    "Good Collection;Some you will remember a long whil"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The only thing that I would change is that I would add more stories to it! I was sorely disappointed when it was all over.


    What other book might you compare Great Horror Stories to and why?

    Any other short-story-collection-type of book. Since it's not a single novel or novella, it is a difficult question to answerm


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Cathy Dobson?

    I would, but only after having gotten used to her way of talking. Some may find the way she pronounces certain things kind of annoying. I found myself getting used to it and enjoying her narrating. (Although she is far from my favorite narrator)


    Was Great Horror Stories worth the listening time?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    This one is worth the money/token.

    Story
    "the narrator had such an irritating drone !"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator - over emphasised almost every sentence. Made the listening experience ghastlier than the stories.


    What didn’t you like about Cathy Dobson’s performance?

    Everything. She was atrocious to listen to. If I had tried this as my first ever audio book experience it would have made me leery of trying another one.
    Her over - emphasis was like chalk on a blackboard and really made it hard to enjoy the content. I will have to look for the actual book and read it myself as I could not bear a re-run via the ears.


    Was Great Horror Stories worth the listening time?

    Not with the assault on the ears. If it was possible to get the same audio book with a decent narrator I would be asking Audible for a swap.


    Any additional comments?

    I think I should be able to get a refund on this - I took to letting it run for 10 minutes while I fell asleep and have not heard one whole story of the collection - I have no desire to repeat the experience.
