the motives and placing of the characters was inexpertly done, otherwise the story was mildly entertaining. Could have been brilliant start to a series if worked on a little more. will not bother with others in series due to this.

no substance to the plot. just a repetitive sequence of the same thing until word count fulfilled.

I found the story intriguing but quite a few mispronounciations (of English words) were a little jarring at times. otherwise the narrator was pleasant to listen to .
The end seemed a little rushed but I will re-listen to the final chapter again in case I missed something.

Unfortunately I could have abandoned this book at any point, even mid- chapter, without the slightest curiosity about what I might have missed. Apart from the wildly rambling narrative there were a few instances of changing viewpoint within a scene in one of the early chapters. which is a fundamental no no. Very disappointing.

excellent. upbeat and encouraging. I could have listened for hours longer but as the narrator said, this would prevent me from sitting down to write. I will listen again periodically to take more of it in at the appropriate times in my writing.

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.
