    "Interesting stories but read badly"
    What disappointed you about Once Upon a Time?

    The stories are interesting and written by different and excellent writers but they all run into each other because of the flat, slightly breathy style they are read in. I think Baker is aiming for an ethereal, otherworldly tone but she manages to take all the tension and emotion out of the tales and just makes them dull to listen to.


    If you’ve listened to books by the authors before, how does this one compare?

    N/A


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The authors have been poorly served by this reading. The overall effect is soporific and Baker's breathy reading is just irritating after a while.


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

    Disappointment.
