Not a good reader.

The stories are great but the reader will put you to sleep. I've kept the book for that purpose.

The narration is a deal-breaker

There are about a dozen narrators on this audiobook. They are all subpar. I feel like I just paid for the worst-quality librivox production. It's poo.

Found out something really important,

(I no longer appreciate horror stories. I don't appreciate or want to spend time reading horror stories. Sorry, Audible,)

Sounds like a collection of librivox recordings

I am wondering why Audible is selling what sounds like a collection of librivox recordings of public domain stories?

Narration is SO important!

Many of these stories were very hard to listen to because of the poor narrators.
