This needs to be completely removed from Audible - or at least redone by someone who knows these songs and speaks Spanish. I sing all these songs (both the English and Spanish versions) and they were literally ALL butchered. This narrator didn't remember the notes to some very traditional carols.

Only a few minutes worth of info is given about the beautifully tradition of Las Posadas and it is quoted from Wikipedia?! Weird. Just weird. The bulk of this recording is the painful singing of the carols. Please look elsewhere to learn about this topic.

Cuentos de Horacio Quiroga [Stories of Horacio Quiroga] audiobook cover art

OBNOXIOUS background music ruins the stories

Would you try another book from Horacio Quiroga and/or Óscar Martín?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

First of all, there are only four stories in this title: La gallina degollada, El almohadon de pluma, La muerte de Isolda, & A la deriva.

Secondly, I could not finish even the first one because the background music is so loud, stressful, monotonous, and just annoying.

The narrator is great, and the price was right, but I just could not handle the terrible music. If only there were a way to turn it off!!
