Nothing, it's unique!
Johnny Heller's performance of A Tale Dark and Grimm brought this series alive for us. I can't imagine anyone else doing a better job!
My kids (6 and 8) and I absolutely love this series of books and adore the narration. It is the first series of audio books my children have been engaged with and truly interested in hearing how the story ends. Highly recommended!
Yes, there are a few details im sure I missed the first to around. Though clearly more geared for children, the narrator is still someone I enjoyed.
Really, anytime he described something "awful" or "gross". Almost as though the narrator was a character as well...
Basically, a cute, decent listen when you don't have anything more pressing to tend to. I enjoyed the ending how it tied back to the beginning and gives rise to believe that the authors we know and love may not be as original as we thought.
