The description of this story sounded intriguing, and it was fairly short (just over an hour) so that it can be completed in one sitting, which I like. However, I could not make head nor tail of it because of the amateurish production. The quality of the sound was BAD, and the reader read at race horse speed, and swallowed many of her words. She sounded like a twittery teenager. For ease of comprehension, the reading should be at a medium pace, with all the words crisply and clearly enunciated, and no fancy vocal gymnastics. Particularly with deteriorating hearing, such as I have, it sounded like a lot of gobbledegook. I don't want to appear sexist, but there are very few women who can do a half-decent job of reading. I gave up listening after ten minutes. Maybe a younger person, used to contemporary youth-speech, would have got more out of this story.
