    "This is a Children's Book"
    What would have made Aesop: The Complete Collection better?

    I purchased this audiobook expecting to enjoy a mature re-telling of these timeless tales. What I got was a goofy rendition that would be better suited for kids than adults. Furthermore, these fables are not unabridged, but have been made subject to dramatic license. Most important of all, the philosophical lesson or morale of the story is too ambiguous.


    Has Aesop: The Complete Collection turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

    It was puerile.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Aesop: The Complete Collection?

    I would do it completely different. I would change everything.


    Any additional comments?

    This audiobook should be clearly marked as a Children's book.
