Over 50 great classic short stories, each around 20 minutes in length - perfect for short journeys, bedtime listening and those moments in between....
Plus over 30 more gripping 20-minute tales....
The narrator had such an affected way of speaking, with a lilt at the end of every sentence, that I couldn't even make it through the first story.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
If you’ve listened to books by the authors before, how does this one compare?
No problem with the authors, but can't really comment as couldn't get through it.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Repetitive intonation that bore no relation whatsoever to the content she was reading, unnecessary mid-sentence pausing and the phrasing, in general all over the shop. Occasional flashes of competence.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
I honestly couldn't say as I couldn't get through it.
Any additional comments?
Don't waste your credit.
