Painful Listening ZERO star Performance

What disappointed you about Fantastic Tales?

The narrator delivers every sentence... In a relentless Captain Kirk-meets-sensationalist local newscaster style that is impossible to tolerate more than 5 minutes.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Couldn't say. I think the reason that no one has reviewed this audiobook is because they immediately returned it.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cathy Dobson?

Anyone. I would rather listen to 20+ hours of leaf blowers and barking Chihuahuas than another Cathy Dobson narration.

Any additional comments?

Audible, please rerecord these and other classics with a different narrator.
