Loud, distracting background music

I've no idea what these people were thinking when they decided 1. there HAD to be background music the entire time and 2. it had to be as loud as the reading or louder. Some of the music itself was just weird as well

I got half way through before finally giving up. I don't recall most of the stories I listened to. Sure remember the dreadful music though. Waste of money

It's in Russian!

Call it crazy but this book is spoken in Russian! Maybe my eyes didn’t see the fine print of spoken in Russian. I simply assumed that because the title was in English and the description was all in English that the spoken word would, in fact, be in English also. Ha Ha - It is not! Sooo.. if you like to listen to words that sound like they are being spoken backwards with the occasional “Niet” thrown in, do yourself a favor and find a nice English spoken book. Unless, of course, you are Russian then I am sure you will enjoy the listen - “niets” and all.
