the poem. Again everyone has their own voice. I would encourage the author to keep pressing forward even if this is your first attempt. You have to gain 'courage' to just put your work out there and 'prepare' yourself for the critics as well as the rave reviews.


    Any additional comments?

    I believe in the first amendment, everyone has a right to express themselves.
    And everyone has their own voice; so let your voice...speak!

    Story
    "Short "story", as in 17 seconds of speaking"

    This is really, really short. More of a kids poem than an actual story, and consisting of only a few lines. The entire reading lasts from 1:12 to 1:29, with simple music filling out the rest of the time. The narrator did an OK job given what little she had to work with.
