Reminded me of when I was read to as a child

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I enjoyed the collection very much.

If you’ve listened to books by the authors before, how does this one compare?

I like their old spook stories.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Cathy Dobson?

Yes, I quite like Cathy Dobson's narration. It is the style female readers used when I was a child. This was the way I was taught to read to other people (in the 1950s).

Was Haunting Stories worth the listening time?

I would set one and play it as I fell asleep every night.

Any additional comments?

I am not sure why the other listeners hated her delivery so much, since I enjoyed the experience thoroughly. I reckon it has to be some sort of style change that has happened over time. I suppose I simply don't understand how a lady is supposed to read a Victorian ghost story to people.

difficult to listen to

What disappointed you about Haunting Stories?

The reader was terrible. She read in such an affected way it was impossible to concentrate on the stories so I can't really comment on them. I am usually very impressed with the quality of readers but the opposite is the case here.

Has Haunting Stories put you off other books in this genre?

No, I'll just avoid anything that is read by her.

What didn’t you like about Cathy Dobson’s performance?

I have already said it all.

Any additional comments?

I don't know how someone so bad was allowed to be a reader.

Utter rubbish

What would have made Haunting Stories better?

These writers do not know the definition of 'haunting'. They are bleak bearing on almost dead.

Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

Possibly.

Would you be willing to try another one of Cathy Dobson’s performances?

NO

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Haunting Stories?

I would not have cut anything out.... i would have put some semblense of haunting in...
