While the basic premise of the story was charming and intriguing, the execution, both in writing and especially in performance, was lackluster. The narrator read in one long stream without appropriate emotional voice inflections or any attempt to clarify which character was speaking a given line of dialogue. Overall, I'd pass on this one.
